My wife and I done a 28 day south pacific cruise on the star in april this year and loved it. The ship is an older model but the crew done their best to make everyone comfortable. We were in room A746 with the extra large balcony and it was very nice. the room was close to the rear pool (about 25 paces), close to the rear elevators so the dinning room was easy to get to. the entertainment was good not great. you had to get to the main theater early for a good seat. the theater is old and some of the seats are not good to sit in, so watch where you sit. hot tub and kiddy pool and sun bathing area are close to your room. oh and the buffet is right next to the aft pool , so you are close to everything. the food was to us just average cruise ship food. let me know if I can help any more.
