From Vancouver, BC to Alaska. Excellent cruise. Very good food and drinks. Service was above average for the most part. Very willing to go that extra mile for you. Cabin cleaned twice a day. Well stocked, well maintained. Only small complaint was that sometimes there was a wait at the bar. There just wasn't enough staff at the right times, and you could wait up to 10 minutes to be served! This didn't happen in the restaurants, just at the walk up bars and not all the time. Otherwise a fantastic trip with great excursions in each port. Crew was always smiling and greeting us; hardly ever did we see anyone have a bad day. Best dinner was in Cagney's Steak House! Yes you pay for it, but it is worth every penny. We had the drink package, so we received a discount on the bottled wine. Was not even that expensive. Read Less

We wanted to go to Alaska to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Embarkation was fine and we enjoyed the Garden Cafe before sailing. Our cabin was nice, our first balcony! The layout of the ship was a little different compared to our last cruise, especially the Buffet. It was quite crowded being narrow and along one side of the ship and people having to walk through to get either end of the ship. Other lines have their buffet across the entire ship. The Great outdoors seating area was great and I think that the ship was designed with warmer climes with this feature in mind. Then the buffet wouldn't be too much of an issue, but in Alaska...... We went to some of the shows, which were average. The Innovation Band was the best that we saw overall. We took in 3 specialty dining rooms on this trip and the food was great as was the service. The main dining rooms are also very good. We did not like all of the extra fees that were tacked on at the end of the cruise, which also came on the last day not the night before. So it becomes hard to settle things when you're also trying to disembark. We would go to Alaska again, just probably on a different ship that's better suited to cooler weather. Meaning with an enclosed pool and a better buffet layout. Read Less

We booked this cruise in Dec 2016 directly with NCL.com to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. What should have been an easy reservation turned out to be a nightmare dealing with the corporate office. We were told back then that the cruise was filling fast and there were NO ocean-view rooms available on the upper decks. Strike one. Final payment was due in June, so we paid in full on May 30, only to have NCL double-charge our credit card. Since house taxes and insurance were also billed that month, our credit card was over-limit and frozen for two weeks while NCL "rushed" a refund. Strike two FOUR DAYS before sailing, we get new travel docs stating we are moved from a forward stateroom on 9th deck forward to a new room on 4th deck at extreme aft end, and they again charged our credit card for the "upgrade" Called to complain but corporate office in Miami are evacuated due the hurricane. Strike three We boarded the ship and I understandably had a chip on my shoulder. Our cabin was as I had anticipated deep in the bowels of the ship. When the ship left port our room resonated with the constant drone of the engines, triggering a massive migraine for my wife, one she couldn't shake for the next two days. We awoke on day three with some deck-hands pounding on the hull outside our cabin with hammers during docking at Juneau. Enter Natasha, Guest Services Supervisor on board. When she heard of our dilemma, and saw the obvious pain my wife was in, she took it upon herself to solve the problem. Our first stop was Juneau, and apparently a family emergency caused someone to leave the cruise, freeing up a cabin on deck 6A midship.. Natasha got word to us when we returned to the ship and provided assistance for us in switching cabins. After FINALLY getting a good night's sleep on night three, we both awoke feeling completely refreshed, and my wife's migraine subsided immensely. We now were able to fully enjoy the rest of the cruise and celebrate our 40th anniversary trip that we had planned for so long. The food was amazing and had a constant variety. The ship staff from the wait staff, the food attendants, cleaning staff, and entertainers all had constant smiles ! The pools and hot tubs were very enjoyable, although the salt content in the pools was quite high, causing some eye irritation. The entertainment was top-notch and we very much enjoyed the nightly shows. The Sun is an amazing ship in very good repair. No signs anywhere of rust, worn carpets, or disrepair anywhere. Elevators were abundant for the most part, although very few went down to the fourth deck, another reason to dislike the original upgrade. Thanks isn't enough to express our gratitude to Natasha, who single-handedly did for us overnight, something NCL corporate couldn't do in ten months! She completely turned our dream voyage from a train-wreck to something magical !! Solely because of her, we will consider Norwegian for future cruises. Read Less

Our travel agent thought that NCL was a great deal due to all the excursions you got on the land portion of the trip. The land portion of our trip was very good and all excursions we did at the ports were top grade. Ship was clean and bathrooms were always clean. Food was good and tasty. The garden cafe, the main dining area, was always overcrowded and very hard to get a seat. The nighttime entertainment was entertaining. I was a little disappointed, because I think I expected Vegas Style entertainment, It seem to be a little cheesy, but ok. As far as the activities, there were very few. My husband and I got a lot of afternoon naps. The activities consisted of an art auction, very expensive jewelry pushed every day, all day.... a casino, and a hard push to buy future cruises. Since it was a Alaskan cruise and for some reason they only had outdoor pools and hot tubs, neither of these were an option. Everywhere you looked, people were huddled around tables , playing cards. Crew was rude and not helpful. The most aggravating thing was our balcony that we paid an additional $2000 for, was flooded by 2-3" of water from day 2 thru day 6. When we complained, they acted as if that was normal for balconies to be underwater. My husband tried to explain, because of the water and air temp, it made our balcony useless. All of a sudden, they could not understand English.... On day 5 of our cruise, 4 pcs of candy was delivered to our room for our inconvenience. That breaks down to $500 per piece of candy.!! I would not recommend Norwiegan Sun to anyone. Read Less

