  3. Norwegian Jewel
It came with our Gate One travel package. We booked our Alaska vacation land and sea cruse with Gate One. We very much enjoyed seeing Denali park and Anchorage, AK. prior to our cruise. We boarded the Norwegian Jewel in Seward, AK. The embarkation process went very well. We chose an outside cabin with a balcony; it was an excellent choice. We had excellent meals while on board the Jewel and very much enjoyed eating in the Tsar's Palace. The food, service and ambiance in the restaurant was excellent! We also enjoyed eating breakfast in the Garden Cafe, O'Sheehan's Bar and Grill, and Topsider's Grill. We spent as much time outside on the deck as possible, lying on the chase lounges and enjoying the delicious "Drink of the Day." The Hubbard Glacier was awe-inspiring! We enjoyed the entertainment on several occasions, especially the comedian, Kevin Jordan. We took several shore excursions, especially the Whale Watching in Icy Straight, the White Pass Scenic Railway in Skagway and the Saxman Village tour with their totem poles.
