August 2016 - 14 Night Alaska (Seward Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Sun
Finding gold in Alaska
is a great starting point for any vacation but as usual, Becca Reeves got us set up and going. The Sun is a small ship by today's standards but it is huge on value. Comfortable and convenient this ship had tremendous amenities with good entertainment, specialty restaurants and interesting public spaces. We were blessed with excellent weather and the captain took advantage of this to maneuver the ship VERY close to the Hubbard glacier and once there spun the ship around to give everyone awesome views. The inside passage is in and of itself magnificent with snow capped mountains, abundant marine life and smooth as silk waters and the ports became the icing on the cake. Norwegian isn't for everyone but if you appreciate value and their sense of family this is an appropriate line for an enjoyable vacation. Excursions are expensive due. To limited facilities and a short season but are rewarded with once in a lifetime experiences. I travel quite a bit and I must say that Alaska is a unique and brilliant experience that should not be missed.
