We booked our cruise through Costco.com and booked this particular because the dates worked well for everyone in our party (13 of us total) and it went round-trip out of Seattle. Embarkation and disembarkation went more smoothly than any ... Read more

We went to Alaska on the Jewel. I was so impressed with how well the ship was maintained and kept clean. The staff was so nice and friendly. The officers and crew were awesome. We had the pleasure to meet the Captain several times and ... Read more

By all means get a cabin with some kind of window: We were on deck 4 ( the lowest one) and had a porthole...it was just fine! Think twice before you "buy" internet service on the ship. My husband did, and we had issues ... Read more

We were a multi-generational family group with one 9 year old child, two sets of grandparents and my DH and I. First cruise for ALL of us - so none of us knew what to expect. I did HEAPS of research and was the main trip-planner for ... Read more

We chose this cruise as I wanted to do a one way trip this time. A few years ago we did a round trip Seattle on Celebrity, and it was sad seeing the other ships heading north on the last day when we had two days at sea heading south. ... Read more

This was 7th NCL cruise and by far the worst experience during embarkation via Vancouver terminal. The process of boarding this ship was like a cattle drive! My husband and I paid over $15,000 (including shore excursions and pre-paid ... Read more

Very nice stateroom. Lots of room and storage, the room however is behind the stairs, so there was a lot of noise especially when luggage was being retrieved for disembarkation. The food was not what we expected. We ate in the Four Seasons ... Read more

The main dining hall was great, with great service and food. Each port it was very easy to get on and off of the ship. They did a great job at the glaciers, getting close, and giving great explaining what was going on. The only issues ... Read more

We sailed the Sun from Vancouver to Seward in July: two parents, two teens. We had two inside staterooms, which were surprisingly roomy with great storage. The ship is dated in décor but very well maintained. Throughout our ... Read more

This cruise was a great experience. The ship was very clean, service was outstanding - especially the bar staff and cabin stewards. Offers a wide variety of food options and the beverage package is a plus. Getting on and off the ship ... Read more

Wanted to take my dad on an Alaskan cruise. My husband and I have been cruising since 2003. We took this exact cruise, exact ship to the exact port in 2007. At the time, NCL was my favorite as they were the first ones to introduce ... Read more

Everything went as planned. We spent time off the ship in every port, including Seattle which was our departure point. Out excursions were great, especially the whale watching/Mendenhall Glacier excursion. Cabins were cleaned and ... Read more

This was our very first cruise so we have nothing to compare it to, but we were pleased. We had an inside cabin which worked out fine. It was dark and easier to sleep. Cagney's Steakhouse was so delicious. O'Sheehans had a great breakfast ... Read more

This is a great cruise line. I think the Jewel is a very pretty ship and staff on board are attentive and pleasant, without going overboard just to receive a reward. I am ready to go again, on NCL, on any ship in their fleet. The cruise ... Read more

My 85-year-old mother-in-law is finally getting to her bucket list and took my husband and me on this cruise. Her money. She is not wealthy. She has never led an extravagent life-style, so this was a huge deal for her. I helped make the ... Read more

Very nice stateroom. Lots of room, lots of storage, very roomy. The TV didn't work well - we had to eventually have it replaced which took a lot of calls to guest services. It took hours for them to finally respond. Our steward was not ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the unique itinerary and was not disappointed in where we went or the ports of call. Freestyle Dining definitely is worth it though the wait staff in several of the restaurants were not very attentive. We ... Read more
