There were 9 people in my traveling party. We chose Norwegian because they offered a decent price for the cruise that we were interested in taking. We also liked the idea of not having a formal night as we knew that we were already going ... Read more

Not sure why I chose Norwegian. I had only sailed on Carnival and really wanted to try another one. The views from our cabin AFT 9278 were spectacular. Whales, iceburgs, otters, eagles. You could not ask for better. BUT - the food ... Read more

Explored Vancouver for a full day before cruise. First time for Norwegian and not sure if we will cruise again with them. Five hour delay departing for some mechanical reason. Another 6 hour departure delay in Sitga when they couldn't ... Read more

My husband and I took this cruise to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. This was the first time we have cruised with Norwegian. Let me first say the cruise was good and we had a great time. We are not big drinkers so we were ... 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

This was our first cruise. We chose NCL because of the freestyle option. Our lifestyle is very relaxed- we don't like to dress up for anything- we don't like assigned seats- and we could care less about sitting at the Captain's table. We ... 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

We booked the 12 day Denali Rail explorer. The cruise part of our trip was great. We picked up the ship in Vancouver and disembarked in Seward Alaska. The ship was small but offered up everything you would need. Nightly entertainment was ... Read more

We chose Norweigan as we had been assured it was the best one to cruise the inside passage to Alaska. This was our first with them but our 5th cruise. The ship itself was clean & average. Our cabin was fine but a couple of minor ... Read more

Being our first ocean cruise we didn't know what to expect and were pleasantly surprised. Airports could learn a thing or two about embarkation/disembarkation as they were extremely quick and efficient in their process. We were on ... Read more

Over all this was on excellent cruise. The only reason why I am rating the cruise as 3 stars is due to the over maintenance of the ship. Being that it is an older ship (built in 2002) and has gone though renovation some years back, this ... Read more

We just returned from an Inside Passage cruise on the Sun. Of course the ports and scenery were the highlights of this trip. However the cruising aspect was good too. We had 3 adults staying in a mini-suite. The bed and especially the ... Read more

We just returned from a 7-day cruise through the inner passage of Alaska (round trip from Vancouver) on the Norwegian Sun, and we had a lovely time. We shared a family interior cabin on the 9th floor with me, my husband, my 11-year-old ... Read more

We chose this cruise date because of other obligations and the ports. Embarkation was a breeze. Vancouver gets my vote for best cruise port. We were through in 5 minutes. Debarking was equally smooth with plenty of cabs. We didn't ... Read more

We've done a one-night itinerary before, on Princess, and as Seattleites, love the fun and flexibility of just one night away. We were sorely disappointed on this itinerary and felt like it was an afterthought, not treated like a real ... Read more

We let NCL handle all of our travel. It took over 2 hours after we landed in Vancouver to get on the bus to the port. Then customs went as smoothly as most customs stops. After that we were herded into a room of folding chairs because ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we really enjoyed it. You cannot beat the breathtaking beauty of Alaska. We also lucked out with unusually warm weather for this time of year. The ship is starting to show some age. The embarkation seemed ... Read more
