If you're not fancy people, don't own ball gowns or tuxes and want to eat with your companions, then Norwegians Freestyle Cruising is the way to go!
Casual wear, including jeans is our kind of cruise. We cruised on the Norwegian Star to Alaska in late May. We had the best weather, no rain whatsoever. The ports of call were Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway and Prince Rupert, all were great ports to visit. We saw whales, porpoises and bald eagles. The sea was calm and we had sun every day. We also visited Sawyer Glacier, the icebergs in the water on the way there were a little unnerving, but never felt scared and it was a beautiful glacier, unbelievable.
Whenever we left our cabin, upon our return the room was impeccable and always had a towel animal waiting for us on the bed. If you're going to spend the money to take a cruise make sure to get at least a balcony room. We spent a lot of time on ours with our binoculars in one hand and a glass of wine in the other, yes, it was a little cold, but we didn't care, we were on vacation!
The food was great in every restaurant we ate. Definitely spend a little extra and dine at Cagneys Steakhouse, awesome food. With freestyle cruising you can eat whenever you want too, so worth it. Can't wait to go on our next cruise with Norwegian!
