First of all Alaska is STUNNING.  A must do cruise.


The check in for embarkation was a nightmare compared to our other cruises. Long Lines, Long Waits, Poor organization.  Hundreds of people crammed into small stuffy hot unorganized areas.

Debarkation was a mad frenzied crush of UN-organized lines and crowds waiting for too few buses.


We were disappointed in the size and amenities of our "mini-Suite".  It is comparable to a Balcony class on our other cruises.

Our stateroom steward was one of the best in our experience.  We Loved Cristian. 


Food and dining were excellent and all staff were exceptional and made us feel like we were family.


Probably would think twice before booking another NCL.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Not a true Mini-Suite. Comparable to Balcony size cabin. Not enough drawer or closet space. Very well kept and clean by our excellent steward Cristian.

Ship Tip

Dont book through Seattle. Take your own bottled water if possible. bottled water is not included in Beverage Pkg.
