Nickle and dime to death. Can't even bring a bottle of water. Can't fill up your own water bottles in the cafeteria. Can't get soda anywhere but the bar. Watered down, overpriced drinks. Sub-par entertainment that is mostly just a sales pitch for more cruises with watered down drinks and sub-par entertainment. Cirque de bijou? More like Circle De Boring. Fire and Ice needs to go back to the Howard Johnson lounge. Most of the crew barely speaks English, and barely hide their contempt for Americans. The pre-tipping policy guarantees that they won't give a rats back end whether you enjoy the trip or not. So it's expensive up front, and you have to tip twice to get a refill a tiny little glass of iced tea? The hallways smell like sewage, the dining halls are super crowded and noisy, and somebody is constantly trying to spray you with some mystery liquid at every entrance. The whole point of cruising to Alaska was to see the glacier, and they wouldn't get closer than a mile away. To much ice. There were other boats up closer, btw. Fitness classes were just commercials for good feet or some detox powder. Will never use NCL again.
Our cabin steward Rainhard was the one exception. He was friendly, knew our names, and was very helpful.
Eric and Branch were great guides. Fun, entertaining, and very competent. I always felt safe. Had a great time.View All 86 Zip-lining Reviews
Crowded, rush to the bus, rush to get back on the bus. Not enough time to enjoy the glacier.View All 971 Mendenhall Glacier Reviews
Took way too long to get there by bus. Only had 45 minutes, and there was only one seat open on the dogsled. Way too far, too rushed, and not worth it. Bad BBQ.View All 163 Dog Sledding Reviews
If you're heading down, make sure you sit on the right side of the coach. Amazing scenery.View All 1212 White Pass Scenic Railway Reviews
Traffic sucks, so plan to spend a lot of time sitting on the bus coming and going. Not nearly enough time to explore the garden (which is amazing).View All 308 Butchart Gardens Reviews
