Alaska, the last frontier

Sail Date: August 06, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Nice ship but it is showing its age.

Pros: Beauty of the surroundings

Cons: We felt like we were nickel and dimed for fees. 50 bucks for a sft drink card. Internet room had a charge. Gratuity included automatically plus 12 bucks a day service fees...ouch. Yes service was excellent. We concluded an all inclusive is a better package. You are captive on a ship, not much choice

Recommends Norwegian Star? No.

Ship Quality
One area of the 8th floor smelled of sewage the entire trip. we walked farther out of the way to avoid it.
Food and Dining
Food good and service excellent.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our steward was awesome.
Service and Staff
Not one complaint.
Children's Programs
Juneau, Alaska
Needed more time here
Don't Miss: Mendenhal glacier...we missed the Tram sine time was too limited here.
Ketchikan, Alaska
very nice
Don't Miss: Creek street is great.
Prince Rupert, British Columbia
what a disapointment, we were told the cruiselines were going to discontinue going here. Wish it would have been sooner! More time should have been spent in Juneau rather than going here!
Don't Miss: nothing worth seeing
Skagway, Alaska
Don't Miss: The train ride is the best.
