If you have any questions about the N.Star, you should check out a fantastic web site posted by a recent cruiser. Go to www.orcatekweb.com
You might also have a look at www.cruisecritic.com
There are many reviews and comments there from past cruisers like me. I thought the Star was the best. Apparently many others do as well. The Cruisecritic Readers Poll lists the Star as #1 in the Top Ten Ships category.
