Perfect cruise to explore South East Alaska. The ports were just right (although it would have been nicer to have been able to stay in Juneau longer), meals were good, and the spa was perfect to relax in the hot tub.

Review summary

I live adventure cruising - using the ship as a "floating hotel" while exploring the beautiful Alaska rain forests. NCL departed on a Monday which worked perfectly into our schedule as we attended a wedding in Alaska before the cruise and sailed back to Vancouver on our way home to the east coast.

Perfect for viewing the beautiful scenery of Alaska. There were 3 of us in the room which worked however I felt the bedding could have been more comfortable.
