We took the Star in January and I wrote a mini-review on this site. My only "complaint" was the elevators which is true on a lot of other cruise lines not just that ship. Not because there were crowded or slow coming, it was because the light that sticks out to indicate the direction it was going did not work sometimes. Hence, you would hear a ding (going up) or ding ding (going down) but by the time you figured out which one it was by looking at the lights flush to the wall or an open door, it was gone. I learned to watch the call buttons and if all the "call" buttons going your direction went out, it meant an elevator was there somewhere and to hope you could locate it before it left. Smoking locations were not very good but that probably doesn't bother you or 99% of the other passengers (lol)
Other than that, I thought the ship was just fine and had a great time. Crew was especially good. Shows outstanding. Yes, it is a little frayed around the edges but due for dry dock so you can't blame them for giving some things a "band aid" treatment if it needs major attention until then.
Some people think because it is "biodegradable" it will be o.k.to flush or they are just plain "rules don't apply to me" and I won't put very much down the toilet but I don't like that paper thin toilet paper. I've often said that the only good thing coming off a cruise and getting home is 2-ply toilet paper (lol). I have had to tell more than one client that their 2-ply biodegradable toilet paper they want to take and use will cause major problems not only for them but for many cabins around them.. The ship isn't worried about about being green, they know that even Kleenex will cause a problem.
