Ship: Norwegian Encore

First cruise back in North America for NCL. It was an amazing vacation and you could tell everyone including the staff was excited to be back. Onboard entertainment, food and the ship itself was immaculate.

Excellent Return To Cruising by latitude4738

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

An excellent cruise. The staff as well as the passengers were all glad to be back at sea. The ship is virtually new and well designed. NCL did a great job of handling the Covid vaccine requirements and pre-boarding testing went smooth and a great piece of mind for all aboard.

Great return to cruising by SusieQ02

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Our experience with embarkation, and throughout the entire ship was spectacular. With a few communication, adjustments, the ports would have been better. Loved cruising without a mask. Disembarkation wretched!

Great Alaska Cruise on new NCL Encore by tenece

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Encore

Our first time to Alaska, it was wonderful. NCL Encore is a great ship with plenty of bar and restaurants for open spaces, loved the layout of the ship. Covid pre boarding process was pretty easy and took about 1.5 hours to get on the ship. Kind of like Disney World just move from station to station and before you know it you are on the ship.

Awesome Alaska Adventure by kathywarwick0

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

This trip was a celebration of 40 years of marriage and we had been looking forward to going to Alaska for several years. The cruise experience was everything we had hoped for and more than we could have imagined. A beautiful ship, fantastic crew, delicious food and we felt very safe with all the preparations and procedures related to COVID. Cruising in Glacier Bay National Park with the park ranger commentary was like being in a National Geographic feature film. All the excursion partners were excellent and we loved the fishing with our catch cooked for our lunch on an island in Ketchikan. We have traveled most of the US and this was truly our top experience in a breathtaking natural setting.

AMAZING, very clean and safe cruise by Navychaps1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

This was our first cruise post COVID, NCL has this down! Recommended 72 hour prior test with the testing at port brings a comfort level around other passengers we never had pre-COVID. the 100% vax requirement just added to the comfort around others. The ship is amazing in cleanliness and in technology. The staff, in all areas of the ship were exceptionally helpful. 50% capacity at sailing made this experience even better. Absolutely no lines anywhere!

Amazing Alaskan cruise by tcgzhonold

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Encore

This trip to Alaska was on my bucket list. NCL did not disappoint. The Encore is a beautiful ship with wonderful staff. The food was exceptional. A 5-star hotel on water. Couldn't have asked for anything better.

Excellent Alaska Cruise by wdnolasco560332

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

This cruise was exceptionally good, Icy Point Straight a new feature since I was last there in 2018. They have 2 sets of Gondolas, one to head for the cannery and the other one to go up in the mountains and Rope Course now besides the zip line.

Alaska is amazing. NCL Piers... not so much by LISASOXFAN

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Cruise was great. Loved the Encore. Will not go back to Alaska via NCL. The new ports were an inconvenience especially when you have cruise lines that will stop right in town.

Back at sea by channeling

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

It was so good to be back at sea, and the crew and everyone in Alaska welcomed us back like long lost relatives. The excursions were exciting, whale watching, white water rafting, zip lining, visiting native village with totem pole carving exhibit, and a fun lumberjack show.

Couldn't believe how beautiful it was. by vickywagner

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Encore

This was an awesome experience and have put down deposits for 2 more. Alaska was beautiful and I could not have asked for such a family and accommodating crew. I would encourage everyone if they can to take a cruise on the Norwegian. Loved it

There is a lot to love about NCL and Alaska. Some quirks with the ship and some COVID disruptions, but overall, a good vacation. I will be back.

Awesome Alaska cruise by phuongvuasia

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Encore / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

An amazing Alaskan experience. I learned a lot about the history of how people not only survive but thrive in such wilderness. A lot of mishaps and apathetic with pompous, arrogant and unprofessional guest services but the cabin crews were above and beyond expectation. For Alaskan ports, I wish I have more time, there was so much more I wish I could do (helicopter to top of glacier, for example). Will definitely come back.
