Review Summary

The staff on this ship was absolutely incredible.  Everyone was extremely nice and seemed to love the job they did. The food was very good but certainly not great by any means.  Freestyle dining is wonderful and had minimal wait time.  There was one drawback...the beds were very hard and worn out.  You could actually see cupping in the center of the mattresses.  They were very responsive and came quickly and put a foam topper on the bed.  It helped a lot but it was a miserable week of sleep.  We had sailed with Norwegian before to 
Alaska and the bedding was great.  There were only 4 hot tubs for 2200 people which made them a bit overcrowded.  But all in all we had a wonderful time...

Took a looong walk to the light house and then to the hotel area. Very interesting...a lot of drunks there. And I mean a lot! At 10am in the morning. But! You could get an hour massage for 20 bucks! They were on the least 30 different massage tents!
