Review summary

It had been 4 years since I cruise Norwegian and I had a deposit that needed to be used. I'm very disappointed in the direction they're going wasn't anything like it was four years ago a lot has changed. I don't feel it's the best value for your money out there any longer! I've done several cruises on Carnival and feel it is a much better value for your money. I have not done any other Cruise Line from everything I have researched their prices are much higher.

Food and Dining

I am very disappointed in the direction Norwegian is going with their food. Cruise to Alaska yet no Seafood shrimp or Lobster in the dining rooms. Maybe in specialty but always on a Carnival Cruise they have seafood!

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Play Deal or No Deal always a good time. Was pretty exhausted from all the shore excursions Alaska was beautiful!

Cabin was kept clean and a very nice size, I truly enjoyed the balcony even at the price we paid. Can get the same kind of balcony for half the price on Carnival.

Ship tip

I would pick one of the other many cruise lines that sail to Alaska!