PROs All restaurants were well managed, hot food was hot, cold food was cold. Staff and management super attentive. Felt like royalty when dining. Food had great variety with many options available, all entrees were done to perfection. Very flexible timing and relaxed atmosphere. Book the premium dining early and look for cruise packages that include it. We dressed for the occasion and it made our dining a special event. Service in room and food areas was outstanding. Entertainment was adequate. Did a lot of research on ports and self booked. Saved money and precious time. CONs Soda package was a waste as it was barely available. Windows in dining areas dirty from the start. Bingo way over priced. Didn't like the fact that we had to walk through a smoke filled casino to access parts of the ship. Keep and carry your own luggage to disembark and it will save time and frustration. We would definitely do NCL again though. Special kudos to "Mother Theresa" in charge of food service and Oka our room steward. Read Less

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 and the Seven Seas for most meals. The service there was fabulous, but the food was not the par to what we have had on previous cruises. We expected fresh Seafood on our Alaskan Cruise and we had to go into the ports to get this. The weather and the Glacier Views along the way were amazing all 7 days. We enjoyed the entertainment there were 2 comedians that were especially funny. It was very interesting to have the naturalists from Glacier Bay naturalist come on board, and give us more information about the glaciers and wildlife in the area. Thank you for the experience Norwegian Sun. Read Less

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. This was our second NCL cruise, it was great but not as good as our first one, which was a Caribbean cruise. There wasn't much live music this time, dance classes all were late in the day so we didn't get to any of them. I guess it's hard since the 4 hour time difference for us east coasters. While most folks on board were lovely, there were a few staff that were very very rude. I'm talking to you, aft bar. What a terrible welcome, after flying all that way, paying all that money, to have our first "welcome aboard" cocktail to have bad energy. We quickly moved on and never went back for drinks when she was there. The great outdoors is a nice little buffet! Earlier in the week it was not as busy as the end of the week, but it never got crazy out there. The sports bar was fun, as was the atrium bar on 7. The coffee shop on 5 was also a frequent, several times a day, stop for us. Lovely people in all of those venues. We had purchased the 4 day restaurant in hopes of booking Tapenyaki in advance. That didn't work out, but we were able to book it on board for the first night, and twice later in the week. It was a lot of fun, but a lot of food, and we decided to change to Le Bistro and La Cucina. We didn't like La Cucina or the churiscaria, and wound up not making it to the restaurants 2 of the nights. We went to the dining room only for breakfast and lunch, and dinner on the last day. It was very good! I wouldn't purchase the restaurant plan in the future. We had a porthole on the 4th floor (#4002) right at the front of the ship. I had major reservations about not having a balcony, but this room was PERFECT! It is cold outside when the ship is moving. Sunrise/sunset is so late and so early, but wasn't an issue as the headboard of the bed was against the porthole. I suffered a few years ago on the Celebrity ship with the sun streaming in at 4am. Disembarkation at all of the ports forward on floor 3. It was just one floor down, right by our room. Easy, easy. Glacier Bay was beautiful! The entrance to the Sawyer glacier we saw a few years ago was very different than the entrance to Glacier Bay. The entrance to Sawyer was small, very close to the ship, and just a few hours, where Glacier Bay was bigger, and took all day and a couple of hours into the next day. One glacier after another, we saw mountain goats, whales, seals, and even a wolf from the ship. We enjoyed the gym. We brought swimsuits, but never used them. There is no "spa" pool or hot tub inside. There are two pools and 4 hot tubs that did get a lot of use. Kids swam when it was sunny, and the hot tubs were very popular. I put my toe into one of the pools to check, and it wasn't cold. It wasn't warm like our pool here in Florida this time of year, but certainly swimable. We booked an 11:40 flight home on Alaska Airlines on the last day of the cruise. NCL booked a transfer to the airport for us at 7am, said we'd be fine. I hadn't realized that it was a 3 hour drive to the airport from the port NCL uses as Anchorage, it's actually Seward. (There was what looked like a Princess ship from the air, in port right by the airport in Anchorage). I was a little nervous about catching the flight in time, and NCL called me mid cruise to tell me they couldn't guarantee we'd make it. I don't know why they did that, what could I do from the ship, a few days before debarking, anyway? Well, it was fine. The driver even stopped midway there for a 10 minute break, we were freaking out inside but kept a cool exterior. Anchorage is a small airport, and the NCL transfer company had it together. They shipped our luggage in a moving truck and had it organized and ready for us when we arrived. We had more than an hour to spare. The trip home was almost 24 hours including the bus ride, 3 flights, and a train at home. I only got 4 hours sleep on the 5 hour red eye flight. I wouldn't do this again. A stop on the way home when flying all the way from Anchorage, say Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles....would have been nice. Read Less

We wanted to go to Alaska and our travel agent recommended Norwegian. This was our first cruise and thought all cruises were like this. After talking to numerous other passengers who cruised on other cruise lines, Norwegian is unique in the constant selling if diamonds, emeralds, Pandora, watches, art, bingo, etc. We could not get off the ship at any port without being handed brochures to buy all of the above. Apparently Norwegian owns all of the stores featured in the brochures. Seminars on how to buy these gems were were actually on the list of activities to do aboard ship. On the other hand, the service was excellent. The staff truly treated us so well. It was nice to feel so important to them. My luggage was lost by Delta, West Jet, and Alaska Air for the first five days of our cruise and the service desk provided me with a bag of a few essentials and one free laundry service, they cared more than the airlines. I also had difficulty getting around and rented a scooter. It was charged every night and delivered immediately when I called in the morning. The service staff also made sure I had a wheelchair for embarkation and debarkation. I can't say enough about the wonderful staff. Read Less

