Room Type: Inside

This is the first time we ever cruised with Norwegian but it will not be our last. From the moment we boarded (quickly) and got to our cabin it was a pleasure. We have cruised to Alaska before with another line and it just seemed to be filled with old people. It was so nice to see a multi generational group of people.  Everyone was represented, old and young. Our cabin was a great size for an inside cabin. The bathroom had a nice size shower and ample storage. We ate in the main dining room every meal and really enjoyed the free style cruising. We never had to wait for a table and most times we had a window table. The food was excellent, the service amazing and the atmosphere was exceptional. Ther was more than enough to do shows, games, poolside, spa, library, clubs casino etc or just laying around relaxing. The ports were fine , since we had been there before we didnt do very many of the excursions except for Victoria. When the ship is in port its great you have the whole ship to yourself. The glacier was a diappointment as we had seen a much larger glacier but it wasnt terrible. All in all we would do this again and we would go on Norwegian.

The bathroom was excellent in size and we like an inside cabin as it is dark as pitch anytime of the day. Great for napping
