Norwegian Pearl

July 2016 - Norwegian Pearl to Alaska - Inside Passage

Alaska CruiseTypical

The cruise started in Seattle and with all the excitement of leaving port it was quickly diminished at sea. Norwegian has an open format for meals but the buffet and the restaurant are the same. Tried several different restaurants and the buffet the entire cruise and did not find a satisfying meal the entire cruise. The service on board is great as the waiters and waitress are helpful and accommodating. One bartender in the great outdoors area needs to be educated on how to service guest but the wife and I refused to let him ruin our cruise so we just went to other bars for drinks then went to the great outdoor area or waited until he was not working in that area to enjoy this portion. Juneau was our first stop and whale watching was excellent. Skagway was the second stop and 4 blocks of tourist stops and 12 hours of being in port could have been better served in another area. Glacier Bay has to be the highlight of this cruise. Will definitely come back if for nothing else than Glacier bay. Ketchikan is a great stop and a flight to Misty Fjords was the highlight and a last minute addition. Our last stop was Victoria and would have preferred a longer time in port to enjoy this great Canadian town.

Boaz's Tips

Victoria, British Columbia - 5.5 hours is not long enough in this great Canadian town. Beautiful inner harbor and a nice walk from the cruise terminal.
Ketchikan, Alaska - We took a float plane out to Misty Fjords. This was by far one of the highlights of the excursions we took.
Cruise Glacier Bay - Park rangers come on the ship and describe details of the surrounding area and glaciers.
Skagway, Alaska - We took the White Pass railway which has awesome scenery. If you have taken the Durango Silverton railroad much of the same. We ate at the Bonanza Bar great food and service. 4 blocks of tourist traps for a 12 hour stop.
Norwegian Pearl Norwegian Pearl - Seriously consider booking excursions off the ship if at all possible. Most if not all of the excursions occur with other ships in port so it is competitive. You can usually get better pricing you go straight to the operator.
