I loved the service aboard the Sun, as always the Filipino staff was amazing. The entertainment was good and the staff in the Splash Academy was wonderful to my two girls. I really enjoyed the quality of the food as I have on all NCL cruises, the only drawback was the lack of seating in the buffet area. It seemed this venue was a little small for the amount of passengers. Breakfast was really crowded, but the rest of the day was fine as everyone was eating at different times and venues. Overall a great cruise. The entertainment was better than I expected, this being one of NCL's smallest ships. Cruising right up to Dawes Glacier was unforgettable. I highly recommend getting a balcony if you cruise to Alaska, if you cant afford it, wait until you can. This is the 4th NCL cruise we have been on and have been satisfied so far.

    I was traveling with my daughters and they loved the dogs. The scenery was great and the puppies were amazing of course.

    Booked direct, paid cash, and saved a ton. Excellent lengthy flight, landed in the most scenic lake Ive ever seen, and got to see baby mountain goats. Awesome memories.

    RENT A JEEP. This was the best excursion Ive ever done. The route you drive is the same as the white pass railway except you actually can stop and get out to play in the snow. We saw bears, seals, eagles, numerous waterfalls and didnt have to listen to a narrator. Go at your own pace for a fraction of the price. Contact them direct and save a ton.
