Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Only ate at the Buffet once, it’s a Buffett. Le Bistro and Cagney’s were superb! Savor (food/drink and waitstaff) were fabulous! And The Local always hits the spot!

Onboard Activities

Did the water slides and go carts while still docked in Seattle. All are a blast! The thermal spa was fabulous!

The short walk to Mendenhall Glacier is worth it. Definitely stop at the Sandbar bar and grill for Halibut and homemade onion rings!

Ketchikan, Alaska

5 out of 5
Started off windy and rainy but weather got better and Creek Street was a must see. It was fall in Alaska but great weather overall! Pop into the Totem Bar for a beverage!


4 out of 5
A bit slow waiting for the buses but not Norwegian or the ports fault and got to airport in plenty of time.
