We just got back from the Alaska Cruise on the NCL Jewel. What an amazing week. Our days at sea were filled with great entertainment, amazing food in both the regular dining rooms as well as the specialty restaurants, and relaxation. Our stateroom was quite roomy for 2 of us, and ALWAYS ready for us to return to whether it was an excursion or a trip to the jacuzzi. We had sunshine all 3 days that we were in Alaska (not common), and the views were gorgeous. We saw glaciers from the ship as well as from a hike, and they were spectacular. In Ketchikan, we saw a black bear and her two cubs. In Juneau, we hiked to the Mendenhall Glacier and then took a small boat into the harbor to see the beautiful humpback whales spouting and diving....some were within 150 feet of the 20 passenger boat we were in! And in Skagway, we went zip lining, so much fun!!! From the comfortable beds and onboard entertainment, to the food and amazing scenery, this cruise is a winner!
