Norwegian Jewel
7 Night Alaska Sawyer Glacier (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 16, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The scenery, ports, whales,and eagles provide so many incredible photo ops! The first whale I saw on this trip was from my balcony while still docked in Seatlle! Docked in Juneau an eagle landed on a light pole just outside my balcony! When cruising AK you can watch for humpback, orca, seals, etc. instead of just seeing water and more water! Read the Freestyle Daily that is put in your cabin each evening! It tells everything that is going on around the ship and where things are located. The paper lists all the restaurants and times open along with the activities you can choose to participate in. One of the complimentary dining rooms you can just wear jeans and shirt.This was my 17th trip to AK and each time I have seen something different.