My husband and I booked this cruise for our honeymoon and found a good deal on it through USAA. For a first time cruiser I found many things that I enjoyed and some that were not my favorite. Positives: -Very friendly staff -Sit down dinners were very good and had a variety of choices that changed each night -Variety of ages on the ship (not too many kids) -Cruise goers were also very friendly (if you are looking to chat with other people) -Excursions were GREAT! Very easy to get on and off the ship for trips. Buses were easily accessible and a free shuttle was available to and from the ship into the town at every port. -Very informative during glacier days -Room was always cleaned -Daily itinerary was easy to understand and follow Room for Improvement: -The hot tubs were never hot. Only lukewarm -Buffet was always the same (never enough veggies) -18% gratuity is put on EVERYTHING! Even for 1 drink. Adds up very very quickly -Everything costs more money (Bingo was $60!!, certain activities, photos) -Most things come with a sales pitch (the spa, gym, art auction, and events) -The day we got off the ship in Seward it was not clear where to go or how to get there. I did not know what to expect when we got off the ship and had luckily done extra research to figure out we had to take a 3 hour bus ride from Seward to the airport. - Bathroom was a ship bathroom not a hotel bathroom Read Less

Cruise Ship: Norwegian Sun Cruise date: June 12, 2017 to June 19, 2017 Embarkation: Seward, Alaska Debarkation: Vancouver, Canada Ports: Icy Straight Point, Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan We made this trip with 13 family members, age range 5 to 58, the trip of a life time! Just wish the experience on the ship would have been better. Cabin: Bathrooms were small, but the cabin was a good size and very comfortable. Plenty of closet space. Exceeded expectations. Dining & Entertainment: By far, the biggest disappointment was the entertainment, or lack thereof. The place was a ghost ship after 9:00 p.m., we ended up in the sports bar most of the time taking advantage of the unlimited beverage package! One night, we went looking for some excitement in the Observation lounge where a Latin duo was playing. There were 10 people in a lounge that holds a couple hundred at least. I think the duo was disappointed to see us leave after 30 minutes, we were the only excitement. The quality of entertainment was average, house band was good, but the genre was geared towards the older generation. The ship is poorly promoted and signed, we stumbled on to the sports bar and karaoke lounge only after getting lost looking for the observation lounge. And trying to locate the Seven Seas main dining room required a map. The restaurant is located on the same deck as the atrium, but it required two separate elevators and several corridors to get there. Up to 6, through two lounges, and down again to 5. The buffet had limited indoor seating and the serving line is disorganized, very crowded, and congested. There was a buffet station out on the rear deck and plenty of outdoor seating if you wanted to brave the elements. And the wait staff in the restaurants was rude, maybe they had been on the ship to long? Quality of the food was average, imitation eggs at breakfast undercooked and runny, bacon undercooked, best part of the buffet, the ice cream. Biggest complaint: Most annoying, was the constant sales pitches. You are hit from all angles, TV, public address, and staff. I wish they would have put as much effort into the entertainment as they did with sales! Tips: Take the train ride from Anchorage to Seward, beautiful! If Norwegian did one thing right, it was the check-in at the train station. They handle all of your check-on bags and process your boarding right there. All we had to do was enjoy the four hour train ride and board the ship when we arrived. Alaska was all we expected and more, but we would choose a different cruise line if we ever decided to do it again. If you are looking for transportation between ports, then Norwegian does that, but if you want excitement and entertainment between ports, choose another cruise line. It was a year of planning and saving for this trip, this was the first cruise for several in our group. Norwegian set a low bar, hopefully they were not turned off by the experience. On the positive side, our cabin steward was excellent. Read Less

We have always wanted to see Alaska and this was a great way to do it. We had great weather, better than even we had hoped for, so it did add to the experience. This is 5th cruise and 3rd on NCL. We had a balcony, cannot imagine this trip without one. NCL does a great job of maximizing storage and shelves, we had plenty of room for our clothes and other items, even the bathroom. We enjoyed the freestyle dining, Le Bistro by far the best menu and atmosphere, the other special dining rooms are nothing special, just regular rooms used for other things. Felt special at Le Bistro. Captain was great with patience and maneuvering when we were at the glaciers, this was a beautiful sight and staff waited out the fog and clouds. Service overall was excellent. Food in Seven Seas was a little more average than we have experienced on past cruises. Tip for Skagway, if docked at the ore dock take smart bus back, long walk to ship. Read Less

It was a fully Diamond points funded cruise to a destination we wanted to see. Alaska is an outstanding destination. The excursions were excellent. On board we were treated like royalty and had lovely, comfortable, clean accommodations. The food, both variety and quality, were very good. One improvement from my perspective is if the buffet had a featured cuisine from different cultures every day, i.e. Greek, Italian, Asian, etc. for the dinner or lunch menus. I recognize that this may not please all passengers. The performances by the NCL singers and dancers were lively, entertaining and enjoyable. The lounge music especially Black Diamonds was so professionally done and so very enjoyable. Innovation was another group that we found very entertaining. To elaborate on excursions: we thoroughly enjoyed all that we booked. The two really outstanding ones were the Whale Watching and Wildlife in Juneau and in Skagway, the Best of White Pass that included Liarsville and Red Onion. Seward has little to offer of interest. but this is a debarkation, embarkation point. Vancouver is a wonderful, clean city and I wish had more time to see it. The Hop On, Hop Off Trolley was a good investment. While most of the ports of call were the same Vancouver to Seward and Seward to Vancouver, Icy Pointe was only on the return and well worth the stop. We are glad we did the round trip because it is impossible to see all you want to see in just one go round. And weather can be a factor. On the way to Seward, Hubbard Glacier was so fogged in, we could not see it. On the way back, we had a wonderful viewing day and the ship was able to get closer to the glacier than any time all summer we were told by the crew. Alaska is a definite 5 thumbs up. Read Less

