I sort of feel the same way about the Star. I think the Diamond's intinerary was a little better. I totally forgot about the Amsterdam, but after looking at it, I found out that she does not make a stop in Skagway, which is where we wanted to do the dogsled excursion again. It's also $300 more for the same(?) type of mini suite we had on the Diamond. TA is still saying to hold tight, but I think for peace of mind's sake, I'll tell him to make the switch to the Star on Monday or Tuesday, as Princess should have their contingency plans in place by then. We saw the Star in Vancouver last July and she truly is a beautiful ship, and I'm positive that we'll enjoy her just as much. The only bad cruise is the one I'm not on!
