This was 7th NCL cruise and by far the worst experience during embarkation via Vancouver terminal. The process of boarding this ship was like a cattle drive! My husband and I paid over $15,000 (including shore excursions and pre-paid ... Read more

Very nice stateroom. Lots of room and storage, the room however is behind the stairs, so there was a lot of noise especially when luggage was being retrieved for disembarkation. The food was not what we expected. We ate in the Four Seasons ... Read more

The main dining hall was great, with great service and food. Each port it was very easy to get on and off of the ship. They did a great job at the glaciers, getting close, and giving great explaining what was going on. The only issues ... Read more

We sailed the Sun from Vancouver to Seward in July: two parents, two teens. We had two inside staterooms, which were surprisingly roomy with great storage. The ship is dated in décor but very well maintained. Throughout our ... Read more

This cruise was a great experience. The ship was very clean, service was outstanding - especially the bar staff and cabin stewards. Offers a wide variety of food options and the beverage package is a plus. Getting on and off the ship ... Read more

Very nice stateroom. Lots of room, lots of storage, very roomy. The TV didn't work well - we had to eventually have it replaced which took a lot of calls to guest services. It took hours for them to finally respond. Our steward was not ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the unique itinerary and was not disappointed in where we went or the ports of call. Freestyle Dining definitely is worth it though the wait staff in several of the restaurants were not very attentive. We ... Read more

We attended a wedding in Seward, AK and thought a cruise on our way back would be a great way to explore Alaska's coast. The staff were very friendly and we enjoyed the many dining options. We did get a little bored on our at sea days ... Read more

As this was our first cruise, I did some research and had some concern; hidden charges, draconian rules that some lines impose, and being swamped with thousands of people on the ship and ashore None of these turned out to be a problem on ... Read more

Long story short, while I had fun on this cruise, the lack of enjoyable activities on the ship and constant presence of sales pitches makes me feel no desire to ever book with NCL again. Cabin: Nice. Small room, but organized well ... Read more
