Star Boat review

Sail Date: March 2013
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: New Orleans

Absolutely pampered by our butler and room steward. Treated like VIP's from the moment we hit the check in counter. Never had a single problem the entire time. We had pre-booked all our shore excursions and decided to skip one and called our concierge who was able to resell our booking and credit us the full amount. That was outstanding as I thought I would just be out the $400 and did not expect a return at all.

With small children we spent a lot of time at the Children's pool area which does not have a bar nearby. I asked the bartender from the main pool area to please check on me once in a while and without fail he would show up with perfect timing and drink in hand. Of course I tipped extra! The lunch Buffet was good for kids but I can't really complain If I go to a buffet. Cagney's for Breakfast was great, especially the eggs benedict. We also enjoyed the private lunch at Cagney's while they prepared our suite on the 1st day. All the excursions were well operated and More clean. One day we spent at the beach was so windy it felt like you were being sandblasted. The cabin is forward facing which made it a little windy while underway but the views were magnificent coming into ports.

Forward facing suite, Plenty of room to move about and we did have room for 4 to comfortably have breakfast served. Balcony is large enough and you can see into the bridge from the balcony. (That means they can see you too) but this is only the case at the balcony rail. Don't open the balcony door while the cabin door is open because it will suck all the air from the hallway into the room or vise versa and blow all the tiles out of the ceiling. (pretty funny) 2nd bed was a pullout sofa and kids didn't complain. A nice feature is a heavy curtain that can be drawn to surround the bed for added privacy or darkness. Bathroom had a tub and shower and plenty of storage. main closet is accessible from 2 sides which was convenient. Bed was amazingly comfortable. Less
