Sail Date: Jun 2015

My niece had flown with Norwegian Air while in Europe and raved about the experience, so when she graduated from college we decided to use Norwegian Cruise Lines to travel to Alaska. Our expensive, once in a lifetime vacation.

I booked the entire trip through the Norwegian Cruise Line desk. The first words out of my mouth were "I AM IN A WHEEKCHAIR". This must mean something different to them than it means to me. Luckily, I am pretty able bodied, I am missing a leg, but get around very well.

Had they bothered to tell me what a BAD idea it was to want to go on a cruise in a wheelchair, we would not have WASTED the thousands of dollars it cost.

Cabin Review

Way too small for a wheelchair! I never got to see the balcony as there was furniture in the way and no where to move it to.

Port Reviews


We arrived so late there was no time to see Seattle.
