Review summary

Beautiful very scenic cruise. If you are expecting more a classier cruise its not there. But first time cruisers love it. Food was OK in restaurants. Better in Buffets. We were really looking forward to lots of Seafood to eat but it was not there. Alaska is known for Seafood. Lots of cruisers disappointed. Somewhat chaos taking tours. We bought tickets for Totem Poles tour. NCL did not have enough seating on bus , they should have known how many tickets they sold. They tried to get another bus then it got blocked by another ship that came in but we could walk way down past another ship to get bus. At this time we decided to get refund. We had local drive us to see sites in Ketchican.

Did not see room attendant much. Had to keep asking for items. Like coffee for coffee pot in room. Needed room service forms. Our safety lock box was hard to lock-up. Had to keep making it try to work over and over.

Ship tip

Laid back cruise don't expect a lot of workers tending to you. I have never worn jeans on a cruise so much. I am use to being pampered more. That's why we come on these cruises. NCL not for us to much Freestyle.
