Star MegaDo 4 Review

With bookings for the Star MegaDO 5 expected to open sometime soon, my Star MegaDO 4 review is woefully overdue.

Was it worth it?

Yes, it was “all that and a bag of chips.”

I did not do the international portion: Los Angeles-Frankfurt-Zurich-San Francisco so I can’t speak on that experience.

But I was all in for the domestic portion: San Francisco-Houston-Chicago.
