Not as nice a cruise as 20 yrs ago...

Beautiful weather in Alaska, start to finish

We are not experienced cruisers, but we are experienced world travelers. Our conclusion studying opportunities for Alaska was that there isn't much of an alternative to taking a cruise, and we booked with Norwegian ...

I found very little information on NCL Cruisetours (the land portion), so I'm including that in the trip. The four of us -- my parents (age 72 and 74), my nephew (barely 14) and myself (51) had a wonderful time on ...

For us, The SUN has set on this line.

Free Style Cruising... Or, No Style Cruising?

This was our first cruise (although we have done 3 trans-Atlantic crossings on Cunard). We chose NCL because of the timing and the fact that we wanted to disembark in Vancouver. Embarkation was quick-thank goodness- ...

Mediocre at best

Went as a solo passenger in a mini suite! I had cabin 1206. The ship was kept up OK but extremely basic in decor - CERTAINLY not luxury! The staff was all Filipinos and most did not appear to like what they were ...