We chose Norwegian because of the limited choices of ships going our direction in our time limit in Alaska, offer of premium food/drink package, and opportunity for excursions. However, we will NEVER RECOMMEND THEM AS A VACATION CRUISE LINE! 1. The Ports of call Itinerary changed 3 weeks in advance. We found out via another company. We called Norwegian to confirm, and they lied to us. They did not acknowledge it until the DAY OF THE CRUISE. (Luckily we trusted the excursion company, we knew going in). 2. Entertainment- If you are looking to have fun, this is not the boat for you. We did not have Rock Climbing, or put put, or even a hot tub inside (ahhh ALASKA WHY IS THE POOL OUTSIDE?). Even the bars/food buffet/snacks would close early. We had no musicals, no big shows, no plays 3. Getting on and off the boat-It was fine for us, but I heard many elderly complaining about the stairs or the ramp. We had to pay for water bottles getting on/off shore (although they gave us "clean hands" haha washy washy"). 4. Accommodations- I have allergies. They did not take it seriously. I have serious allergies where I can be hospitalized for 2 of the many I have. I actually had a Maitre'D question me about the severity of my allergies and if I can just take medicine. If it wasn't for 2 staff members on board, I probably would've jumped off board. They have a limited menu (even my boyfriend who DOES NOT have allergies hated the food). Bar food was not offered 24/7 (difficult to find in a rush) and the food was terrible. I am pretty sure I lost weight. We also did not like some specialty coffee/non-alcoholic drinks were not on the drink package (ah why is a water bottle cheaper on shore in Alaska than on our boat?) 5. Our room- Yes, we did not pay the expensive pricey room. This was my first cruise and felt I wanted to see what it is all about. My boyfriend has been cruising since he was 12, and he thought the same for my first experience. However, they treated us like the staff. We literally had staff members staying on our floor. We heard them late at night talking, screaming, shouting, partying. Our room was always dirty, stain on my sheets never gone, rock in the room, etc. I kept saying "let's pay more next time." However, that should not be the case. They should take all guests seriously. If it wasn't for us pre-booking excursions with another company (which is the ONLY THING I enjoyed), I would've jumped ship. Honestly, this is the worst ship (my boyfriend and his family asked me not to judge my first experience on this rotten ship). Thank you for reading this. I am marking 10 cruises because of my boyfriend. We are writing this together. I feel it will get more reads if you see that he has been on plenty. Read Less

