Alaska is a Wonderland!

Sail Date: July 21, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was clean and lovely. However, this was offset by the additional charges. $45 for 4 games of bingo! $8 for the drink of the day, which is $3-$4 on other cruise lines. The soft drink package was $65! There were 11 restaurants, 5 of which were free, 6 of which had much better food but cost $15-$20 per person to dine there. The least expensive bottle of wine was $34! For the two main dining rooms and buffet, one did not need reservations. For the eight remaning, reservations were required and very difficult to get. Because of the specialty restaurants, and no early and late seating for the main rooms, there was always a wait. The buffet served the same menu daily and tables were put together. There was no effort to make the buffet a nice place to dine. Service was dull compared to other ships. The casino and excursion folks were outstanding.

Pros: Dogsledding and helicopter over glaciers.

Cons: The high and extra charges on Norwegian Star.

Recommends Norwegian Star? No.
