Fantastic Cruise

Sail Date: September 2012
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Seattle
Our Cruise was like a dream come true. Our family of 4 had cruised to Hawaii
in 2007 and wanted this cruise to Alaska to be as good as the one to Hawaii. We
were not disappointed and had a great time. We were in Suite 14500 and our Concierge and Butler took very good care of us. We ate at all the special restaurants and the food was delicious at all of them. We only had one bad experience on our first evening. Our waiter seemed to disappear and when we waited an hour for our food it was cold. It was all taken care of as we were not charged for that meal.
We did not have to wait in line when we got to the ship. We were taken to our suite in a very short time.Our luggage was by our door as we entered our beautiful suite. We had the same suite in the Villa as we had on our cruise to Hawaii. There was a lot of good entertainment on the ship so we were kept busy.
We went on some Alaska excursions and enjoyed all of them. The whale watching
and the Glacier were the More best. I had a relaxing spa treatment when the guys
went fishing. We did some shopping in Skagway, Alaska and Victoria, Canada.
I really hated to get off the ship as it was such a relaxing and fun time
for us all. Thanks to The Captain and all the crew, they did a great job. Keep
up the Good Work, NCL. Thanks, Dianem24 Less

Cabin review: H114500 Garden Villa

We were in the Villa Suite 14500. It was quiet and had plenty of room for us 4. We had a great view from all of our windows. We have no complaints about our suite.

It was fantastic. We got to see a family of killer Whales.


The guys got some fish and the camp was all set up on shore to cook the fish that they caught. They had a great time.
