Ship Facts: Norwegian Star Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Star Deck Plans
Awesome Alaska Inner Passage Cruise - July 2011
I am new to cruising and wasn't quite sure what to expect. We wondered how the motion of the ocean would effect us. How fun would it be if we were sick all the time.

First of all, if you get sea sick I highly recommend the inner passage cruise. The Inner passage is just that, a cruise along the coast of Canada and Alaska between a row of islands and the mainland. There are almost no waves. During our cruise there was just one day on the open ocean. We did experience a some sea sickness that day but we took Dramamine and we were back on our feet in no time.

The inner passage is beautiful. From the point we entered it you see land on both sides of the ship with small fishing villages along the way. The land is primitive, rugged, green and covered with trees. The cloud ceiling is lower that the peaks of the hills giving the whole area a mystic feel. Definitely spring for a balcony room on this one. It was AWESOME sitting on our own balcony watching the scenery float by.

NCL is a good cruise line and all the staff were very helpful and pleasant. The Norwegian Star is a freestyle cruise ship so you can eat when it best suits your plans. They also have a restaurant in the stern of the ship called the Versailles that is beautiful and has great views out the side and back of the ship. We found this restaurant to be our favorite and ate most meals there. It was also not a buffet which pleased my wife.
