Review summary

We did the Norwegian Cruise Tour before the cruise and it was great. Took a train from Fairbanks to Denali National Park was great. The tour guide was fantastic. Would recommend. Then we met the Ship in Seward. The cruise was great and we had a great time. I feel Alaska is one of the best cruises that you can take.

Food was good but rushed us both times we ate here. I think because they only had 4 stations so they had to turn them to service all the people. Food was very good.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff throughout the ship was good to great. Our room steward Rodrick, was the best we had on all 10 other cruises we had gone on, not all Norwegian.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Was in good shape for the age of the ship. Like finding the Martini bar not easy. It was put in the maderno restaurant with only a few seats. At least they added it to this small ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Inside cabin, had a good amount of storage and we made it work for 3 people. Very quiet.

Ship tip

No reservations at the shows, so get there early if you want a seat. One show we got there when started and we had to stand to watch it.
