Great ship in layout and activities. One issue I had is all the hidden fees and activation fees. They sell these great packages with all these free features but what they don’t tell you is the hidden activation fee to use the app, to gamble at the casino by mshanel2020

Overall the ship and staff were amazing. The port of calls were great. Most excursions were cancelled. Not sure why. They weather was great.

Some fine tuning needed by cruizinjoe

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

The process of using the Internet on mobile devices is frustrating for all travelers (just ask the guy at the help desk who was overwhelmed with answering questions). Something needs to be done to make this much easier to use. Ugh.

Beautiful and Breathtaking by BubbaDat

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

Icy straight point /Hoona is still a wasted time because of the small area of shops and space. We were not even a full ship and people were on top of each other everywhere. Small walking trail around the docks was not allowed to go to town (small as it is) because of Covid. Hallways are tight in the cabin areas and very hard to get around with scooters and or people on them. In the public areas they are fine but they will have problems with a full ship. Be prepared to walk a lot on the ship to get from one side to the other.

NCL Alaska is Fantastic by Slmillertime

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Encore

This cruise was fantastic. Great ship. Great Food. Great entertainment. One of the best cruises I have experienced. The best feature of this cruise is that all on board were vaccinated and it felt like cruising before this horrible virus COVID existed. First time I have felt normal in a long time. Thank you NCL. I will be a faithful customer forever!!!!!!

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.

Irresponsible and Uncaring by kyoung1983

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

Norwegian started and ended my cruise terribly. Firstly, one of my excursions was cancelled a MONTH before the cruise but they didn't bother to inform me and all the other excursions were sold out once I was on the ship. That sucked. Going to Alaska and not being able to go whale watching was a HUGE disappointment. Then they completely failed at the end. I used the Port Valet service to get my bag to the airport. They had 7 HOURS to get my bag to the airport and they failed. It did not make it in time for my flight. Contacting customer service is a joke - they don't have a phone number, you have to email them. I have been passed around to 3 different companies Norwegian has tried to blame for the mistake. They refuse to take responsibility themselves and reimburse me for my airport transfer. If you are offering the service you are advocating for them, you are saying it's ok and we can trust them and you should take responsibility when they mess up. Norwegian doesn't care about customer service at all. They are untrustworthy, irresponsible, and I will never cruise with them again.

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!

Not worth the time taken, not to mention the money spent. by kcatlock

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

Norwegian definitely doesn’t suit my travel needs. Even Carnival beat them (they talked frequently about how they were better than Carnival).

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.

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.
