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 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 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

I have just returned from a 7 night Alaska Inside Passage cruise (May 16 – May 23, 2016) on the Norwegian Sun. Alaska is so incredibly beautiful and awesome that you must see it to fully grasp the majesty of it. However, if ... 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

I liked the freestyle that Norwegian offered. The restaurants were good and the specialty were great. All the employees were friendly and some learned our names quickly which was nice. The embarkation in Vancouver was too long but that ... Read more
