It was crazy at the port trying to sign in, it was a mess. Everything is old on the ship, carpets etc. Could not get a good night sleep with a foam bed that I sunk into, it was very old & hot. The pillows were lumpy. The cabin ... Read more

We just got off the Norwegian Pearl yesterday. After reading some of the reviews on this site and others, I admit I was nervous. My mind was put at ease very quickly. This cruise was great. The food was better than expected. We ... Read more

We decided to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary with a cruise to Alaska. I am a review reader. . . .and soon narrowed it down to NCL mainly because of the Freestyle dining. We enjoyed eating when and where we wanted. And not having ... Read more

Alaska was a "bucket list" thing for me so I did this cruise as a "Cruise Next" deal when I was on the Norwegian Getaway in the Caribbean. I originally booked a normal balcony cruise but after doing a little research, ... Read more

We chose the Alaska cruise because we live in Florida and wanted to experience something completely different and far away. We chose Norwegian because we heard a lot of good things about them, and at the time we were looking to book, they ... Read more

Free Style dining and recommendation from friends. First of all we received notification of them cancelling our last port, Skagway, two days before leaving, because they had maintenance to do AFTER we sailed for 5 days. We had to come ... Read more

Upon check in at the check in counter, at the port counter of the cruise line, the entire passengers was given a notice that due to an unexpected ship repair, the cruise ship will need to be back in Seattle port a day early. So they ... Read more

BEWARE. Norwegian just completely cancelled our stop in Skagway, which we found out about on the second day of our cruise. Guest Services claimed that all guests were informed PRIOR to the trip (some guests stated they found out a day or 2 ... Read more

I chose NCL based on a great cruise in Europe on NCL we took a couple of years ago. This cruise was very disappointing from several aspects. First, due to mechanical issues, they eliminated one of the Alaskan stops, Skagway, and ... Read more

Do NOT book a cruise through Norwegian. We have cruised several times through various cruise lines and they have the worst customer service we have ever experienced. They canceled our port in Skagway and only let us know two days before ... Read more

This was a family cruise (13 people) and the trip to Alaska was indescribable. Leaving from Seattle was great. We arrived early to tour the area and experience a snapshot of Seattle. The embarkation process was welcoming and warm. The ship ... Read more

Trip to celebrate 30th wedding anniversary. While the destination was great, this ship had MANY shortcomings. Embarkation was relatively painless and received decent marks. Pretty much downhill from there. Bed linens were stained ... Read more

We had no previous cruising experience so didn't know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. Embarkation and disembarkation were well organized, and took much less time than we envisioned upon arrival, given the high volume of ... Read more

We had a wonderful time on the Norwegian Jewel! It started with leaving our car in a prepaid parking garage across the street from the cruise terminal, and then a very simple check-in process for boarding the ship. Our suitcase arrived to ... Read more

We loved our experience! The ship, and service, and food, and destinations were all great. Be warned - Norwegian is completely aggressive in trying to empty your wallet before the cruise is over. We made a game out of resisting the ... Read more

We had a wonderful vacation to Alaska aboard the Norwegian Jewel from 7/23/16-7/30/16. We sailed from and returned to Seattle. I wrote this because I read EVERYTHING there was before taking our cruise and there were somethings that I never ... Read more
