August 2016 - Norwegian Sun to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska
Staff was great, my steward C. Concepsion, exceptional, I enjoyed my spa treatments and the art auction. I enjoyed the scenery and my excursion except the water was rough and I got sea sick, but did see many whales, sea lions and seals.
If there is a complaint it is that you could have communicated photo opportunities better. For instance people saw the Northern Lights on two nites, but I never heard or saw any notification that I should be in a certain area of the boat at certain times. I learned from the photo shop manager that there was a particular night that is well known and that all the captains stopped there. Why wasn't that on the daily activity list at a minimum? Another is the glacier during the inside passage portion, My room was on the wrong side of the boat, there was nothing in the daily activity list and no announcement I heard that told us which side of the ship to be on during which hours so I missed it completely.
I would also suggest that aerosol spraying of hand sanitizer while a good idea for keeping germs in check is a horrible thing for any of us with asthma or allergies. No way to avoid the airborne spray with folks standing in the doorways spraying everyone's hands. I ended up having a pretty severe allergy attach as I'm highly sensitive to chemicals.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVED the cruise and will recommend it to others and would go again too!
