Alaskan cruise - WOW

Alaska wasn't that high on my bucket list, but my husband was definitely interested, so off we go on the Norwegian Jewel for the 7-night Alaska cruise out of Seattle.  It was way beyond our expectations.  The scenery was magnificent!  We even saw a whale breach from our aft suite balcony -- too bad we didn't have our camera at-the-ready.  The ship was clean, service was impeccable.  We had the ultimate dining package so we ate in the specialty restaurants.  Our favorite was Le Bistro (with Cagney's running a close second).  As suites guests, we also had breakfast and lunch available to us in Moderno and it was quite good.  I cannot speak to the main dining room or the Garden Cafe on this trip because we did not eat there.  Our butler was very accommodating, bringing us breakfast twice in our suite and dinner from La Cucina once.  

All in all, one of the best cruises we have ever taken!

Dinner at the top of the Space Needle in the revolving restaurant a must!

Day we were there it was rainy and cloudy so not ideal for sightseeing. We did see Butchart Gardens, which were beautiful, even in the rain.