My husband and I took this cruise to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. This was the first time we have cruised with Norwegian. Let me first say the cruise was good and we had a great time. We are not big drinkers so we were looking for great food and good excursions. We got a deal when we booked the cruise that we could get 4 of the specialty dining rooms for free. I was happy about that, because I think we would have been disappointed if we hadn't gone to the specialty restaurants. The food in the dining room was good, just not extra special. The buffet was always the same and very crowded. We had wonderful weather! There were a couple of days we didn't have to wear a jacket. Being from Florida we weren't sure what to expect. Like the reviews say, pack layers so you can take them off as needed. I wore long sleeve shirts under sweatshirts and took a jacket. I read a lot of reviews prior to going on this trip on how Norwegian nickel and dimes you. I found this to be true, but never felt pressured in any way. For example, every other cruise we have been on had a night in the dining room where they serve lobster. With Norwegian, you could have lobster in the dining room every night, for an additional charge of $24.95 per person. Before each show they sell lottery and raffle tickets. You can order anything you want from room service, but there will be a $7.95 charge. If you don't like it, don't get it. The shows were good. There was karaoke, dance lessons, trivia, bingo, lots of activities. We would have liked to take the behind the scenes tour, but it was an addition $79.00 a person so we opted not to. They had first run movies playing in the cabins each day, so if you wanted to stay in and watch them you could. We have been on cruises in the past where there was always something to do, and there really wasn't much on this one that we were interested in. We spent a lot of time on the balcony admiring the scenery. Norwegian was great about being sure they were germ free. They had crew members at the entrance of buffet offering hand sanitizer, as well as throughout the ship. They ship was small and older, but we expected that from the reviews we read before booking the cruise. It was clean and the staff were super nice. We left out of Vancouver and stayed at the Sunset Inn & Suites. It was a really nice hotel and very convenient. We took a cab from the airport and it was very reasonable. We rode the hop on/hop off bus to see Vancouver and the hotel sold the tickets at the front desk, as well as had a stop within walking distance to get on the bus. The rooms were big and they provide a free continental breakfast each morning. In Ketchikan we went salmon fishing. The bus picked us up and took us out to the marina. We were on a boat with three other people from the ship. The water was very choppy and a person got sick, so the captain moved us to calmer water. Between the 5 of us we caught a salmon that was too small to keep, a rock fish and a 13 lb salmon. We saw a lot of bald eagles and the scenery was beautiful. The captain (Kevin) was not real personable, but he warmed up to us. In Juneau we went whale watching. What a wonderful trip! We saw stellar sea lions, a couple of pods of humpback whales, and a couple of pods of orca. The boat was really close to them and we got great pictures. The boat had indoor and outdoor seating and the guides were local and very informative. There is a free shuttle from the cruise ship to downtown which we were not aware of. We didn't venture off the ship until our tour was scheduled at 2pm. The town is a little bit of a distance from where the ship docks. In Skagway we did the dogsled tour. So fun! The bus took us to the camp and the tour guide was full of good information about the city and dog sled racing. He actually has his own dogs and wants to run in the Iditarod. They had a 16 dog team ready to go and they pulled us in a cart that held 6 people. After that we got to play with the puppies, and there were plenty of them. Once again, there is a free shuttle to take you back and forth between town and the ship. The glaciers were breathtaking! Norwegian arranged for rangers to be on our boat while viewing the glaciers. There were 4 of them and they narrated interesting facts while going by the glaciers as well as being on deck to answers questions. We picked them up and dropped them off as we entered the park. While on the boat we saw whales, seals, stellar sea lions, lots of birds, and porpoises. We would see them while in the pool area, or while eating in the dining room. Other guests were really great about pointing them out. We also saw plenty from the balcony. Sometimes it was too cold to be on the balcony with the wind blowing but we could very easily watch from inside the cabin. We went an additional 3 days on the land tour after getting off the boat. The buses were there to pick us right at boat as we exited in Seward. The first day we went to a conservation area where you could see injured/recovering animals very close up. They even had a reindeer they were walking through the visitors that you could pet. There were moose, bear, porcupines, wolves, caribou, etc. Really interesting and great pictures. From there we went to Anchorage and had lunch on our own, then the bus dropped you at the hotel about 5pm so you had the evening to yourself. We stayed at the Lakefront Inn on Lake Hood. It was really pretty. It has a restaurant and a bar on premises, as well as some within walking distance. They also have a courtesy van that will take you to downtown Anchorage and the Airport. The next morning we were up bright and early and back on the buses head to Denali. It was a 4 hour ride up to Denali and then we boarded converted school buses for a tour of the park. You could upgrade your tour for an additional $70 a person to go further into the park and have a better chance of seeing the mountain and wildlife. We did this and the tour was 8-9 hours. It was a long day, but this is probably the only time we will see Alaska. We saw bear, moose, caribou, golden eagles, dall sheep. Be sure to take binoculars with you and a camera. Afterwards the bus dropped us off at the hotels in Denali about 9pm. The last day of the land tour we woke up and rode the bus to the train station. We boarded the Alaska railroad and took the train to Talkeetna. There was an option to eat in the dining car (at your own expense) for lunch, or there was a snack bar that had food as well. Of course, every where you looked was gorgeous. The buses picked us up and drove us the rest of the way to Anchorage back to the hotel. We arrived back about 7pm and you had the rest of the night to yourself. The land tour was wonderful and I would highly recommend this. However, it was very busy! We saw a TON of things in this 2 weeks though. Definitely hit the highlights. You were responsible for all the meals during the land tour, it's not like the cruise where this is included in your fare. I also went down to the desk while on the cruise to find out what to expect on the land tour. Norwegian didn't give us a lot of information on this. For example, we stayed a couple of extra days in Anchorage and it would have been nice to know which hotel Norwegian was sending us to so we could have continued our stay at the same place. We stayed in Anchorage two days on our own and The Lakefront was able to accommodate us one of those days. We went into Anchorage and caught the Trolley tour. It was $20 a person and very interesting. They also gave us a coupon book for other stores/tours in Anchorage. The guide grew up in Anchorage and had a lot of information. The last day we booked a fishing trip with Regal Air. They picked us up at the hotel at 7am and we took a seaplane out to Lake Creek Lodge. They fed us a hot breakfast and set us up with a guide that took us out. It was rainy, (the first rain we encountered on our tours) and we didn't catch anything. We went in for lunch which was really good, then back out to the boat. We caught a 33 lb king salmon which they cleaned and packaged up for us. Regal came back to get us at 5pm. We left our fish in a storage cooler with Regal where the Alaska Sausage company came and picked it up the next day and we made arrangements for them to ship it home to Florida. We saw lots of wildlife from the sea plane and the pilots were very informative and great about pointing out critters. Our guide at Lake Creek was Brian and he was an absolute delight. I know this review was lengthy, but I had so many questions before we left. I hope this answers some of yours. It was a wonderful vacation, we loved it. Read Less

We booked the 12 day Denali Rail explorer. The cruise part of our trip was great. We picked up the ship in Vancouver and disembarked in Seward Alaska. The ship was small but offered up everything you would need. Nightly entertainment was good, also had a casino on board. The ports we stopped in all had something to offer. Great choices of excursions. NCL subcontracts the land part of the trip to another organization. The rail part was not up to the standards I expected. First of all, Monday 6/6 disembarkation was very disorganized. We never received actual tickets for the train either. We were met by someone on the pier and she seemed a bit unorganized. The train ride was nice and the hotel in Anchorage was nice. Tuesday we took the bus to Talkeetna to pick up the train, which was late and we sat at the station waiting. Which put us in Denali later than anticipated. Our bags were not delivered to our room and we only had about 30 minutes before we had to meet for our excursion. Needless to say that this made me a bit uncomfortable, and I needed stuff that was in my suitcase for the excursion. We were told me would definitely have enough time when we arrived at hotel, not the case because of the late train. Tuesday evening we were informed by our tour director about a shuttle that would bring us from the village to our hotel. the last shuttle was at 11:30, when the driver arrived he was very surprised as he doesn't normally run that late this early in the season. Wednesday at Denali was a good day, but our arrival to Fairbanks left a little to be desired. Once again our luggage was misplaced and the motel that we were put up in was unacceptable by my standards. I did not pay the money that we did to camp and that's exactly what the lodging felt like. We were put in a cabin that adjoined to another apt, where we could hear everything that neighbors did. When they opened their door the in between door rattled. The bathroom light was on a timer and the heat didn't work very well. We did finally receive our luggage and an apology, but this was undo stress that wasn't necessary. The staff at the River's Edge was not knowledgeable or helpful and seemed to have a bit of an attitude. I'm thankful that this terrible motel was at the end of our trip and not the beginning. I would hope that you contract with a better company in the future as this is a reflection on NCL. Read Less

