This was our first ever cruise. We enjoyed the cruise and the ship was beautiful. The staff was amazing and all were very attentive to our every need, however, we were misled a bit on our state room window and what that really was. We ... Read more

We went on a Alaska cruise, mid-May 7 night round trip Seattle. Itinerary included Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, Victoria, & Glacier Bay. Note that this itinerary is very convenient and the most affordable, but not a great choice if ... Read more

Took advantage of a special offer to take this early season cruise and it was a nice way to spend a week with the 80 y.o.+ in-laws who can't get around as easily these days. Alaska is a bucket list destination and it did not disappoint. ... Read more

Full Disclosure - This was mine and my husband's first cruise. That being said, we did A LOT of research on not only this cruise line, but this specific ship. We also read tons of reviews on Cruise Critic and other sites pertaining to ... Read more

I have always wanted to take an inside passage Alaskan cruise. Hubby had never cruised and was resistant at first, but finally agreed and off we went, along with our adult son and daughter-in-law (separate cabins). Flew from Houston to ... Read more

I read every single review on this site for this ship before my cruise, so I thought it only fair to post one for someone else looking for tips on Norwegian Jewel to Alaska. I rated this cruise a 4 only knocking down one point for food. ... Read more

Always fascinated by the Alaska scenery and untouched areas. As latitude platinum members, we were able to pre-board and disembark with priority. Seattle terminal is not an especially user friendly port to sail from. Small in ability to ... Read more

One would think that even if one is staying in a regular stateroom, that NCL would offer at least decent conditions. The hallways on level four always stank of feces, like every toilet on that floor was backing up. Food was fairly ... Read more

Have cruised a moderate number of times on various cruise lines, including NCL. The good news is that the staff and crew were for the most part very friendly and professional. That being said, it was nearly impossible, other than in the ... Read more

This is my 9th cruise with 7 of them being on NCL ships. I’ve been a member of NCL’s loyalty program, Latitudes, for about 20 years, but at this time I’m not feeling the loyalty love in return. After all the cruises, I ... Read more

So let me start my saying that when I started planning our cruise to Alaska I looked at almost every cruise line available. We settled on NCL because there would be three of us and we didn't want to be sharing a room. Therefore we really ... Read more

I have cruised Norwegian line for the last 8 cruises and have found it a great delight, especially on the Pearl. However this particular cruise felt devoid of the joy and excitement I felt from the crew and the itinerary of the past. We ... Read more

We did our cruise on the last week of the season, from 20-27 Sept, 2015. Although rain was predicted beforehand, it turned out to be almost perfect, even warm enough at one point for me to sunbathe on our balcony. This was after almost 2 ... Read more
