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

FOOD & DINING Not a thing to complain about, especially from a guy who dislikes cooking. I personally prefer healthier options and trust that they had a ton of them. We also dined at 3 specialty restaurants per our tradition and ... Read more

This was my second Alaska cruise (my fourth overall). I went two years ago on the same route with Princess, so that cruise is still fresh in my mind for comparison. Overall, I think Norwegian did a much better job for a few different ... Read more
