We choose this piticular cruise at the last minute due to our original cruise the Oasis of the Seas had got cancelled due to major damage. Thank God for Ashley Bennington @ ashley@jcotravel.com. She was able to within minutes get us on the Star less than one week prior to sailing.

Honestly was a little worried about this ship due to the last minutes booking, size and activity. What an amazing suprise. Beautiful ship, decent activities, excellent ports of call and fantastic state room.

A couple of what I will call disappointments.

1 we did not get one animal towels (I know we are adults with older kids) it's just a cruise thing we where looking forward to.

2. At the Versailles restaurant they had a dress code. Button shirt, slacks, and no flip flops. My wife sadly did not bring any dress shoes. They however never said a word to us (wore flip flops, and dressy shorts). Three times we saw three different groups of African Americans being told to leave because of flip flops. Actually that had on the dressest ones I have ever seen. This was not ok to us one bit.. May have just been coincidence, but it was a weird feeling and Def not fair.

3. There Def is room for a Howl at the Moon dualing piano lounge (Club Bliss) also could have booked an couple adult comedian.

Other than that... Awesome cruise, great food and the kids made yet again friends for life.
