Default Star-AH stateroom on deck 12

Has anyone sailed in the new AH or Aj cabins on the Star? Have not seen any photos of the AH on the forums. We are booked in the AH for 2/5/11 to the MR.
If anyone has photos, please post, excited about seeing these rooms..
Any suggestions for excursions in the MR? Dona

Here are a couple of pictures of the AH cabins. Though they have no balcony they look quite nice and have all the suite amenities.







Take care,
Mike

Hi Mike-thanks for the pics. They are supposed to have a balcony and that's what all our docs say-it should be to the left of the bed in the picture.

Hi-just got off the NCL Star-AH suite 12012! Loved the room! Tons of drawers, some we didn't even use. The two AH suites are patio to patio. Couldn't hear anything from the AJ? next door without the balcony so it was pretty private. We had Lucky for our butler and he was great but shy. Moses and Alberto were our room stewards and they were wonderful!! The same suites without the balcony are the same size but where our balcony was they have the couch and 2 chairs and coffee table. Where our couch was-they had a dining table and Murphy Bed on the wall. The TV was in a strange position-you had to be on the bed or on the sofa to see it-not both. Loved the big bathroom with the drawers. Nice ammenities. Will post some pictutes-feel free to ask questions. We did sneak a peek at the owners suite and the view out the front of the ship was spectacular but no balcony.

Yes-we loved Cagneys for the lunch and breakfast. The service is so good and they even have a fruit/danish/cereal buffet in addition to the menu. They have the best sliders and fries for lunch!! We ate in Cagneys for dinner a few times also. There is a great waiter named Johnson-tell him hi for us! Also, the hostess for Cagneys is Charmaine (in the morning) and she is wonderful!! I would take some of those hooks that you could use in the room that can be taken off without damage. We could have used a couple. Also, the expresso machine makes tea and we didn't figure that out until the last couple of days and it was delicious! Have a great time!

was that the fridge sitting below the tv? Were there bath products in the restroom. Did you try the whirlpool tub? if there was one, and was it noisy? We have not been in a suite before, this will be a treat..Doing the Mexican Riviera for hubbys 65th b-day. Another couple are joining us and will be in a BA on deck 10. I had to tell them about not getting to eat in Cagneys for breakfast and lunch. They are early risers, as I am, but hubby is not. It will all work out, for sure. Thanks agin for your photos. Was the walk in closet a good size, and what do you mean by the hooks? Thanks Dona

Hi- no below the tv is just another little "dresser" with two drawers. I thought the wires hanging down from the tv were tacky but that's just me. The DVD player/library was nice when there wasn't anything we wanted to do. The little fridge was under the desk opposite, under where the expresso machine is. The bath tub wasn't a whirlpool. Yes, they had nice Elemis lotion, shampoo and conditioner. There is a jar with bath salts on the tub. I would have liked hooks for my nightgown or robe (they do supply the robes), or the hand towel. The closet wasn't really what you would call a walk in because they all had doors. It was in the little hallway off the front door on the way to the bathroom. It took some manuevering to get into two of them because you had to close the door to the bathroom. I will post some additional pics. Maybe it will be more clear.

Dona, have a great time! Yep I am on CC alot..thats where I first found your posts, and now feel like a stalker..lol..cause I did a search for this cabin #!

We have a trailer in WI....we almost live in it from May to OCt...lol..its a 40 ft'er..we cant move it though!
Yes, we are bundled up here...temps are going to drop very low , along with the 22 inches of snow we have, so its fun to read about others cruises now!!

At least you had your winter coat to wear...but seems so unlikely in AZ! Hubby went to ASU and thats our plan...eventually..1/2 yr in AZ, the other half in WI!

Have a fabulous cruise and enjoy the penthouse and balcony...only 4 of them on deck 12!!!

Hi, I'm new on this forum but I have been on Cruise Critic for quite some time. I found this post when I did a search for this room #! We're considering booking a penthouse on a Bermuda cruise for next year, and are trying to figure out whether we want this one or an aft on deck 9. I was just wondering if you could hear any noise from the running track above? Also, did the TV turn to face the bed at a good enough angle to comfortably watch? The ship will be docked in Bermuda for three whole days, so we'll probably be spending more time in the suite than we normally would, which makes room selection even more important!

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi- Only noticed a little noise from above-not really a problem. We didn't hear any noise from the rooms next to ours, unless the people on the left were on their balcony. the room to the right didn't have a balcony and we never heard thenm. The TV did turn all the way around for watching from bed. The extra room was really nice and the balcony was very roomy. Let me know if I can help with any other questions!

we loved this room last week. The balcony is really nice, protected from the wind. Which there really wasn't any. The tv could be moved to view from the bed or the living area. They have fixed the look of the wires hanging down. Much nicer now. We heard NO noise from above or next to us. The only little bit of noise was kids next door coming back from the pool and entering the room. They were happy and excited.
There is a DVD album to pick lots of movies from, no charge. The butler bring them. We didn't watch any.
Our weather was perfect, very smooth sea wavelets. You do feel a bit of motion in the room. The king bed was extremely comfy. I could have taken the bathroom home. The 2 room steward were great.
We had lunch for 4 in the room, since there is no dining table, the coffee table must be used. It does make it a little uncomfortable, but we managed.
Cagneys was superb. I had the crab eggs benedict about 4 days. superb, superb!!
We only had dinner in Cagneys on the monday night to celebrate hubbys birthday. There were 4 of us, and it was-can I use that word again-superb!
We didn't eat in any other pay restaurant. Both main dining rooms, food was very good, service also good.
Blue Lagoon cheesecake is great..! unfortunately I had it about 3 times!
We did one show(we are not show goers) it was the vegas revue-not what I expected but ok. If you have questions let me know. I posted a review on CC today, but it is not on yet. Would I book the penthouse with balcony again-oh yes! Dona

Thanks for your review! So glad you enjoyed the cruise and the room! We were originally thinking of this room for a Bermuda cruise...now we're still thinking of this room, only for a Caribbean escape cruise from Tampa to New York next April. In any case, I'd love to see any photos you have, especially any of the balcony, if you have them.

Once again, thanks for the review!

Great photos. Looks like you had a fabulous time! I'll definitely be booking one of these AH penthouses just as soon as my TA gets back from vacation. Our first penthouse - VERY EXCITED! Did you eat breakfast at Cagney's?

My husband is really looking forward to breakfast at Cagney's. He's not a big fan of the hustle and bustle in the buffet, so being able to eat a terrific breakfast in a quiet area will be a nice change!

Thanks again for all your information!
