There were mostly good things about this cruise.  One thing they could have done is included one or two more ports.  The cruise staff was mostly friendly and good.  However the bar staff in a couple of places need to be fired.  Rude, disrespectful and downright full of attitude.  For no good reason  other than they can.  They also need to change the mattresses.  They sink in the middle and are hard as rocks.  Heard more than one person mention this.  The food was good no matter where we ate.  The drink package and specialty dining package were awesome, although we also ate in the main dining rooms and buffet and had great meals.

Cabin was great and so was the staff. However the mattresses were so old and hard and uncomfortable. Also the couch and furniture was well worn. The cabins definitely were not part of the 2015 remodel!

Ship Tip

The suites on the star are at the front of the ship and right under the running area around the ship. Also above is the bar. So there is some bumping and scraping early in the morning and it is a little bit more rough up front.
