Review Summary

All in all, we loved the Norwegian Alaska cruise. The ship was a bit dated but well kept. The staff on the ship was excellent. Food was great. Lots of fun activities on the ship. Ports were scenic and fun. Well organized cruise. Put more alcohol in your drinks and we'll return.

The food was good. Specialty restaurants were excellent. I do have one complaint. We bought the unlimited drinks package. The drinks were so watered down, it was disappointing.

Hands down the best part of the cruise. The staff was superb. So polite, so helpful.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Even though it seemed like an older ship, it was well maintained and clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The cabin was spacious but had a dated feel. Bed was comfortable. We appreciated the coffee maker. The room could have had less colorful, velvety things (drapes color, for example) and be more chic in decor. Bathroom tub was old and worn out giving the impression of not being clean. Balcony furniture was great. Temperature controls in the room were amazingly effective.

Ship Tip

Don't buy the unlimited drinks package unless Norwegian starts putting more alcohol in their drinks.
