Hey, we can have a great time in a row boat......as long as there's a bathroom! Seriously, we are just glad that we have the opportunity to go to Alaska. We're just as excited to go on the Star and I know we will have a wonderful time. Same ports, just a little different itinerary. Just saw the cliip on TV that showed the fire and the aftermath. Looks horrible! The spokesman for Mitsubishi Heavy Industries said they weren't sure if the ship could be saved or if they had to start completely over. What a drag. I'm just glad no one was hurt. It could have been worse. I was just taken aback by some of the replies.
