Norwegian Sun

September 2017 - Norwegian Sun to Alaska

Older smaller ships have some benefits

NCL disorganization and antiquated website make you wonder if the teaser low cruise prices were or will be worth it. That said. Some other passengers had better experiences on NCL bigger newer ships. Caveat emptor buyer be aware. I would not sail the sun ship again without a rock bottom price matching the below average experience.

marcusremus's Tips

Skagway, Alaska - All day railroad to carcross in Yukon canada bring passport. Gold rush park exhibits are worthwhile.
Ketchikan, Alaska - Less attractions than other ports but salmon in creek to fish hatchery is a nice walk and the totem pole museum along the creek is much better than the one downtown. Good artist stores. Cheapest souvenirs you can get in Alaska. DUCK amphibious tour was entertaining.
Astoria, Oregon - Cannon Beach excursion exceeded expectations 4 hrs 65$ US fair price unless you have a group and rent your own car. NCL was very disorganized and did not well communicate the expected us border agent delays. Disorganization was typical of this cruise.
Juneau, Alaska - Whale watch with glacier excursions good. Much more to do than 1 day allows
Victoria, British Columbia - Not much to do on tours other than buckart gardens and the ncl bus excursions only gives you less than 2 hrs there at the garden which is very inadequate. Consider other vendors or even the city bus. I walked the waterfront boardwalk trail level 5 mile loop beautiful with half of it along the water. Tea at empress hotel is 75 Canadian p.o. yikes.
Norwegian Sun Norwegian Sun - Port excursions costly on ncl you might research other vendors. Internet very slow lots of complaints.
