Words cannot describe how happy we were with this NCL cruise. It was truly one of the best experiences of my life. Certainly as vacations go it is the best I've ever experienced. And I have had some really good ones! I absolutely recommend this cruise and NCL cruise line if you are looking to see Alaska. Everything was first rate from the excursions offered to the amenities, food, ship, and people. Were there hiccups? Of course. But many of those were because we were first time cruisers. A few pieces of advice I'd offer for first timers is to fully use you Personal Cruise Consultant assigned to you. Use him/her for everything. We did not take full advantage and had some struggles. But even with the struggles the voyage and destinations were so awe-inspiring and fun, the few issues seemed minor and did not merit further thought. Some other advice I'd offer is don't pinch pennies on the excursions. Not to be free with other peoples money, but even if you splurge a bit on one of the excursions offered, do it. A sea plane to the Misty Fjord or landing on the Mendenhall Glacier in a helicopter will be the highlight of your trip. Finally, plan for an extra day in Seattle if possible. There is a lot to see there! If I had anything negative to say it would be that there are a number of activities, entertainment, and such on the ship which cost "extra." Here's the deal, we were able to stay busy and have fun without many of those because there is so much to do. A couple of things we did do were the thermal spa package and the go karts just so we could say we did it. That was pretty fun actually. We also paid to have water bottles in our cabin and did the soda package. That was money well spent for us. So budget for those things you think are important, take full advantage of everything offered as part of your cruise package, and accept that there will always be a hiccup or two.... and you will have the time of your life!
