Norwegian Sun

July 2016 - Norwegian Sun to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

Peaceful!

Friendliest staff of any cruise I've been on! Scenery was so peaceful and beautiful!

Ship was extremely easy to get around on! Especially the dining room was easy to reach by elevator.  Don't fight the crowds go to dining room for a complimentary breakfast and lunch for a relaxing sit down meal.

Norwegian Jewel

September 2015 - Norwegian Jewel to Alaska - Inside Passage

18th Alaskan cruise!

I love the Jewel staff! They go out of there way to please you! The complimentary breakfast, lunch or dinner in the Tzar are delicious! O'Sheehans complimentary meals were my husbands favorite! He could make a meal from the hot wings instead of eating as an appetizer. You can stay busy all day with the activities and entertainment or just relax and do nothing. One reason I prefer Alaska cruise over Caribbean cruise is you can watch for whales, dolphins, dall porpoises, bears, and mountain goats, birds, etc.

Norwegian Jewel

May 2015 - Norwegian Jewel to Alaska - Inside Passage

17th trip to AK

The scenery, ports, whales,and eagles provide so many incredible photo ops! The first whale I saw on this trip was from my balcony while still docked in Seatlle! Docked in Juneau an eagle landed on a light pole just outside my balcony! When cruising AK you can watch for humpback, orca, seals, etc. instead of just seeing water and more water! Read the Freestyle Daily that is put in your cabin each evening! It tells everything that is going on around the ship and where things are located. The paper lists all the restaurants and times open along with the activities you can choose to participate in. One of the complimentary dining rooms you can just wear jeans and shirt.This was my 17th trip to AK and each time I have seen something different.

Juneau, Alaska - great whale watching. Whales stay in about the same place so they know where to take you .
Cruise Sawyer Glacier - Get up early go to deck 13 Spinnaker to get a great spot to watch for scenery and animals. Informative ranger will give talks. They provide coffee and baked goods for breakfast.
Norwegian Jewel Norwegian Jewel - Don't fight the crowds for breakfast in Garden Café go to O'Sheehans! On football days get a spot early in O'Sheehans to enjoy the game and great food!
Skagway, Alaska - The history narrated on the White Pass Train is fascinating.
