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

This was our third cruise on NCL and our seventh overall. We are both early 50's. I think this was our best cruise ever. Everything was really nice. Flew in to Vancouver the morning of the cruise and had an NCL bus transfer to the ... Read more

We were given a "free" cruise and had always wanted to see Alaska. The cabin was very nice. The steward was barely adequate. The ship was comfortable with lots of options for things to do and see. The shows we saw were ... Read more

With one minor, yet considerable, drawback this was a great experience! So let's get rid of the bad news first. Whether it was because we are at Gold Latitudes level, or just plain luck, we got speedy prime location in the dining rooms ... Read more

We picked this cruise for a second time for the fun and for not having to fly to Miami. The Horseshoe Bay pink sand beach is by far the best our family has experienced anywhere, better than Hawaii, Australia, US, Bahamas or even the ... Read more

Went to the Baltics 2 years ago and loved it so wanted to go back. The NCL Star is a lovely ship . Couldn't fault it at all. We had an overnight stay in Copenhagen before embarkation. Copenhagen is a beautiful city and very easy to get ... Read more

1. We are not new to cursing, so we are familiar with cruise enbarkation; the embarkation on the NCL Breakaway was a fiasco. Luckily we booked a semi-suite or (what ever they call it on NCL) this is an up grade. They said we could bring ... Read more

The Norwegian Peal has very small rooms and the ship needs to be refurbished badly. The bath sinks are cracked and equipped with kitchen faucets. Large paint chips were sheering off the pipes into the floor on the balcony, and it was ... Read more
