7 Night Alaska & Sawyer Glacier (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 22, 2009
Ship: Norwegian Star
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple

The crew made this a great experience. Always ready to provide help. The crew did everything to make it a first quality cruise. The entertainment was real quality performances and performers. The freestyle cruising left flexibility to do what we wanted, when we wanted. We could change our schedule easily. The food choices and quality were far beyond expectations.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Multiple restaurants, with multiple choices - all first rate. We had two meals in the specialty resturants, and then could hardly imagine why anyone would pay extra for them. The main dining rooms were just as good. The freestyle dining and sitting with multiple other passengers enhanced the cruise.


5 out of 5
Unbelievable good. A variety, multiple venues and quality performance - singers and dancers were Broadway quality..

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
They responded to everything and kept the room immaculate. Everyone on the crew had a smile and a welcome. There was some difficulty communicating on occasion and we had to work around that.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
We don't have the experience to compare, but I can't imagine anything more could be given or wanted.
