The Observation Lounge

4 out of 5

The space here was great for our trip to Alaska! The only downside was that people were falling asleep in the chairs and NCL staff wasn't making them move. Thus there was a lack of seating.

This was worth it! The obstacles and the staff made it 100% worth while!

Race Track

2 out of 5

We had reservations for this but canceled after we heard them stopping the carts if anyone went to fast or bumped. While safety is key the point is to race not follow in a line.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The ship layout and design were great and spacious. The only flaw I saw was that they took out the atrium elevators which made the only other elevators extremely crowded. There were alot of people in wheelchairs that couldn't use the stairs waiting a long time. Also they have hand activated sliding doors leading to the outside decks. A lot of people did not know this so the first few days of our trip, people were running into the doors.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
This cabin was amazing! Bathroom was spacious, there were 3 of us in the room and there was space for all of us. The sliding door to the balcony was tricky to get open but we got it!

Ship tip

The ship is huge so be ready to walk! If your taking this ship to Alaska bring warm clothes. While the ship has heaters in certain areas there were not enough!

Absolutely stunning!!

Seattle, Washington

The port was good but the Terminal could have used more personnel to do crowd control. No we did not do an excursion.

Skagway, Alaska

The port was nice. See the waterfalls if you can!

This was probably the worst port. There was a long walk and nothing really to do.
