Very good cruise

Sail Date: May 26, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Loved the ship it was beautiful. We had an outside cabin with balcony. We really loved it. A full bathroom was nice. Staff was excellent. Shows at night were great. Don't go for food that's forsure. Market cafe is like a buffet style. And you do not serve your self the first half of the cruise because they try to keep germs away. That's ok but they don't want to serve a large portion either. Most of the time we received Tea and milk in juice glasses with our meal at the market cafe. Had to request 2 glass of Tea so I would have 1 glass to drink with my meal. The Tea tasted like instant also very bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Half of the free restaurants you had to make reservations for. That was unexpected,also the menus did not change the whole cruise. Don't look for a midnight Buffet. There really isn't one. They don't mention it When you review the cruise and they don't announce it on the ship either. There are late night snacks in the casino Imagine that. Other wise you go look for something to eat in a few places that are still open, if you are really hungry.
Seems like the day's activities were more about trying to sell you things. Night time was selling krackets. These are like loto tickets that you can use to play Bingo with or a the casino.
The evening shows were very good. Jean Ann Company did a good job. Seconded city comedy was very good.

Pros: Ship was very very nice. Well maintained. Staff was excelent. Night shows very good.

Cons: FOOD! The food in the buffet was ok.The desserts were alittle bland and had no taste to them. Was not that impressed with the food at the free restaurants. Mostly was served for looks. not that great and not that much food was served.

Recommends Norwegian Star? No.

Service and Staff
Juneau, Alaska
We went up Mount Roberts on the skytram. We enjoyed that and walked the trail up the mountian to the snow.That was enjoyable. And on the way down we saw a bear in a tree. We did find some unique christmas ortaments and I purchase some for gifts.
Don't Miss: SkyTram up to Mount Roberts

Skagway, Alaska
We thought we were taking a train ride that would last about 4 hours so we could see other parts of Skagway. But the tour started were they once dredged for gold and we paned a little gold which was in a controled environment. It was still enjoyable, but the train ride through the yukon did not leave until 12:00 and We did not get back until 6:20 PM which made the ship wait and we never got to see anything else of Skagway.
Ketchikan, Alaska
Liked ketchikan as soon as we docked. We took the navtive excursion and enjoyed the totum poles and learned about clans. The guide was local and really knew about their history.
Don't Miss: Don't miss the nature tour. Don't worry about shoping. There's the same thing in just about every port
