Good and not so good

Review for Norwegian Encore to Alaska

Very pretty ship. Lots of bars and food options. Cabin was clean and modern with little to no wear and tear. Cabin 8742 is right above the theater and every night from 5pm to past midnight there is loud music from the on board entertainment. These are professional theater groups with the premium sound to go with them. It’s very noticeable and annoying after an hour or two. I would not recommend ...

We took a 7 day Alaska cruise out of Seattle the week of Aug 6 on the NCL Bliss, our first since before COVID hit in 2019. What worked ================================================ A gorgeous new ship. We’ve taken 5 other NCL cruises on their mid-size ships (Spirit, Dawn, Star) but wanted to try a larger ship made for AK. The Observation deck is superb, built for cooler summer weather ...

To begin, we love Norwegian. They are great. This past trip was not. We chose this trip because entry requirements back into the US were still highly restricted at the time we picked it and since the ship would be leaving and returning in the US, it was easier. Also, the original itinerary had limited at sea days. Several itinerary changes later and we essentially spent every day on the ...

This was our 2nd trip to Alaska on NCL (7th cruise on NCL in the last 7 years). The first time to Alaska was in 2015 with our 2 younger kids. This time, It was just me and the wife. We chose the Encore due to the similarities to the other NCL ships we have sailed (Joy, Escape, etc). The weather was beautiful and only rained one morning the entire time. Otherwise- it maintained 50-64 degrees ...

The ship was just beautiful but the CREW makes this ship what it is---FABULOUS! The ports were so pretty and we saw a LOT of ice and snow on the mountains. From whale watching and zipline riding, the Mendenhall Glacier, and the Great American Lumberjack Show...we just loved it all. We were in an accessible balcony cabin, 12886, and our room steward was a precious young man. Our room ran hot so he ...

I had researched the weather in each port in Alaska beforehand and it came to pass as expected. We did stop in all the ports and did a walk about in each place. We'd been to Alaska many times before and had taken the tours before. I understand the glacier stop had to be cancelled for safety reasons and many people were looking forward to it. However no one can see all Alaska has to offer in ...

Embarkation and Disembarkation were all smooth between the 4 excursions. I had a great experience with my friend's companion. I do have to give credit to the staff. They were great, enthusiastic, and friendly. The best thing about this cruise is the staff. The ship was clean and neat. The buffet food was excellent. One of the excursions we attended was Mendenhall Glacier and whale ...

This is our 5th cruise, 1st one with NCL. It will be our last. The ship itself is clean, small (which we knew). The lack of activities was very apparent immediately. The cruise director was the worst one we have ever had. Barely saw him, he had a lack of enthusiasm - unless you like to hear him talk about how fat he is. Other than trivia, the games/activities were nursing home quality. Even ...

First of all never ever let the Cruise book your airline tickets it took us 30 hours to get home. Cruise embarkation was fine .Rooms were clean and very nice room attendant did a great job cleaning but she was so busy she really didn’t get much personal care and I don’t blame her I blame the Cruise for being understaffed. The food was mediocre. Varieties in the buffet minimal. Especially ...

Why did I choose this cruise? We choose this cruise because it appeared to have more port calls than a similar Princess cruise. Lessons learned: Look carefully at the times and places of the port calls, and ability to add a land option. With the NCL itinerary, we could not add excursions on the embarkation or debarkation days nor any days before or after the cruise. Tell people about ...
