We recently went on an Alaskan cruise on the Norwegian Star and it was perfect! The ship is beautiful with lots of activities and restaurants. The itinerary was great. The weather was perfect, sunny and clear every day. The highlights included a 3 and a half hour excustion on the White Pass railroad in Skagway, cruising to the Dawes glacier south of Juneau (the captain did a great job getting us close to the glacier), and the sighting of many humpback whales from our balcony. We also enjoyed going to the Mendenhall glacier near Juneau on an excursion. The food was fair to good in the Market Cafe, and excellent in Le Bistro and Endless Summer, and fairly good in the Blue Lagoon and the grill near the pool on deck. I didn't get the chance to try the others, although the Versailles looked gorgeous when I peeked in. Norwegian also did a great job getting our boarding passes for us and our luggage to the airport after the cruise ($15.00 per person charge but it was worth it not having to carry around luggage since our flight was not until 10:30 p.m. ) I was extremely happy with the cruise and will definitely cruise on Norwegian again.

Pros: The shows in the Stardust theatre

Cons: Expensive cocktails

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!
