Alaska in October

Review for Norwegian Encore to Alaska

Cruising to Alaska in October was a new experience for my wife and I, so I thought I would share some of our experiences aboard the NCL Encore during the October 2 sailing. This was our 6th Alaska cruise with 4 of them on NCL (Jewel, Pearl, Bliss and now Encore). Voyage: The seas were a bit rough on the first Sea Day and the final Sea Day, mainly due to wind. We were told at Icy Point Strait ...

Food Unless you purchase a beverage plan, complimentary drink options are water or hot tea, and juices at a few places. Unless you're going to have 2-3 cocktails (around $10-17 each) a day, the beverage plan is a waste of money. The soda only (no booze) plan is around $9/day. Instead, bring a dozen sodas on board with you. When you're in Ketchikan, go to the drugstore (very close to the dock) ...

My wife and I didn't choose this Alaskan cruise initially. We were scheduled to sail the California Coastal Cruise from Seattle on Sept 25th. We received a call from our Princess rep. regarding our cruise being cancelled, and was offered the Alaskan 7 day cruise leaving on Sept 26, 2021. Our rep. gave us a mid ship balcony (we were originally near the stern) for the same price, which was almost a ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

I was skeptical of taking a cruise, but after reading about the specific Alaskan destinations I was convinced this would be a once and a lifetime trip. I was right about that, but not in the way I was expecting. From the start, the trip started off on the wrong foot. Upon check-in we were handed a letter saying that due to weather we would be starting a day late and skipping one of the stops. A ...

Alaska isn't my cup of tea but NCL onboard experience was great

I never had much desire to go to Alaska because I'm not into wildlife viewing or outdoorsy activities. However, I was itching to get back to cruising after 18 months at home and I got a decent deal on this Alaska cruise leaving Seattle 9/25. NCL did a fantastic job with Covid testing, embarkation and disembarkation. All were well organized and efficient. The Encore is lovely but my solo balcony ...

Outstanding Cruise on NCL Encore

We just returned from a terrific cruise on the Encore. We have taken many cruises on NCL but really felt that the Encore has raised the bar. It certainly helped that capacity on board was reduced to 2200 passengers with no young children. The passenger to crew ration was close to 1:1 which made for outstanding service. There were never any lines at the buffet or crowding anywhere. There was ...

Ketchikan port

Shocked to pull into port with raw sewage being dumped into the dock area that is also the local junkyard! To make matters worse it's half hour from town! There is a 30 year lease on this port from NCL. Holland America docks in town just steps from Creek St. Other shops as large as ours also dock in town. The EPA will be made aware of this pollution going on in Ketchikan and I urge NCL to ...

Just got off a last minute Alaska cruise on Ovation of the Seas. It was fantastic. Only 1342 guests on a ship that holds up to 4800.  We got lucky with incredibly good weather for this time of year in Alaska.  It was rainy and windy the weeks before and a big storm is coming in this next weekend. The boat felt perfect for the number of guests.  There were 1300 crew, only 200 less than when the ...
