thinking about Star or Spirit this summer....compared to Princess or Celebrity



My family and I are frequent cruisers, having cruised together for the past several summers. We have most frequently cruised Princess and Celebrity and have become accustomed to their levels of service.
We cruised Alaska on Celebrity about 5 years ago and would like to return this summer. At this point, the most affordable itineraries seem to be on NCL, either the Star of the Spirit. Having heard "mixed reviews" over the years about NCL, I am wondering if we will be happy when compared to Princess or Celebrity.
Your feedback will be appreciated!

This year I will be cruising the Star to Alaska, however, last year I cruised on the Spirit. The Spirit is slightly older and smaller, but its a very nice ship. I also prefer freestyle cruising, there are plenty of restaurants and lounges onboard. The food in the restaurants is good, the buffet is nothing special. The only reason why I chose the Spirit last year is because it left Seattle on Saturday instead of Sunday.... You'll love both ships.....


last summer went on the Star to Alaska and we loved the ship are hope to take the Jewel to PAMAMA CANNAL next April
