7 Night Alaska Inside Passage (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 24, 2009
Ship: Star Princess
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 8 years ago

Great ship with neat amenities. Great food servers and room stewards. The buffet was rather poor food compared to the other types of dining. Even their coffee was bad! Yet the coffee in the dining rooms was fantastic. Getting of at the different ports was a major pain, with all the perfectly managed parties and parties they couldn't get the disembarkation coordinated. They tended to nickle and dime things to death. Can't believe you have to pay for soft drinks!

Except for the horizon buffet. They were inconsistent at best. Tables went unbussed.
