Repositioning of the ship allowed us to have a variety of stops in different countries. Itinerary was exciting with amazing vistas. The port stops in Japan were fascinating and combined with Russia as a memorable experience made us salivate at seeing the beauty of Alaska. Alaska speaks for itself from high glacial mountains to tree lined shores encircled by deep glacial waters. The ...

A cruise to Alaska was on our bucket list. We celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary. Scenery was FANTASTIC. Our best excursion was a catamaran to Dawes Glacier by Allen Marine - a priceless experience. The food was sub par - at best. Buffet from purgatory. One day they served MEAT LOAF at the carving station! You can't make this up. The menu was SFDD - Same Food/Different Day. The other ...

We chose this cruise for a couple of reasons: our two oldest children, who accompanied us, had requested Alaska, and my parents wanted a return trip to Alaska for their 55th wedding anniversary. We liked the 9-day itinerary as opposed to the typical 7-day trip, and we had a couple of Norwegian deposits saved up. We flew to Seattle two nights before the cruise and enjoyed a full day of ...

On ( May 21 st) we traveled on Norwegian Cruise lines ( the Jewel) on an Alaska tour. The scenery of the enviroment throughout the tour was simply breathtaking. The food on the ship at the main dining room was what, we considered to be average or rather more like cafeteria style fast food, nothing to really rave about quality wise. On several ocasions the corn on the cobs were completely dried ...

My wife and I began our marriage 38 years ago in Alaska and decided to finally book a trip back. We took our 2 daughters, one who was born in Kodiak. All were very excited and anxious for what we hoped would be a trip filled with recollections and new images. Embarkation was a disaster taking well over 2 hours with management alluding that it was us passengers who arrived later than their ...

We selected this cruise because it had some less common stops - Sitka, Victoria, and Hoonah. The stops were all amazing, and I was especially impressed with Sitka and Hoonah (Icy Point). The weather was pretty cold, not unexpected for Alaska in May, so not much time was spent on deck. The food on this trip was very disappointing. There were never available tables at the buffet and the ...

We were on the 5/26 to 6/4/2018 Alaska cruise on the NCL JEWEL that cruised to a port we have never been to before, the Icy Strait Point, and to the Sitka port that we visited over 20 years ago. The crew were wonderful to us. Dorothy , Evelyn , Sambas and Jayson are the waitresses and waiters that we had most often at the Tsar dining room. Appreciate them very much. One day, Jayson saw me ...

My husband and I flew into Seattle two nights before departing Seattle on the NCL Jewel for a 10-night Alaskan cruise to celebrate our anniversary and my birthday. We packed 3 medium size suitcases and one large suitcase anticipating really cold temps in Alaska with layering clothes and warm winter boots. We did the 10-hour tour by Northwest which included a tour to the Boeing Airplane Factory. ...

The 10 day Alaskan Cruise was beyond my expectations. I've been on other cruise lines and enjoyed them but Norwegian out did them all with great attendants. We saw the restaurant and buffet crew assisting people with food and drinks. The ratio of clients to crew was a little more than 2 to 1. The scenery and silence of Alaska was so restful and peaceful. We purchased the thermal spa package ...
