Norwegian Joy Cruise Review by CrushThatCruise
- Sail Date: May 2019
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Balcony
In addition, the embarkment and disembarkment days were handled poorly. Both boarding and leaving the ship had us joining multiple lines, had us leave the ship and badge back in only to leave the ship a second time, & because of the delays caused in the confusion many people ended up running to catch flights (including myself).
The best thing about the Joy was their show Footloose. This is a great thing too since seeing the show meant we had to miss out on their main dance party. They had some trivia, but the cruise director and team lacked luster and the games fell flat most times. The Starbucks located in the atrium where most activity occurred was nice.
In short, unless Norwegian decides to invest in training, the ship’s ergonomics, and time management; I would not suggest this ship. Alaska’s inside passage cruises are some of the best, but do yourself a favor and pick a better ship!

White Pass Scenic RailwayHad a few hiccups with the train motor failing but was provided the opportunity to return at a later time. Glad we did! The scenes were gorgeous and the trees smelled so nice! Don't go on this excursion for animals, you will not see any. Go to enjoy a classic train and see some amazing gorges, runoffs, and ice.View All 1,085 White Pass Scenic Railway Reviews
VictoriaWe all know why they stop here, but it’s worth getting off the ship and exploring their downtown and Chinatown areas.View All 1,285 Victoria Cruise Port Reviews
