Alaskan Cruise

|

This was a bucket list item in that I wanted to visit Alaska (the only state I hadn't been to) and to experience the coast of Alaska. We did the land portion of our trip first and the cruise on the way back so it ...

Some REALLY GOOD . . . Some REALLY BAD

My wife and I cruised on the Jewel from Anchorage to Vancouver. We have now cruised 27 times, mostly on Carnival, Princess, and Norwegian (six times). I occasionally post cruise reviews here, but only when the ...

Nice state room, but had some issues.

First time in many many years to cruise with NCL. The stateroom (mid-ship mini suite with balcony) was very nice. However, in our judgment, the food was not up to par with other cruiselines. For example, there ...

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. ...

Our first ever cruise and trip of a lifetime, but food was mediocre at best!

The trip itself was fantastic, Alaska is an exceptionally beautiful state, but when you go on a trip to a destination that prides itself on being the crab, salmon and halibut capital of the world, wouldn’t you ...

Very ordinary cruise on NCL

We sailed on NCL for the first time but had used Holland for our last cruise, so we were comparing most everything with how Holland did it. FOOD: Diner menu's in the 2 main dining rooms were the same so it ...

A tale of two cities

Best entertainment we have ever had on a cruise. No one act made the shows, but Duo Nika was the best of the best. Food was pretty good, but getting into the restaurant was a nightmare. Took 30-45 minutes to get ...

Food is HORRID

This was a "bucket list" trip for us and we did 5 days pre-cruise in Alaska prior to boarding the Jewel in Seward. We are late 40's, early 50's and were considerably younger than most couples, as was expected. ...

Alaska was beautiful and the weather was exceptionally good.

We chose the cruise because of the itinerary. Upon arrival at the airport, we had to wait for transportation for over an hour to our overnight room. We prepaid for this transport. Our tour was reversed by Norwegian ...

Alaska in September? Be prepared for liquid sunshine.

The good: drinks, bar service, cabin service, food service (but not universally food quality) embarkation, disembarkation. Five for free. The mediocre: food everywhere except Cagney's and La Cucina (and the one ...

NCL Disappointing, Views great!

I had researched various Alaska cruises and decided on NCL since they offered a land and sea tour where I thought we would like to go! Land tour was awesome!! The only negative was our accommodations in Denali. ...

Vegans beware

If you are not a meat eater, beware of this cruise line because the choices for you at dinner time are very sparse. I mean who wants to eat the same dish at dinner for 7 nights? Vegetable lasagna gets really ...
