7 Night Alaska Sawyer Glacier (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 05, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 10653
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 2 years ago

We had the unfortunate experience of an entire day/night in rough and rolling seas.  But other than that, the captain, crew and the discounted fare rated 5 stars.  The staff behind the customer service, at the casino, at the duty free shops, and behind every single shop or restaurant we happened upon gave their 100% in service and genuine friendliness.  Our cabin steward "Tut Tut" took the top award, often going beyond to respond to our arcane requests.  We took advantage of the terrific options of dining selections, finding ourselves dressing up for a  beautiful dining experience or dressing down and eating at the galley.  Our travel agent Jim Niederriter handled all the preliminary work with professionalism and expertise.  I highly recommend contacting Jim if you want to totally enjoy your vacation from start to finish.

If you are traveling with a wheel chair, be sure to give months' notification. We did and was very happy to have a cabin with ample floor space.

Ship Tip

Was very impressed with the captain how he maneuvered the ship in a 360 degree turn so that everyone could view the glacier

Have visited Victoria many times since I live in Washington state, so the 5 of us elected to stay onboard and took advantage of all the fun evening activities together.
