Just returned from the Alaskan cruise on the NCL Pearl (July 17-24), and wanted to post a short review. Overall the ship is average at best. The food is not good, and the bar / nightlife is boring. The shows are fun and enjoyable. NOTE TO ... Read more

We spent 2 days in Seattle at the Marriott prior to boarding the Jewel and had a wonderful time there. The Marriott is right across the street from the Port so we just walked over with our suitcases when it was time for the cruise. ... Read more

We have sailed twice with Norwegian 20 years ago. At that time we were convinced that there was not another cruise line that we would ever sail with. However, after this last cruise, we will be looking at all options for our next cruise. ... Read more

My wife had had breast surgery 3 weeks before the cruise and we wanted to get away from home and just relax. We had been to Alaska before and enjoyed ourselves. This time, we just wanted to relax and not feel any pressure to sight-see ... Read more

PRO's: We have cruised several times, and the Norwegian Pearl was a nice cruise ship, with a mixed group of passengers (families, seniors, young couples, etc.). The food was generally good and varied, but virtually everything was ... Read more

This is my third time travelling to Alaska but my first time traveling on Norwegian. I have to say I found the ship to be very limited as compared to other cruise lines. If you like to eat, this is a good ship. There are a number of ... Read more

This was our 1st and unfortunately last NCL experience. We had a good time cause that's what we do, but NCL could have made it much better. Embarking and debarkation were the best, otherwise we were disappointed. - Room service was ... Read more

Excellent experience for our family, but it must be said: this line scrapes every nickel it can from your pockets. Excursions, expensive on all cruises, were utterly outrageous: $199 for a ride to the Mendenhall Glacier and and two hours ... Read more

Had a great time on this cruise, much better than I had anticipated. It gave me a newfound appreciation and fondness of Alaska, and is definitely a trip that everyone should do at least once in their lifetime! We arrived in Seattle ... Read more

This was our 2nd Alaska cruise on the Jewel. We weren't able to cruise through Tracy Arm, so the sights were not quite as spectacular. We did pass a pod of whales and that was great! Ketchikan and Skaggway are always great for shopping. ... Read more

Too many bratty kids on the boat! We chose this line because of the price. We got a very good discount. Well, i guess we got we paid for. The best time of the cruise was when we were off of the boat. However, the last stop in ... Read more
