BirdTravels to Alaska on the Norwegian Joy

BACKGROUND INFORMATION This was an Alaskan adventure on the newly refurbished Norwegian Joy. Alaska is one of our favorite locations to sail. The scenery and sea life can’t’ be matched. We sailed on inaugural Bliss last year and we were scheduled to be on “inaugural” Joy after her $50M refurbishment to move her from an Asian-based ship to an “American” ship. But, NCL had other plans and ...

We wanted to do Alaska cruise and was recommended by travel agent. Also because it was one where you don't have to get dressed up and can eat when you want to. Our group consisted of my husband and 14 year old daughter. ( Who is an introvert and loves to read all the time, this was a great trip for her) Pros We had midship balcony cabin and it was perfect for the three of us. Had lots of ...

This was our fourth trip on an Alaskan cruise and while it was the newest ship we sailed on, it was a freaking nightmare. We traveled on Norwegian 10 months prior and it was great, but it absolutely was all about the populace on the ship. It was an irritating challenge every time you wanted to eat at the buffet -- so so so many people. Bear in mind this ship holds well more than 4,000 people. Our ...

We set sail on this ship after it was refurbished, and it was great. The room was really nice (balcony) and is perfect for two guests. Our cabin steward was very good and our room kept tidy at all times. Service onboard was outstanding everywhere and it was fantastic in restaurants. The waitstaff was very personable and always ensured you were enjoying yourself. We had an opportunity to try a few ...

Embarkation - You'll see me saying time and time again, Haven is the way to go! The dedicated Haven security line and lounge to fill out forms was awesome! The parking garage being across the street from the terminal (accessible by sky bridge) was quite nice as well. One problem was when we took the elevator to the floor that said embarkation, the door was secured so we had to get backs downstairs ...

Download App prior to boarding the Ship. Kids club not worth it.

Remember to download the App prior to boarding. A lot of people in our party weren't able to download the App once the ship set sail even when we came to ports. It was difficult for our kids and cousins to communicate without having the App. They couldn't message each other and so it was hard to keep them together. Be sure to book your Go Karts & Laser Tag first thing when you get on the ship. ...

I took this cruise because we had 12 family members also going. The cabin with balcony was everything I expected. Just great. But we never saw ourStuart. There was a sign about towels on the floor to be exchanged and on the hooksto be used again. Didn't matter what we did they took all of them for exchange, but didn'tchange the beds, ever. All the bartenders were great. Very personable. ...

This was one of our all-time favourite cruises! The Norwegian Bliss is one of the most beautiful ships we've been on (modern, tasteful, understated elegance rather than in your face opulence). The staff were amazing - all were genuinely friendly and helpful. The port stops in Juneau and Skagway were awesome - as were the shore excursions (visit to glacier, whale watching, kayaking and White Pass ...

We have been on many cruises and have sailed on just about every cruise line and found this ship to be very well planned with ample space so as not to feel crowded with a full ship. Be sure to head to the observatory- best spot on the ship! Embarkation was very fast and easy. Luggage was delivered to the room within 3 hours to the room. A few items missing upon check-in however any issue that ...

We were on the last cruise of the Alaska season for the NCL Bliss. The people where excellent even for the last cruise. The food was great. The ship was beautiful with lots of activities. The race track was a lot of fun. We really enjoyed the comedians. Saving the best for last - the casino was non smoking. They have a glassed in Casino for the smokers. We ate dinner at 3 specialty places - ...
