We just completed a cruise on the Hudson River on the Star. Having cruised many times before (albeit on different lines), I must tell you that this cruise was not good. One set of passengers that we got to know fairly well even left early because they were so disappointed. The ship needs a complete face lift and mechanical overhaul. Specific issues:

1. Systems

a. The water system was undergoing a “purge” when we arrived on the ship, and we could not even wash our hands until after dinner. We never did get an understandable explanation.

Cabin Review

Outdated and in need of a complete face lift. Air quality bad. See comment above.
