Is there an indoor pool on the Star? and are the Caribe balconies half covered and larger like the Grand ?

I've only been on the Coral, Emerald and Sun

Yes, the Calypso Reef and Pool is indoors and the Caribe balconies are half-covered and large.

She's a sister to the Grand but with a few things that differ on the Star:

- closets in the staterooms are larger
- Skywalkers instead of the One5 club (Skywalkers was removed from the Grand)
- there is a mid ship staircase that is accessible to passengers
- no window suites
- no Alfredos pizza parlor

There may be a few other minor differences but otherwise, you won't notice a lot of differences except the Star is a bit newer than the Grand.
