Norwegian Sun

August 2015 - 14 Night Alaska Glacier Bay (Vancouver Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Sun

Excellent scenery; amazing crew

This was a great cruise.  Being on the Sun which is one of the smaller ships in the fleet we were especially happy with the service. 

The itinerary was great. Being able to see both Hubbard Bay and Glacier Bay was exciting. The were both breathtaking.

Norwegian Jewel

April 2015 - 19 Night Panama Canal & Pacific Coastal (Houston To Seattle) Cruise on Norwegian Jewel

Great Itinerary

The itinerary on this cruise was awesome. The Panama Canal should be on everyone's must do list. Also all of the ports we visited were full of adventures. I would not recommend this cruise for small children since the average age of the passengers was 66. The one issue that we had was with some of the service. While all of our problems were taken care of it was unfortunate that we had to complain since service is one of the main reasons we cruise. The food was excellent. We ate at the buffet for breakfast and lunch and the specialty restaurants for dinner. We enjoyed each of the different options.

BoulderCruisers's Tips

Norwegian Jewel Norwegian Jewel - Enjoy the cruise. If there is a problem, report it and let them get it fixed. Be patient and have fun!
Laem Chabang (Bangkok), Thailand - This port is very much an industrial port. That said, we had a tour booked and so we drove to Bangkok which is a 2 hour drive. We saw many of the Buddhist temples and also enjoyed a delicious Thai lunch. This was an interesting city. Very crowded, quite dirty, and a lot of poverty but we were still drawn to how friendly the people were. We also visited Pattaya which is near the port. Nice city and much less crowded and dirty. Nice place to go to the beach.
Phu My (Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam - We decided to take a ship's tour in this port since there are about 11 million people in the city which was formerly called Saigon. This is a very tiny city considering all the people. This was one of our "must see" cities on this cruise and we really were glad we stopped at this port.
Singapore - This is a very clean city. We did not do an excursion because we had been there before and just wanted to unwind from the flight.
Ko Samui, Thailand - We really enjoyed Ko Samui. Thailand is a very nice city and they are trying hard to clean it up since it was a bit dirty. We had wanted to do a ship excursion but they were sold out so we got off the ship and there were plenty of people offering tours for bargain prices. We had a wonderful day and were very glad we came.
Chan May (Hue), Vietnam - This is the port to DaNang. We started out of the city on the top of one of the mountains but were unable to see much due to the fog. We continued on to Marble mountains and then to see some of the city. Our guide from Tours by Locals was very informative and we really enjoyed the day
Ha Long Bay City (Hanoi), Vietnam - Great day for a Junk Boat cruise. There were 3 cruise ships in town on this day so we took a taxi to the junk boat terminal and joined the the multitude of people who were going on tours. We met up with our tour group and before going on the water we enjoyed a traditional Vietnamese lunch. Delicious!. Off to the junk boats. We had read that you need lots of time to be able to explore the waterways so this was perfect. We really enjoyed the tour and they dropped us off at the cruise ship tender area.
Hong Kong - Maybe we were just tired of the crowds but we weren't really very excited with Hong Kong. We took the Hop On/ Hop Off bus around town but the stops were hard to locate. Also, Hong Kong would only accept money from their own country so if you are going there be sure to exchange money.
Port Kelang - This was a new port for cruise ships and it was awesome. The people went out of their way to make us feel welcome.
Cruise Chilean Fjords -
Cruise Beagle Channel -
Cruise Cape Horn -
Cruise Patagonic Channel -
Cruise Strait Of Magellan -
Cruise Inside Passage, Alaska -
Cruise Glacier Bay -
Cruise Hubbard Glacier -
Astoria, Oregon - Walked the town, tried some beer and promised ourselves we would come back.
Acapulco, Mexico - Great feeling of security. It was nice to be one of the first cruise ships to come back.
Norwegian Jewel Norwegian Jewel - Watch the carpet in the hallways to find which way is forward. The fish always swim to the bow.
