7 Night Alaska Sawyer Glacier (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 06, 2016
Ship: Norwegian Jewel
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 8569
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 1 year ago

Favorite part was gathering with family for dinner and shows( which were very good).   Dismayed to see that certain menu items had a surcharge. Overall the food in all areas was good. Service was very good but setting up a big table for all  was problematic. We usually had two tables of eight which was OK. Perhaps there could have been more things (movies, games, etc. for young teens. More mature persons would like some quiet places to read or relax without a constant flow of people passing.  Most lounges had something else going on, like Bingo, sales pitches, demonstrations. The Library was small.

Our steward Jerome, did a good job keeping the room in good shape despite my two young teen granddaughters.

Ship Tip

We preferred the Azura Dining Room to the Tzar. They were more willing to acomodate our crowd and it seems cozier. Breakfast on the Back Deck (weather permitting) was very pleasant.

Mt. Robert Tram was special. Town too commercial.
