First Timer Lessons Learned

Review for Norwegian Encore to Alaska

First Time Cruiser • Age 20s

Booked this cruise for our honeymoon and the most important thing we learned was that an Alaskan cruise is enjoyed better if you go at the beginning of spring or summer. Don’t wait until fall then it’s too late! Our cruise was the last one of the season and we could tell when we reached ports. Ketchikan and Victoria were basically closed and our itinerary changed last minute so Skagway was ...

Travel with Alan had a killer deal on a 21 day Panama trip. Ok, where to start: Soaked cabin floor, had to move. Likely black mold! They tried to fix it by blowing hot air around the cabin! Moved to worse cabin location at the very aft of the ship. Heavy rocking and vibrations. Forced to move during Panama lock run Missed two hours of Panama Canal Screaming balcony door all night Rattling ...

We wife and I booked this cruise as a getaway! We live in South Florida and flew to Seattle for the 20 day cruise back to Miami. We upgraded to a balcony suite. Bigger room and balcony, but all the suites on the 11th floor are the noisiest on the whole ship! Your underneath the Spinnaker Lounge which goes on until 11PM and the maintainable work goes in until 12.30 AM, but that’s not the ...

Terrific itinerary and amazing service on NCL Jewel

We lucked out with this cruise. Being late in the season, there was only half the capacity of guests. Everyone on board enjoyed VIP service from the friendly, attentive crew. We chose the trip for the itinerary: starting in Vancouver, to Alaska, then south to San Francisco and LA - a nice variety of ports and scenery. It was our first time to Alaska and we are already planning another so we can ...

First and Last Time on NCL

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

After an almost 20 year hiatus and after becoming a recent widower, I decided to take another cruise again -- this time as a solo traveler for the first time in my life. I had been to Alaska previously on Crystal and Princess and wanted to go again, so I chose NCL because they are one of the few cruiselines to offer solo cabins. My travel agent informed me that they were having a special sale on ...

this was our first trip going to Alaska, we have done the carribean cruises so this was a always one we wanted to do. On the whole thee ship was great. the service was very good and the food even the buffets were outstanding. Now to two small complaints the ship has a capacity for 4004 guests and this trip only 2700 were on board. So you would think they would not have run out of coffee for the ...

We chose this cruise because my husband always wanted to go to Alaska. This cruise exceeded expectations in every way. We were just blown away by the beauty of Alaska, and also by the Norwegian Bliss! First, the ship. She is a beauty. We received our upgrade request for a spa balcony so we had access to the Thermal Suite every day. It was great. Our steward was Jay and he was nothing ...

NCL has stepped up its game with food options, but the times in port on this cruise are not conducive to sight-seeing

We traveled as a group of friends. We chose NCL because we had cruise credits we had to use. We chose this cruise because it fit our schedule. I have been to Alaska on Princess and enjoyed it, so I thought this would be similar. The ship is spectacular. It is huge but does not feel that big. The ship was sailing at about 60% capacity. But, even with that, the theatre was full for the ...

Boarding was a long and lengthy process. From the time the Uber dropped us off at the port terminal until we reached the boat was a total of about 2 hours. All standing in one line after another. Our baggage was pre-tagged so it was a simple drop off. Afterwards we were in a king to check passports. Then we were in another line to check vaccination cards. Next we were in another line to ask us ...
