Alaskan ports of call were great. They should have left out Prince Rupert altogether - total waste. Skagway was my fav. Scenary was great - especially seeing whales swim next to the ship. Went through one icy region that felt very Titanic like. Freaky but cool at the same time. Ship was beautiful but not much to do in the way of activities - no solarium pool so swimming was out unless you wanted to pay $20 pp/day to use the (very small) pool in the spa. Bingo was so expensive it would put you into debt. Trivia was always at a bad time and movie theater was nice but not showing first-run movies. The movies they played had been out for at least a year or more. The food was terrible!!! I actually lost weight on this cruise!

Pros: Alaska ports of call, comedy troupe

Cons: THE FOOD!!! Alcoholic drinks VERY expensive

Recommends Norwegian Star? No.
