A Relaxing Vacation

Sail Date: June 05, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We were very impressed of the different restaurants to select from. We had no problems getting any reservations or waiting long for a table. All the staff were very courteous, kind and helpful. The ship was so big it never felt we were traveling with almost a couple thousands of passengers. We were so pleased with all the activities available.

Pros: Eating anywhere, anytime, any attire

Cons: none

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship was large enough to be able to enjoy peace and quiet. Most of the public areas were cleaned, except one day several of the toilets were overflowing and it was messy in one of the public restrooms. Otherwise, all the areas were very clean.
Food and Dining
We were very satisfied of the variety of food in the different restaurants. We were able to change reservations without any problems. We were able to be served at all times of the day, even when it was very early before restaurants opened. We preferred the other restaurants than the market place buffet. The buffet's food was not as hot.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a guarenteed room and was very pleased of the location. The size was bigger than expected and it was always cleaned with clean linen.
Service and Staff
All the staff were very courteous and helpful. The servers were always very polite and worked very hard at all time. The stateroom staff were friendly and took care of our needs at all times.
We were impressed that there were many activities available.
Juneau, Alaska
There were many excursions to select from.
Don't Miss: Whale watching.
Skagway, Alaska
We enjoyed the glacier tour. Too many jewelry shops. Not to impressive.
Don't Miss: The safari glacier excursion
Prince Rupert, British Columbia
I felt it was a waste of time if you didn't book any excursions. Nothing to see at this port.
Ketchikan, Alaska
It had many shops and things available to see or do. I thought the village would be bigger.
Don't Miss: Viewing eagles.
