Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
food was boring, same thing every single day in the buffet and for the price you pay for a cruise, you should get various choices over the course of the week.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
we really enjoyed the magician show, the grand finale at the end and the ventriloquist show!

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Housekeeping staff were so nice, but bar staff and food service staff were not friendly at all.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Ship itself was fine, but food area was not clean at all, always had food laying around the buffet lines and tables were always dirty.

Cabin / Stateroom

Ports Of Call

Skagway, Alaska

Don't miss the train ride into the Yukon, we saw lots of wildlife and beautiful scenery. It's a must. Shopping isn't very good, not much to do if you don't go on excursion.
Don't Miss: traing ride into the Yukon

Ketchikan, Alaska

The shopping is great, such wonderful little shops and lots of them too. A wonderful town with nice people and much to do! Our favorite town of all the ports.
Don't Miss: Duck tour and horse drawn trolley ride through town

Prince Rupert, British Columbia

little shopping and not much to do there, not sure why the ship stops here when there isn't much to do or many shops.

Juneau, Alaska

5 out of 5
Good shopping and good food. Also like the tram ride, gives a great picture of the whole town and port overall from there.
Don't Miss: Red Dog Saloon

Pros: The ports!

Cons: food, prices

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!
