I am so unimpressed with this entire cruise. Docked at Ward Cove, a tourist shop barn 25 mi. from Ketchikan, instead of downtown great port stop. Do not schedule excursions if you want to see any of the towns. Icy straight point which had nothing to do in town had the best dock times. We were not able to see Juneau or Ketchikan. Why did we have to be at both cities 6am to noon? These ...

This was our second Alaskan cruise, which meant we anticipated a certain amount of rainy weather. The greatest positive is that with the exception of one day, and this was a 9 day cruise, the weather was absolutetly spectacular. This cruise was one of the first since cruising has revived post covid. There were a few reminders on this cruise of that fact. To the best of my knowledge, there were ...

( 1) The wind went WOOOO ... WOOOO ... WOOOO through the balcony door all night the first night. Couldn't sleep, so we called the front desk, but nobody came. Reported it to the cabin steward the next morning, nobody came. Finally went to front desk and they sent somebody who told us nobody had told HIM to come. He put on white foam tape which helped but three days later the sound was back and ...

We went on the 11 day cruise for a get away after our 32 year old daughter was killed. The Sun crew on the Sun went above and beyond to make our trip wonderful. The food and our room were great. Both specialty and the Garden Cafe. Entertainment was Good. The first two ports we went to Icy Point and Skagway were great! Glacier Bay was beautiful, the Rangers that came on board were very ...

Nine days, recently refurbed vessel, nice itinerary- What could go wrong? Mass confusion regarding Canadian? boarding requirements, slow speed (fuel savings?) caused most of port calls to be shortened, tendered at Juneau, with no ships at docks until we were leaving, and no port visit off the ship at Victoria. Docked at Ward Cove, a tourist shop barn 25 mi. from Ketchikan, instead of downtown ...

This is the second cruise we've taken. Our first was a repositioning cruise on HAL. I am 29, my girlfriend is 26. We cruised with my parents (50's), and my grandparents (late 70's), in celebration of my Grandmother's upcoming 80th birthday. Before the cruise: We Pricelined a 2.5* hotel for before and after the cruise. We got the Summerhill Suites, downtown. Despite the name (and the website), ...

Norwegian Sun Aug 12-19 The following report is considered opinionated and not designed to criticize any cruise industry. To start, as a word of advise, do not attempt to fly from the East coast to the West coast in one day as I did, however I was very lucky to make the final boarding call at 3:30 P.M. Pacific time. First "do to security reason, just about every flight in the air was not on time ...

Me, my husband, 2 children, and 10 friends sailed the Norwegian Sun on July 29th, 2006 from Seattle to Alaska. At embarkation, we were stopped for having a bottle of wine. We had hoped to bring it aboard to have a toast with friends as the shipped sailed. The wine was seized and we were told we would have to pay $15 if we wanted to bring it aboard. Once we got aboard we went to our cabin. It was ...

I have cruised 4 times, so I'm not as much a veteran as many on these boards; however, I do believe that our experience warrants a written review. My previous cruises were on Disney (twice) and Princess (once), and both were fabulous! Alaska is beautiful, so there was no way to disappoint anyone as far as geography is concerned. That said, I would not recommend NCL to friends. Some of my ...

This was a wonderful vacation. Let me start off in Seattle. We stayed at the Edgewater, Seattle's only true waterfront hotel (and right next to the Norwegian Pier). Lovely hotel, great food, nice rooms, and we walked both to Pikes Market and to the Pier when it came time to board the ship. Though a bit pricey, I recommend the waterfront rooms at this hotel. Seattle was gorgeous and I wish I'd ...
