Really nothing there. However, the best meal of the trip was at a small hole-in-the -wall restaurant calles Smiles on the pier.

Took a whale watching trip (not from the ships offerings) and it was the best part of the whole trip.
Don't Miss: "Weather Permitting Alaska" whale watching. He takes out only 6 people.

Pros: Excellent staff

Cons: Boarding was a nightmare

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!
