Jewel of a time.

Sail Date: September 17, 2016

Reviewed: 8 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We took the NCL shuttle from the airport to the cruise terminal. Very nice to leave your luggage and not see it again until it arrives in your cabin. Embarkation was smooth.


We had a balcony cabin on deck 10 forward. Cabin was clean and in good shape. Plenty of storage. 


The ship itself was overall in good shape with an attentive and friendly crew.


The food in the MDR overall was good, some days nothing sounded good to us. Buffet food overall was pretty good. Decent selection of different type of cuisines.


 La Cucina was very good as was Moderno. 


 We enjoyed the entertainment.

They did have your trivia and a few game shows. However a lot of the activities are now lectures with sales pitches.

If the Salmon are running walk up creek street it is a sight to see.

Mendenhall Glacier is something to see. You can buy tickets on shore out to the Glacier. This year it was running $15 each way.
Skagway, Alaska
The train is a great time. Skagway brewery is my favorite spot for lunch.
Cruise Glacier Bay
Stay out on deck or near a window. Enjoy every moment in this beautiful place.


There is the great outdoors, deck 12 aft. It is a smaller buffet. Most people don't realize it there until the third day.
