7 Night Alaska & Sawyer Glacier (Seattle Roundtrip) Sail Date: May 21, 2011 Ship: Norwegian Star Cabin Type: Balcony Reviewed: 6 years ago
Most staff members were great, but the Thai passengers were extremely rude and overbearing. Every non-Amway passenger I spoke to was totally disgusted with their behavior. NCL and Amway should have had an exclusive cruise for these animals. NCL should NEVER expose other passengers to this type of abuse. Personally, I'll never spend another dime at NCL or Amway.
Food and Dining
1 out of 5
Having paid $5000 passage for three adults, I don't think we should have felt the need to spend an additional $25 per person, per day, for decent meals in the, "Specialty" Restaurants, which weren't all that, "Special". Menus seemed at least partially catered to the Thai contingent onboard.

Typical cruise ship fare, but too much emphasis on shopping.
Service and Staff
5 out of 5
Onboard staff were the best part of the cruise. Everyone was friendly and extremely helpful.

Balcony Suite, Category MA, is advertised as capable of housing four passengers, but was very cramped with only three adults. Public areas seemed clean and well-stocked.
Cabin / Stateroom
1 out of 5
Condition of stateroom was good, thanks mainly to a fantastic Room Steward, but felt small & cramped for three adults.
The Grizzly Bear excursion was awesome! Although requiring a long (1 1/2 hour each way) ride to the viewing spots, it was well worth it! For about twenty minutes we watched a mature female Grizzly go about her daily routine. Unforgettable!
