Had a great time. Met a lot of nice people. Made new friends. Don't like the little cutbacks. Like a chocolates on the pillow and chocoholics night. I didn't mind the tips have gone up. The kitchen and housekeeping staff are well worth it. My biggest complaint was the visa that I was unaware of. In the end I purchased two next S. Wasn't going to do it based in my last experience. But this cruise was so much better than the one I took.l in May. I like carnivals internet policy. It's $5 a day for social media. It's a great idea when you need to contact family.

Nice but not great by trees4two

The glaciers were the best part. I wouldn't advise anyone to cruise this area this late in the season. Too rainy and the ports were mainly small and poor.

Hottest Alaskan Cruise by maureengallaghe

Dave, the cruise director was personable, fun and really made you feel at home. The staff always said hello and asked if they could help. My steward went out of his way to compliment me and ask about my day. Everything flowed nicely. There was something going on all the time, shows, music, games, and non-stop food options. I was traveling by myself, but never felt alone. Looking forward to going on my next cruise.

Great locations, had fun in the ports, room was clean and staff was very friendly. Food was ok, drinks were decent. Overall, i had a fun time but a 5 days cruise would have been good enough for me.

Worst vacation ever by kalieske

Overall this trip was a HUGE disappointment. Norwegian sucked and we will NEVER cruise with them again. And Cheap Cruises was also incredibly disappointing. We called many times after our initial booking - they were horrible about getting back to us. Won't be using them ever again either.

Just okay, watch the fees and the cost for drinks. Both are outrageous. Not a horrible experience, but not a great one wither. First time, last time NCL cruiser.

Wonderful itinerary, awful ship by mllatko

Ports of call were great, and highly recommended. But you should absolutely go see them on a different ship from a different cruise line. The NCL Jewel features below average entertainment, terrible staff, even worse food, on a beat-up, dirty ship.

Great Cruise by dclaw

Overall we enjoyed this cruise tremendously. The glaciers were fantastic. We will never forget the best part was when we watched the Dawes glacier from our balcony and then went to the Tsar and were seated right at the back of the ship. Loved that whole night.

Drinks are extremely overpriced. Complimentary food is ok, charged food isn't worth it. Entertainment is mostly nice .Best and hardest working guy on the cruise by far is Richard.

Relaxing Trip. by smcalhoon459

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
Overall a relaxing cruise. Friendly and relaxed crew and passengers. Food quality and restaurant service was generally below par except for Cagney's and Le Bistro. Staterooms need upgrading but are clean and comfortable. On-board retailing was overdone. Ports have become too commercial and lost some of their charm, too bad. But, Alaska is still incredibly beautiful.

Very nice Alaskan cruise by anasanav

I am happy with my cruise experience. It was nice to be away from busy stressful routine and be pampered for a week. Sometimes this matters more than visiting or seeing. I just loved the friendly smily staff and all the entertainment and effort they put forth to make us feel at home and we truly called it a welcome home when coming back from walking all day in the cold.

Nothing bad to say the organization and conduct of the cruise has been simply perfect. Crew has shown a professional skill the is rare to find around. As I am an old Merchant Navy Captain, former Navy Seal, and actual Experimental Flight Test Engineer, professionalism is one of the first things I am going to look for in any activity of my life.

Beautiful scenery, wonderful people, great trip by deebanderson

We so enjoyed our first-ever cruise. Everything and everyone on board made the trip so special. The only negative was the high cost of the shore excursions. They were tremendously expensive for what they offered. We can't recommend Norwegian, your staff and "Freestyle Cruising" enough to our friends.

Wonderful trip. The crew was spectacular, the excursions we chose were a good fit for our family. I would highly recommend this trip. We all felt the Alaskan ports were similar. It's the excursions at each that made them fun.

Disappointing by rebbe345

Always heard cruises were great. Food was ok, but nothing to write home about. Entertainment was fair at best. Ship seemed very crowded for its size. Everything on the ship seemed like a sales pitch. Would not do this again.
