Alaska Jewel S. E. Alaska Cruise.

Sail Date: June 14, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was our second cruise with NCL and enjoyed it very much.  We really liked the open dining and made good use of the Buffet because it afforded us more time to go ashore and visit friends we knew in Alaskan ports.


The only bad spot was getting directions from the tour directors for joining land tours.  We were directed to the auditorium one deck above where the directors really wanted us to be.  We then found that those giving directions on where to meet and board tours were very difficult to understand.  They didn't seem to care much about their jobs or whether we found our tours.  The tour people on "Pride of America" two years ago were a much better crew.
