  3. Norwegian Jewel
We had an interior room; however, I recommend a balcony room as Alaska offers beautiful scenery especially when going thru fjords. Overall, the ship was great. It has been recently remodeled and they did a great job. The food was amazing. We ate in the Tsar, Azura, and Chin Chin. Being vegetarian, they were very accommodating and we could pre-order our meals the day before. Regardless of which restaurant we ate at, Tsar's or Azura, they would have our order. Chin Chin didn't have very many vegetarian options. Being with meat eaters in our group, we wanted to dine together. The others weren't too thrilled with the food there either. The sushi was good, but that's extra charge. The shows were great - Larry Omaha (comedian), Anna and Vlad (acrobats), and the main show on the last night were amazing. Must see!! We missed the Quest but Perfect Couple game was hilarious!! Don't miss it!!

Great ship, staff, and food!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Kayaking
    Great fun! On our way out was a bit easier than on the way back. There was a bit of wind. Was hoping to see a bit more wild life, however, the scenery was beautiful.

  • Mendenhall Glacier
    We booked the Mendenhall Glacier and Whale Watching tour. We saw the whales first, and then we went to the Mendenhall Glacier. Wish we had more than 45 minutes to be able to take our time and hike to the waterfall. We did it, but we were rushed.

  • Whale Watching
    We saw several whales which was amazing. Also, the scenery was just beautiful. Bring layers as it's colder on the water.

  • White Pass Scenic Railway
    The scenic railway is just great. You get to see more of Alaska and enjoy more of the gorgeous scenery. Bring a jacket if you want to stand outside. Inside, they have a potbelly stove that keeps the cart warm.
