7 Night Alaska Sawyer Glacier (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 09, 2014
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8020
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

We experienced the MAGNIFICENT MISTY FJORDS SEAPLANE in Ketchikan and the views were spectacular. Took Go pro video as well as stills but still can capture the felling of the excursion. We also experienced the TRACY ARM FJORD & GLACIER EXPLORER in Juneau which took 43 passengers up to 2 glaciers and we saw humpback whales and orca's as a bonus on the way to the glacier. The crew for the excursions made the trip. I have gone scuba diving in the Western Caribean but the view of nature in Alaska on these 2 excursions were outstanding.

Ship Tip

On Norwegian I would always get premier dining package, well worth the value for the options that you have. Since we had great shore excursions didn't really use balcony much since we were off of the ship.
