Cabin with balcony, starboard, mid ship was ideal to an easy, quiet, scenic view of a glorious part of North America and the Tongas.

7 Night Alaska Sawyer Glacier (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 30, 2016
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Suite
Cabin Number: 11036
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

The ship was "ship shape", food quite good and we were invited to dinner with Captain Kenneth.  We enjoyed new vistas, Dawes Glacier through Endicott Arm from 4-8:30 PM on Thursday evening during the supper hour.  Glorious way to end a day.  We found companionable fellow travelers and a frankly smiling friendly crew throughout.

Live music in many forms brightened both evenings and nights.  It was Alaska after all, ports in the Tongass National Forest!  I used the Jewel library to good advantage and enjoyed learning new geography and history.


Other travelers with a spirit of adventure and wonder at water, mountains, forests, sea life, Happyinteresting port calls and in need of a "change" would welcome this week get-away.
