  1. Star last November, OS 10006. This was a TA, and the balcony in the front was not real usable while underway unless you wanted to sit on the loungers in the front. We had a side balcony that was awesome. Being a TA, the ride was sometimes a little rough but rocked us to sleep. Also there was a banging sound, when the ship hit the waves out front. Could be bothersome for some, didn't bother me at all.
  2. November 2018 25 days....Star. Butler: Loy was really on top of things, always refilling the coffee pods, the fridge with water and mixers. Lots of afternoon treats and yes, M&Ms. We had friends over to play cards frequently and he brought huge bowls of potato chips in for us. Escort on and off the ship at embarkation and ports. (Either him or Suzana our concierge). Concierge: I kept messing up dinner reservations and she kept fixing them for me and gave me a print out. One night we had an extra guest we wanted to bring with us to Teppy and she arranged with the chef to make room for her. I have difficulties walking and she offered to escort me to my room one night but I got there alright. She checked in with us every day making sure to stop and say hi to each of us. She was amazing and we all still miss Suzy (Star, November 2018). We did the TA and b2b 11 night southern Caribbean.

  4. RIP. A loss to the community and onboard!
  5. It's all covered unless you have a butler and concierge that you use. Also if there is (are) crew members who have been especially good I like to tip them too.
  6. This happens. It does not matter which ship or cruise line you're sailing. Some people are just stupid drunks. Don't blame the ship, crew, or the cruiseline.
  7. Breakfast, where they can make my eggs any way I want them. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day though...
  8. You're very welcome and thank you for all your hard work on the spreadsheet!
  9. Hi On Star the smoking area at H20 was eliminated; when I spoke to the food/beverage director he said some people had been eating back there, and complained that they could smell smoke from the other side of H20 so there is no more smoking in H20 on the Star . I cruised 11/5-11/30/2018, just off.
  10. Hi We also sailed on Star B2B 11/5 till 11/30. We found Suzana to be awesome. She was very present to us. She actually called our suite one day when she did not see me all day to see how I was doing. She went out of her way to get that personal relationship going. She is super efficient, perhaps that is why she wasn't "touchy-feely"; she had an awful lot to deal with on the 11/19 cruise. For sure she was always very friendly with us and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed and more.
  11. Debarkation will start around 8:00AM. It is approximately an hour to the airport in Rome via private transfer or a group transfer. IMHO that is cutting it awfully close.
  12. This is why so many people get sick on cruises....
  13. WOW thank you for doing this!! Great pics and the ship looks wonderful. Can't wait! Happy sailing!
