  3. Norwegian Jewel
Wonderful Cruise to Alaska from Seattle. Emarkation at this port needs a little work,a bit disorganized.Seattle its self was wonderful, wish we had come a few days earlier, versus the one extra day that we had.The Jewel is a beautiful older ship. Its is kept up very nicely. We had a balcony room that I would highly recommend for Alaska. You will get a lot of use with it, especially sailing through the inner passageway.The entertainment was good, and the staff was nice for the most part. The food was good ( not great, but good enough) but the by mid cruise, you realize that is the same old thing every day pretty much. Wish they would mix it up a bit. all of the excursions were advertised correctly, and delivered what was promised. We had three different ages groups with us, and everyone found something to their liking. Very please with the excursions. Disembarkation was easy, until we go to the public transportation part. We had a part of 8 of the airport, and we got separated after paying for a shuttle for 8 people. Our group had to wait 20 minutes at the airport for us. the woman was nasty and screaming at everyone, It was so crazy I took a picture of her screaming and waving her hands. Plan old nasty!

Beautiful scenery
