I am scheduled on a re-positioning cruise on the Star in May. Since, apparently this is only done once/year I was wondering about the ports of call (Catalina Island/SF/Seattle/ Victoria/Vancouver). Will there be excursion on board to book or will we have to book them ourselves? Also heard they remodeled some of the cabins. We are in a suite on the 11th deck. Is this true? What are the best restaurants to book for a nice steak dinner? Is it possible to be upgraded to a nicer suite when we get on board? We are Latitude members...are our chances any better? Looking forward to a great cruise.
