August 2016 - Norwegian Pearl to Alaska - Inside Passage
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.
