A great cruise experience!

Sail Date: July 02, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The scenery was breathtaking, the service excellent, the food more than one could ask for and the ports well chosen. Overall a very relaxing and visually pleasing cruise.

Pros: The scenery is excellent

Cons: Shore excersions (only due to choice and timing - too early for whale watching for example)

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!

Ship Quality
I recommend one the balcony rooms for the scenery.
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
The balcony room, about 204 sf, was more spacious than anticipated and very comfortable.
Service and Staff
Prince Rupert, British Columbia
Didn't have time to visit the town as we took the whale watching excursion and it was too early in the season as the whales had not moved in - no whales or other wild life was viewed. Nice boat ride but expensive for just that...late July or August the whales move in (found out after booked and while on the ride).
Juneau, Alaska
Skagway, Alaska
White Pass, Yukon Gold Rush rail ride was interesting but probably more so for the train enthusiast, or gold rush history buff.
Ketchikan, Alaska