I have just returned from a 7 night Alaska Inside Passage cruise (May 16 – May 23, 2016) on the Norwegian Sun. Alaska is so incredibly beautiful and awesome that you must see it to fully grasp the majesty of it. However, if you visit Alaska, avoid Norwegian Cruise Lines and their ship, the Norwegian Sun. I experienced the worst service ever from any cruise ship. It is an understatement to say that Norwegian Cruise Lines failed to meet my expectations and failed to meet the experience that I had purchased. Summary list of problems experienced on the Norwegian Sun: - Serious maintenance issues with plumbing and non-flushing toilets; - Odor of sewage in the port aft section of the ship; - Air conditioning and heating not functioning properly to heat and cool cabins; - Ship seems to be understaffed to support all the passengers; - Service was horrible ship-wide; - Poor attitude and rudeness by the ship’s crew toward the passengers; - Long wait times for food service and for service between course servings; - Few menus changes for each of the restaurants, dining rooms, and buffet; - Various dining options and the buffet opens and closes at strange hours and change daily with room service as the only food option during portions of the day; - Room service orders were never correct; - Entertainment and ship activities were mediocre. “Quality Customer Service” is a term that does not exist for the crew of the Norwegian Sun. This attitude exists from the senior officer in charge of “Hotel Services including Food Services” down to the stateroom stewardess. The ship has numerous maintenance issues including plumbing problems and heating and air conditioning problems. We had a loss of water in our cabin bathroom for a portion of one day. There was no flushing toilets in a portion of the ship for several days. A crew member stated that it was a system-wide problem. A sewage odor permeated the port aft section of the ship for the last 4 days of the cruise. We also had heating and cooling system problems in our cabin. We could never properly cool or heat the cabin. And we were awakened at 4:30 am one morning with the captain calling a “Code Blue” fire alert. We were later told that smoke had been reported on the ship and traced to a fire from an air conditioning belt. In summary, visit and cruise Alaska. But not on the Norwegian Sun. The ship has too many maintenance and service issues that made for a very frustrating and disappointing cruise. Read Less

This was an amazing cruise, the places were fantastic the scenery was the best I have seen .....the places they went to ... Juneau , Ketchikan, skagway and the glaciers were fantastic and being able to lie in bed and watch the mountains going by was like a dream ... This ship was great we had a balcony and it was a great size with more storage than you could ask for, the food was great always was able to get a seat, we found the staff was great the ship was clean, the only problem if I have to say one is that there was not enough bar staff, but I think this is because they don't want you to drink to much ... Lol we loved this cruise and I think that it was because it was a smaller ship and everything was within walking distance ( as such) .... Defiantly would go again on this ship !!!! Read Less

Firstly, may I say that my wife and I really enjoyed our recent cruise on this vessel as the entertainment was excellent, the range of activities first class and the cabins were clean and comfortable. Also, the range and quality of the food was good and the customer care of the staff was also excellent. In addition, the range of ports and sights on the itinerary was spot on. And, it was so nice to feel comfortable when casually dressed on board a cruise. How can you be dissatisfied then you might ask? Well it soon became apparent that the customer care policy was geared solely to viewing the customer as a cash cow. We were bombarded every day with things to buy and places to spend money and the prices were extortionate. There were raffle tickets, additional restaurants, expensive drinks, photographs, spa treatments, paid classes and a whole range of gifts, souvenirs and other shopping paraphernalia supported by promotions galore! Also, there were the ludicrously expensive tours, on sale needless to say and heavily publicised in many ways throughout this cruise. Moreover, all the staff had targets and so they were all looking for cash cow' to enable them to meet these targets and then there was the double whammy of eighteen per cent tax and gratuities to be added to most of their services. Without much effort you could run up a seriously expensive bill and that is after paying out for the cruise itself! It may be said that the above is true of all cruises and that is why my wife and I do not really wish to be a part of what is a captive audience held to ransom again! Read Less

We are 60 and 58 and coming from the Caribbean we did had some concern for the weather .Overall this was a very good trip. Getting on board was a fairly quick without much delay. We had an ocean view room on the 6th floor , a little difficult to find due to location access from 7th floor. By day 3 we had figured it out. This was our first NCL cruise and going by some reviews we read it was not the best .However we didn't find much wrong. The ship is in good shape for it age, no bells or whistles but the crew the best we had so far. Alvito Luiz form India and Princess from the Philippines and Keista from St Lucia was the best dining staff who take care of our needs. Mr Walters Hotel director is a great NCL asset The weather didn't started out the best as rain greeted our 3 pm arrival in Juneau but we still got a good view of the Mendenhall glacier. In Skagway we did start out with rain but we took the scenic Yukon drive and the weather improved a lot once cross the border. The driver gave an excellent commentary stopping to show any wildlife like goats. However Glacier bay had very good weather. The Captain said it was the best for some time. What marvel to see the glaciers up close. In Ketchikan we did the Misty Fjords boat trip , again another marvel of nature. We did Cagney but was not impressed with the meal but did find enough in the MDR that fits out taste. We didn't take part in any activities but enjoy the Jersey Boys show. Now that we have tried NCL we would do so again hoping to return to Alaska one more time time. Read Less

