Overall we were very pleased with the cruise, the food , service and entertainment on the Star. There were three couples in our group and we had a fun time aboard the ship and in the ports. The weather was fantastic and the seas were calm so that certainly helped. As well there were many places to sit and relax in different areas of the ship during our 7 sea days, and we did plenty of that. There was a variety of good entertainment in the theater. My husband and friends loved the Melodic Trio who played nightly in the Grand Atrium. I enjoyed the Motown music of Stan Sykes who is a regular in the Carousel Lounge.
One annoying thing was the constant sales pitch about jewelry and shopping in approved stores. When attending the shopping lady's presentation the vital information about a port only included tips on places to shop where I'm sure they get a cut of the sales!

Overall, the food was excellent. We usually ate dinner in the dining room where we enjoyed the food and the excellent service. The Blue Lagoon became a favorite for lunch. The chicken burger, chicken tenders and won ton soup were delicious. We ate at Endless Summer one night but did not enjoy their "Mexican" menu although the service was great. It is such a nice venue and should perhaps have a different menu so more people could enjoy it.

Our balcony cabin was clean well laid out and it was great to have a balcony when we went through the canal.
