Overall it was a great trip. Boarding was a pain - took a few hours but after that getting on and off was a breeze. Staff throughout were amazing! Loved the daily newsletter. It was full of info and a great resource. We had an inside room ... Read more

Had a wonderful cruise to Alaska on the Norwegian Sun. Two days of rain, the rest sunshine and blue skies all the way. The highlight was our trip to Glacier Bay. Everyone should go. The Sun is a lovely ship, just the right size, not too ... Read more

Norwegian Cruise Lines know how to treat their guests! The rooms are very well laid out, making excellent use of the little space available on ships. The bed was two single beds pushed together, which left a canyon between us, but they ... Read more

We enjoyed our first cruise and would recommend seeing Alaska with NCL. The destination was the most important element of our trip and it's unlikely we would cruise again. however we would recommend this NCL Sun cruise itinerary to ... Read more

I need to preface this review, in that it has been over 30 years since my wife and I have been on a cruise, and a lot has changed. We had a great time on our 7 day Alaskan Cruise, but it took a little time to get use to the size of the ... Read more

Very disappointed in NCL…I was on Vacation to get away from City noise and hustle bustle. To no avail, while in the most beautiful part of the world…Glacier Bay, in Alaska, NCL had construction going on around the pool or ... Read more

The Norwegian Pearl was my first cruising experience, which I really enjoyed. The crew did a wonderful job and their service was excellent. There were many activities offered on board, and the ship information was always available and ... Read more

We stayed in room 11524. A two bedroom family villa. One nice thing about being in a suite is priority embarkation in Seattle. We where on the boat in 30 minutes. Nice room but located under the gym. Can you imagine what we heard every 6 ... Read more

Although this was my first cruise, I was blown away by all of the fantastic staff and services provided by NCL Pearl. We (8) women had the time of our lives. There aren't enough words to describe how wonderful it was. Since being home I ... Read more

The Norwegian Pearl is a beautiful ship in need of some technological updates. Be prepared to spend as much on the shore excursions and food and drinks as the cost of the cruise. The activities aboard the ship were all geared to spending ... Read more

For months we looked at reviews and wondered what our experience with NCL would be. There is something I saw a while back that summed it all up: There is no such thing as a bad cruise. Catastrophes aside, this is true. No matter the ... Read more

My husband and I (late 30’s) went on this trip without our kids, who were in school. We wanted a time when the kids would be in school, so their babysitter would get a break while they were in school. I also only counted 11 kids on ... Read more

We flew to Seattle a day before our cruise to avoid any flight delay issues. Four of the five of us had cruising experience with one rookie in the group! The embarkation process ran smoothly for the most part; however, we were told by ... Read more

The NCL Pilot's Choice Glacier excursion in Juneau was awesome, well worth the price. Would do it again! Ships that docked in the morning due to weather had this excursion cancelled, we docked later in the day and our excursion was able ... Read more

Of the cruises we have taken, this was the most enjoyable. The staff on the Pearl knew how to provide wonderful customer service from the moment we boarded the ship to disembarkation. We were fortunate to have a suite which admittedly ... Read more

Our first cruise was 14 years ago (we took a break to do some RVing instead).... a common phrase uttered during our week on the Jewel was 'why did we take so long to get back to cruising?' We met some great people (via the Cruise ... Read more

We were a group of 19, some staying in the luxurious haven suite. They were waited on hand and foot by smiling, English speaking attendants. But I found the bulk of the staff were robotic and not truly welcoming. They'd say yes ma'am ... Read more
