  3. Norwegian Star
I have not ever been on a cruise before and did not know what to expect but friends always mentioned fabulous food. I have to say I was completely let down in this department on the Star. The food went from unremarkable to downright awful. And forget freestyle. The one time my mom and I requested to have breakfast together, just the two of us, we were told we would have to wait. Then told several times - " you're sharing, right?" Until we just said yes. And did. Then, I got served cold pancakes. The Market Cafe was always so crowded it was hard to get a meal there. The time in Alaska was so wonderful! I wouldn't have missed it for anything, But I really hope never to be stuck on cruise ship again. Our cabin was very nice but Deck 10 was under construction, had a very bad smell and was loud. Amazing trip to Misty Fjords in a sea plane. Check out Saxman Totem poles, too. Awesome shopping and Annabelle's Restaurant with blue cheese crusted halibut is wonderful!. Whale watching - just can't say enough good things about the Scania! So much fun!!! The only thing I can say is wish we had all day there....would go back in a heartbeat!!! Chilikoot Tour Bus up and White Pass Train down. Fascinating history and scenery. Wonderful shopping and great beer at Bonanza Grill. My first train ride except at the zoo. Loved it!!!!! Would give it a zero if I could. No scenery, nothing of note or interest. What in the world? Why in the world?Ridiculous!
