Norwegian Sun

May 2015 - Norwegian Sun to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

Great Alaska Cruise on Norwegian Sun

I think this Alaska cruise that includes Glacier Bay, inside passage, and the 3 main cities (Skagway, Ketchikan, Juneau) is a must for everyone once in a lifetime.  It was fun to stay in Vancouver a few days before the cruise.  The scenery on the ship and at the ports was amazing.  We got very lucky with the weather.  I loved the dance/singing shows on the ship.  My one main complaint was that I felt that our shore excursions were too expensive for what was offered.  The American Airlines shuttle to Mendenhall Glacier was too rushed and too expensive. I would recommend just taking the $20 shuttle from the port at Juneau and take as much time as you would like visiting the glacier and the visitors' center.  Also the photography tour (American Airlines) was too expensive in Skagway. I would recommend the train in Skagway instead.  Also, you are not allowed to take food off the ship, but they did not give snacks on the tours, so I was very hungry.  Overall, though, a fantastic time on this cruise.

SunnnyJudith's Tips

Cruise Glacier Bay - Fantastic. The ship rotated slowly twice in place, so plenty of time to see all views from all directions. Look at the views from outside.
Skagway, Alaska - I heard the train ride is great. We paid too much for an American Airlines photography tour.
Juneau, Alaska - Go to Mendenhall Glacier. The public shuttle (20$) from the port is probably the best way to do it. We paid too much for a rushed American Airlines shuttle to the glacier.
Vancouver (Canada Place), British Columbia - Biking around Stanley Park was my favorite. People are very nice and it's easy to get around. I recommend staying near the waterfront, near the cruise terminal because it is so central and close to the visitor center. Go to Vancouver Overlook-during the day was great, but the entrance fee allows you to come back at night if you want.
Norwegian Sun Norwegian Sun - In Juneau, take the public shuttle (20$) at the port to see Mendenhall Glacier. We paid too much (~50$) for an American Airlines tour that felt rushed.
