Having sailed 3 other lines, I was anxious to give NCL a try. Alaska was a perfect itinerary to do so,as we took the train up to Seattle from Portland and got to save some money for the excursions and a sweet upgrade. We upgraded into ... Read more

Lets start off with the ship. This was one of the best kept and most clean that I have seen cruise ship in years. I think the Captain has a lot to do with this. Second is the crew. I felt as welcomed and had fun each and every day with ... Read more

Sailing on the Norwegian Sun was a truly extraordinary experience! There's really no comparison to other cruise lines like Carnival or Royal Caribbean. Norwegian is insanely superior: it's the difference between kinda-having-fun-on-a-boat ... Read more
