3 out of 5

Cruise was slightly above average

Sail Date: May 30, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

Recommend with this caveat, service ranges from execellent to poor. Food can be good but did not exceed my expectations as did food on prior NCL (before free style) and celebrity

Pros: Embarkation and debarkation carry your bags and walk off

Cons: Food in "free" dining rooms was very average and below previous cruise experiences

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!

Children's Programs
They wanted to put my 12 year old daughter with six year olds! Not much fun for her
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Service was either very good or very poor
Ketchikan, Alaska
Take a hike in the near by forest for free. Very good and is free
Prince Rupert, British Columbia
Lots of eagles. Almost no shopping. If shopping is your thing do it before Prince Rupert. Not much to see in town. This is perhaps a good time to take a nature tour.
Juneau, Alaska
seems like a fun town, but only had a short time in port
Skagway, Alaska
Very historic, take the free city tour offered by the National Park Service
