Awesome Alaska

Highly recommended cruise. 

Really worth the money. All the staff are very pleasant and friendly on our entire trips. Menu restaurant in INDIGO and SUMMER palace was not to the par and standard of the restaurant.  Asian or Chinese food choice was very poor  especially in Lotus restaurant. With the current trend of high Asian Chinese travelers, highly recommended for better choice of Chinese food

My favorite part of the cruise was the Variety Show and Glazier bay. The staff was excellent.

The buffet dining was not good. The food lack variety and was not season well. The ice cream and cake was delicious. The charge for drinks were over expensive.

The internet package we purchased onboard was expensive and did not work 90% of the time. The amount of internet time purchased was used without us ever getting online. I did not like the daily $13.99 charge for each passenger for the cruise staff. The gratuity or service charge was already included with our purchases, food (specialty restaurants), drinks and spa service. Why add additional charge? I think the passenger should decide how they want to tip the staff.

I think the onboard pictures were too expensive. The passengers should have the option to purchase the pictures they like 1 or more at a reasonable cost..

Overall, with cost paid for the cruise, which is expensive, there were trump up cost to add to the passenger expense/cost.

Everyone was so friendly and we really loved the freestyle relaxed atmosphere with NCL. The food was really good in the buffet where we mostly ate but we enjoyed Sheehans availability late night. Junaeu excursions had issues so we missed the city, we didn't  want that to happen in Skagway so we wanted to cancel an excursion. At first they said no only if they could find a buyer, it was past the cancellation deadline. We skipped the excursion anyway and when we were ready to finalize they refunded our money. Made the experience even better knowing they cared about our expectations. Our stateroom attendant Newman, was great, loved my towel critters.

Our fav part was our Room Steward Christian , he treated my elderly mom like a Queen, she is still talking about it.my least fav not enough in the afternoon to do we were board with the trivia, name the tune ect... why not try cooking classes or social stuff for 50 and older. and Bingo is great but $39. to play WHAT to expensive.and just turning on the lights in the lounge at 11 when everyone is having so much fun was a REAL DOWNER if we are having fun keep it going 70's night was amazing but ended to ABRUPTLY "WOW" what a DOWNER.

The sites were wonderful.  I was very unhappy with my treatment on the Norwegian cruise line.  I am telling everyone not to cruise with them but Alaska is great.  I have a handicap of my left arm is paralyzed and the treatment I received by the staff while boarding almost brought me to tears. then while going to excursions I was treated very hateful for asking where to go other than a big meeting room as I didn't want to miss my excursion.

It's difficult to mention only one favorite, when we really enjoyed all our excursions at each port of call. We loved seeing the humpback and orca whales, the glaciers, the fjords, the waterfalls and cruising Glacier Bay. Not to mention the shopping,

1.The favorite part was Free Style dining and Ultimate Beverage Package, and the Shows

 

2. Education of the crew, English language, and too much trying to be friendly atmoshere was annoying. 

 

3. Public announcement system needs improvement

FOOD TIP: Amazingly, the best food on the ship are the Indian dishes presented in the main buffet, the Garden Cafe. The curried chicken is exceptional.

The back of the ship (outside) on the 12th floor was great. Lots of sun and excellent food.

O'SHEEHAN'S TIP: If you're looking for a snack at the Blue Lagoon, forget it. It's been swallowed up by O'Sheehan's. Good omelets, bad burgers. Good artichoke dip, bad chicken wings. Good beer, good beer.
