Nice review, Don. I hope to take the Star on a Norway/North Cape cruise later rather than sooner, based on the alignment of a bunch of stars (heh!). The Canal looked mighty hot.

Some of my favorites through the years:
1. The incredible butt-hurt about "improper" cream for scones. For Pete's Sake, just eat.
2. The folk whose tastes are so refined they bring their own little...

I found this company on Royal Caribbean's website:
https://www.enttours.com/destinations.aspx
Hope it helps; it looks a little expensive to me, but YMMV.

I know I'll catch some flak for this, but why wouldn't someone simply take the dirty glass up to the Lido to get rid of it if it were so bothersome? I swear, I think folks just look for stuff to get...

Sail, I'm not sure if you mean the studio cabins themselves, the NCL dedicated staff/crew member who serves as a sort-of host to solo cruisers, or the Studio Lounge. I happen to think they're all...

I wish Kevin O well. He was by far the most approachable cruise executive, at least during my era of cruising. I'm trying to be positive about the future of NCL, but I'm another one of those cruisers...

I like that the Jewel doesn't have an enormous atrium that's 10 decks high (well, that might be an exaggeration). The Jewel's atrium is just the right size. I liked hanging out in the deck 6 bar area...

That's one of the coolest (heh) things I've ever seen. Finally, something that might make hot weather cruising worthwhile!

Things were pretty hairy in our location this morning, but got better as the day progressed. Welcome almost home; I'm glad you had a good trip.

I've sailed Royal Caribbean twice, and didn't much like it either time. There's a very busy, almost frantic, vibe I haven't found on any of the other lines I've sailed. The cabin bathrooms on the...

So, according to HAL, open dining means the paying customer can eat whenever she wants, provided it's within two 90-minute windows of the cruiseline's choosing? This is unacceptable, and could very...

I have simple tastes, and try not to miss the times when they have hand-dipped ice cream up at the buffet. I think the chocolate croissants at breakfast are the best sweet aboard, and I'd love to try...

Just saw this on Facebook. I'm glad to see NCL has ditched Bar Harbor in favor of Portland in the 2016 Canada/NE itineraries. I like visiting Portland a lot better.

This is a great innovation, and I hope it extends to the entire fleet (both tvs and the iconcierge app). Does any other cruise line currently put their MDR menus on cabin televisions?

Thanks for confirming there are no showers in the gym or in the gym changing area. Not a dealbreaker by any means.
