Not a ship for those of you that wish to avoid carcinogens.

Pros: Entertainment

Cons: Cigarette smoke pervades the ship, couldn't escape it even on the balcony.

Recommends Norwegian Star? No.

Cabin / Stateroom
Would be better if it didn't smell of wet cigarettes.
Service and Staff
Highly variable. Some were polite and spoke English, others were not and did not.
Food and Dining
Few non-dairy, vegitarian or vegan options.
Ship Quality
Several of the shows on board were good.
Prince Rupert, British Columbia
Not much there and they haven't any 3G service
Juneau, Alaska
If you go to Mendenhall glacier, check out the bear trail early before the tourists scare them into the brush.
Skagway, Alaska

Don't Miss: Check out the glassblowing experience, it included a nice garden and a tearoom that also served Alaskan IPA!
Ketchikan, Alaska
Avoid the ship-promoted jewelry stores, walk to Creek Street.
Don't Miss: Eagles and Creek Street
