Fantastic Sights

I lived in Alaska as a child so I was super excited to go back and see it as an adult. I have sailed with Viking 7 times before the Alaskan cruise and absolutely love what Viking has to offer. After we arrived in ...

We have had four Viking cruises so far, with a fifth on the horizon. It’s an adult-level cruise and they treat their guests accordingly. The operation of the vessel was seamless - the passengers never had to worry ...

Alaska Cruise on NCL Jewel was perfect!

Our previous cruise was on NCL and in booking a trip to Alaska, we choose it again and were not disappointed. The NCL Jewel was updated last fall and feels like a new ship. Our mini-suite was perfect with a little ...

Our second Alaska Cruisetour on the Millennium

Celebrity does the best job of making your trip wonderful. We did the precruise tour from Fairbanks to Seward. We did basically the same precruise tour in 2016 with a few itinerary changes. The land tour was awesome ...

Destination Great - Issues need attention

Alaska is always a great destination, even when it was cold and rainy. But my concern is that the food on NCL seems to have gone downhill rapidly since our last cruise on the Jade last September. It was bland. ...

Luxury Ship? Yes! Luxury Service? No!

Disclaimer - this was our first cruise and perhaps our expectations were unrealistic. The ship was beautiful. The food and service were spotty. We enjoyed the food and experience at Silver Note, Kaiseki and ...

Loved Alaska, but not Royal Caribbean

Cheap, cheap, cheap! If you want even bottled water, pay up! You can buy different drink packages ranging from about $12-$70/day per person. If you don't, you can have water, tea, lemonade, or coffee. When ...

It's always been on our bucket list to check out Alaska. Our three previous cruises had been on NCL to the Carribean, Transatlantic, and Mediterranean, so we booked this one with NCL a year in advance. Embarkation ...
