Meet the Norwegian Star. Built in 1998 at the cost of nearly US$500 million.
This is the first cruise ship to hit Alaska in 2008. The ship does the Mexican Riviera Cruise in the winter and it travelled from Los Angeles to Vancouver to pick us up and take us to the Alaska Inside Passage and Sawyer Glacier.
Norwegian Cruise Lines already sent an advance party to the ports to see if the shops are open and check which shore excursions and activities are moving forward. Other than that, we do not know what to expect. Exciting!