This cruise was my husband's retirement gift to us. We had always wanted to see Alaska and thought this would be a great way to do it so we booked our trip on the Norwegian Sun. The whole process of checking in and getting settled into our cabin was easy and organized. Our cabin steward Asep couldn't have take better care of us! The crew worked together like the proverbial well oiled machine. Every member of the crew that we encountered was so nice took and such good care of us and and were so friendly, always smiling. The food of course was the best! Whether you had your meals in either of the main dining rooms, the buffets , or one of the specialty restaurants, all of the food was prepared so well and was so delicious.... definitely 5 star dining ! The variety of shore excursions was wonderful. My husband and I are outdoors people and there was something for anyone and everyone to do whether you chose to walk around each port exploring the town, going on a tour of a native cultural center and village, seeing a lumberjack show, taking a train ride, hiking up to a glacier, fishing, or whale watching. On days when we were at sea , there were several activities for everyone to participate in from children to those of us a little bit older. Everything we did, gave us such wonderful memories! We started our cruise in Vancouver BC and our ports of call were Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, the Hubbard Glacier, Glacier Bay, and ended our cruise in Seward and in each port, the people treated us like friends. We decided to take the scenic route to Anchorage aboard the Alaskan Railroad. We saw a moose and a few baluga whales along the way and our train tour guide made the 4 1/2 hour trip an extra delight! The train brought us right into the airport.and since our flight home wasn't until the next morning, we had the opportunity to walk around the airport to find out where we needed to check in for our flight. This was a trip to remember for both my husband and myself and it was hard to leave. While we love each memento that we bought along the way, it's the people we met and the memories we made along the way that we'll always cherish. We encourage everyobe to " travel like a Norwegian" to Alaska, it's a trip you'll never forget. Read Less

Just returned from an incredible cruise. My wife and I are in our 40's and we loved the Northbound cruise on the Sun. We both compared our notes and I'm sharing them with you now. Hope this helps with your cruise planning. What we liked: - Everyone on the ship was friendly and polite. People were going out of their way to make sure you enjoyed your vacation. They were hospitable and responded well to requests (in general). - We liked the different ports: Ketchikan, Skagway, Juneau. We are the type of travelers where we get a cheaper room but splurge on excursions. And we there are a ton of different and awesome excursions: like flying in a helicopter and landing on a glacier on top of a mountain then riding a sled pulled by dogs -OR- flying through the mountains and landing in a quiet bay, standing on the airplane pontoon. Great stuff! - We had an issue with an excursion (which we booked through NCL- which I recommend). Our one excursion ran 60 minutes late and we would've missed our second excursion if it weren't for the helpful people at the excursions desk. Thanks again!! - Best cabin steward I have ever had on a cruise (my wife agreed too!) - we've taken about 20-25 cruises together. - Ship was small - so getting around is easy. You might be waiting a bit at busy times for elevators to higher levels. 11th is lunch. Dinner levels depended on where you were eating. - Great selection of alcoholic drinks on the ultimate beverage package - this saved me a ton of money. - Comedian, El Goucho and Australian Dance/Singing was great. - Gym looked good. I didn't work out. They need a "real" pull-up bar though (my wife tells me). What needs improvement: - The food. Overall, it was not great. It was mediocre. For example, on Shrimp and Filet night, the filet was ordered medium, it was well done (on both mine and my wife's). The shrimp was overcooked too. The plates in general were luke warm on average (with every meal). The butter was chilled and not room temperature, so spreading it on room temperature bread (rather than heated rolls/bread) was a challenge too. The dessert options were less impress still. - No good option for simple food at 10:00 pm - 2:oo am. Ok. I'm gluttonous and I like chocolate chip cookies and a slice of pizza at midnight - but you will not find this on the ship at this time. The hours and availability of food was goofy. - Don't charge for Room Service ($7.95) - you kidding me? Other cruise lines do NOT charge. That's a good thing. PLEASE consider changing this. On a past trip, I got sick and if I needed to pay a room delivery charge on top of being stuck in my room on vacation, I would be REALLY upset. Not cool. - We chose the ultimate unlimited drink package and thank goodness. BUT, the drinks were inconsistently made (some had too little or no liquor and others were like doing shots). Also, trying to get someone to take your order and deliver your drink order could have been faster. Overall, the inconsistency was the bigger of the problems. - Having a scavenger hunt on the last night not a great idea...better for higher energy level at the beginning of the cruise! - Offer better gifts to draw more people to participate in fun and embarrassing competitions. - Singing duet couple - we did not care for them. - Dancing at the club at night was hindered because there was no enforcement to the age limit. So we're dancing next to 12 year olds. I like kids but on vacation with just my wife, we are trying to avoid little ones, especially later at night. Same rules apply for the hot tub. - Sitting in a hot tub is relaxing (normally). Sitting in a hot tub with kids splashing you in the face and messing up you drinks is not. There should be a strict rule and enforcement of NO KIDS in hot tubs ... EVER. ...well, until they are 21. - Spa people were always trying to sell us stuff, even in my massage. Not cool! Also, got shortchanged by 5 minutes. Not cool either! Especially for what we pay for those massages. With all said and done, the entertainment was great, the staff were incredible, Richard was a great host, great performers, great stops, mediocre food, small ship. Read Less

