Norwegian Pearl

August 2016 - Norwegian Pearl to Alaska - Inside Passage

Great cruise......

This is a wonderful cruise.  I was not that crazy about making this trip, expecting it to cold and stormy.   However, I was wrong, and we only had 2 days of foul weather, just as we departed Seattle, then the weather turned sunny and warm, with postcard views of glaciers, mountains, whales, and wildlife.  I especially enjoyed Glacier Bay, and the majestic views.  Norwegian manages the cruise well, and the best part is that the staff is very accomidating, and the crowd is very civilized.  Only nits to pick is that food quality could be better, and the casino is very smoky.  Overall, their are too many smokers in the public areas, and mar the fresh Alaskan air.  I wish the ship was totally non-smoking.

Norwegian Pearl Norwegian Pearl - The Garden Cafe is the best place to dine. Beef dishes in the fine restaurants are disappointing, as the beef is not prime or choice cuts. The 6th deck wine bar is the best place for an adult beverage. The Spinaker Lounge on the 12th deck is the best place just to read, relax, or hang out.
Skagway, Alaska - Take a ride on the White Pass and Yukon Rwy, as it has tremendous views, and is quite the engineering feat.....
Juneau, Alaska - Take the Pilots Choice helicopter trip. It is expensive, but worth every penny to see the Juneau Glacier....
Cruise Glacier Bay - High point of the trip. Buy a good camera and take many pictures.....
