Cruising with families for our 50th

Sail Date: August 13, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

Food was good but not up to standards on Celebrity. We liked being able to be casual in the dining room and seated as we wished. Usually the wait was not too long. The entertainment was good. Pools and hot tubs great.

Pros: Friendliness and good service

Cons: unable to up grade to a better cabin for our daughter & family

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!

Service and Staff
Ketchikan, Alaska
Rain didn't help our activities. Rainforest trip was too slow to keep children's interest but they loved the animals.
Don't Miss: Lumberman show
Skagway, Alaska
Skagway Brewery was good food and friendly service. Train ride great but we were delayed due to train ahead mechanical problems and were on with little children for 5.5 hours without food and no way to get off. Wasted our time to do other things.
Juneau, Alaska
Big disappointment was cancelled helicopter trip because of rain. Museum was wonderful for children but a long walk for little ones. Duck boat and tram are great and not so expensive. Very good shopping spots.