Our cruise this past week on the Norwegian Sun was perfect! All the staff that we encountered went out of their way to please and were always smiling and friendly! We had spectacular weather and were fortunate to be able to sail the inside Inside Passage!! Captain Ronny Borg and his crew went out of their way to make this cruise so special! (At the Q & A with the Captain and the Hotel Director, Captain Ronny even said he contacted head office to get permission to sail this special route after he had been in contact with the Disney ship ahead of us who told him that the fog had lifted in this area and it was safe to go this way) The food in the main dining rooms was delicious and presented beautifully! No need to pay for specialty dining for us!! The entertainment around the ship was also wonderful and there was indeed something for every musical taste. The comedian Bud Andersen was great and so personable when he also participated in a Q & A session. We loved the cruise director's staff and enjoyed watching the special events that they put on. The Dancing with the Norwegian Stars was a favourite! The ship is in great shape in our opinion and so easy to get around. We love the size and saw the same people over and over all week. We travel as a couple but made some friends by sharing dining which we really enjoyed! Our ocean view cabin was very nice and had lots of storage and was easy to keep organized. Our cabin steward David did a terrific job of straightening up and making cute towel animals for us! We enjoyed two cocktail parties as we are repeat NCL cruisers. All in all it was a wonderful week and we will sail NCL again!! Read Less

My wife and I were one of four couples wanting to cruise to Alaska. Norwegian offered the dates and itinerary desired. Two couples were first timers so they had experience for comparison. Free-style dining is a plus with flexible tables and time. Cabin size and storage was good for all but one couple who did not have quite as large a room as the rest of us. Three of the four had room for a sofa. The crew was friendly from the cabin steward to the "Washi, washi" to waiters to the managing staff. Everyone was approachable! The food quality was good, only the apple pie was lacking. The entertainment was outstanding. We only went to the family shows. The ports of call and length of cruise were the biggest reason chose the Sun but the ship turned out to be a pleasant surprise. The ship was very clean and the maintenance crew were cleaning and painting the outside at every port as well as doing necessary maintenance while under way. A tile became cracked in the buffet so they roped off the area and repacked it in less than an hour. ports of call Ketchikan - Creek Street and Lumberjack show Juneau - Mendenhall glacier (great waterfall) Skagway - White Pass RR. We took the 20 mile trip Glacier Bay - saw bear and wolf Hubbard glacier - MASSIVE! Saw young humpback whales near Ketchikan! Read Less

This was our first cruise and we did not know what to expect. I packed too many 'fancy' clothes and not enough casual. I loved the fact that you could dress up or down as you pleased. We mostly ate in the buffet as we liked the choices but the two main dining rooms that are inclusive, the Four Seasons and the Seven Seas are excellent as well and it was fun to dress up and sit down in style! The service in all food areas was outstanding as was the night club and bar service, especially in our favourite...the sports bar! I loved the fact that no matter where I went, they knew my drink off by heart! I tip for THAT kind of service! I felt treated like gold (which is hilarious since we were going to Alaska). I cannot say enough good things about the staff and crew on the Norwegian Sun. I have NEVER received this level of good heartedness, lovely smiles and good wishes and darn good service in EVERY WAY! EVER! The food was plentiful, delicious and different at every meal. We loved the choices. The food and beverage Director, Vezna, was outstanding. I saw her each day overseeing and watching her operations and pitching in, in full uniform to wipe the floor or pick up something off the floor if it fell off a tray, rearranging the roast potatoes to make them look more appealing and talking and laughing with her crew, even as she schooled them when they made a mistake and the sign said 'lamb of leg'. She was so wonderful to them and did not chastise them meanly but was so very gentle and wonderful in letting them know about language differences and when you see a manager on a giant ship with this kindness and professionalism you know you chose the right cruise line! Sure, perhaps it's not the 'fanciest' ship out there (not that I would know) and some people complained about the 'dated' artwork in the buffet...so what? It was a pleasant, super clean, pretty and sunny space in the buffet, the restaurants were very lovely as well. The bars comfortable and relaxing to sit in. Our cabin was great. I upgraded to an outside with a porthole, which was BIG. I am so glad I did. We were just above the water and it was exciting to look out and see what was happening. Never get an inside cabin if you can help it. It's worth the extra expense and when I upgraded they gave me a free drink package which was worth its weight in gold, but, hey, I like to drink so I got my money's worth! Our cabin steward, Albondo, was exceptional. We would put our ‘make up cabin’ sign up sometimes twice in one day and when we came back each time…perfect made up bed and tidy counters (he even tidied up my rock collection). Pool area was so nice too. 4 hot tubs and two pools, one cold and one warm so no kids went into the cold one…heeee….gotta love THAT! Lovely big beach towels to use too. Spa services rock! I had a head to toe special TWICE and it was awesome. I fell asleep in the spa each time it was so relaxing. Entertainment was very enjoyable, comics, dancing and singing, game shows, casino, bar acts and singers everywhere…something for everyone. You won’t find famous stars onboard performing but that is not what you should expect. It’s fun, it’s free and you have many choices! They even have a library on board. Boarding and offboarding was super fast and easy in every port and at the beginning and end of the cruise. Customs was a breeze as well. Alaska has always been my dream and this cruise made my dream come true with so many extras I could never have imagined. Do yourself a huge favour and get an outside cabin on deck 4 and live a little! ALSO, the cabins were perfectly quiet. Never heard anything once we were inside. Loved this experience so much more than I realized or thought I would or could. RATING: Highest ever!! Read Less

I flew into Anchorage 2 days early to sightsee. I then traveled to Seward via bus from Anchorage to embark on the Sun. I did back to back cruises for 14 nights. I loved Alaska and it was a once in my lifetime trip. I did not like the food. The first week I had port credits and the second week I had specialty dining. I did not like the specialty dining restaurants , the food just was not good. The meat and fish were always over cooked and flavorless. The dining room hostesses were great. Not giving me a hard time about dining solo. The ship was overrun with unsupervised kids day and night. Kids having meltdowns were a standard. I had a balcony for the first week and ocean view the second week. Alaska is beautiful and interesting and I enjoyed the glaciers. The first week was cold, wet and rainy. 50-60's first week. 67 the second week, some rain. Read Less
