Everything worked like clockwork! Very disappointed about not being able to make specialty restaurant reservations on line before the cruise.

Ship: Norwegian Jewel / Destination: Coastal - West Coast

It was a nice local cruise for us. We got to see some fall foliage in Vancouver and Victoria and the weather was absolutely perfect.

Too too much beauty by debjwhatley

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Jewel / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

I am ready to go again already. We’d never taken a northern or chilly weather cruise before. We’ve always gone on warm climate cruises. We acclimated very well to the cooler temperatures and enjoyed it immensely.

Enjoyable cruise by Kfrog

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Jewel / Destination: Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

I would definitely take another cruise on this ship. Overall, I found the staff to be excellent and very friendly. I would have preferred less liquid sunshine, but the areas desperately needed the rain after a warm, dry summer. (Some salmon were dying because the streams they had been imprinted with had dried up.) However, the same trip would have been significantly more expensive over the summer, and likely more crowded as well. I did expect some rain, just not every port over two weeks (back-to-back cruises)!

Alaska was amazing! Wish I had went on Carnival! by Birdnut50

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Jewel / Destination: Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

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.

Enjoyable trip by Kfrog

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Jewel / Destination: Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

I enjoyed the cruise, despite the liquid sunshine at every port. Hubbard Glacier and Glacier Bay (which I don't consider to be ports) were the most important to me, and the weather was good for those. I had expected rain, but not as much as we received. It seemed at every port someone would say that the weather the previous day had been beautiful. However, they did have a very dry summer and needed the rain.

Excellent Ship and Staff by Garmanr

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Jewel / Destination: Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

Our third time on the ship. Always a happy crew. I think this is because of exceptional leadership from the senior staff. The next cruise team and the super shopper Richard are among the best in NCL, Carnival, and Royal Caribbean.

Alaska Cruise by sugarg

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Jewel / Destination: Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

Food was good and liked ability to dine anywhere within constraints of restaurants with extra charges ("nominal fees" for these were not particularly nominal). Liked the ports of call and cruising route. Wheelchair assistance when required was very good. Entertainment could be improved - I like to participate in daytime events rather than evening ones and these were lacking.

Fabulous Alaska by TQuila48

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Jewel / Destination: Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

We had a fabulous time on our Alaska vacation, and enjoyed the Jewel tremendously. Our balcony cabin was basically as expected, with sufficient storage and surface space. I was pleasantly surprised to find USB ports in the bedside light fixtures, makes charging your phone and using it as an alarm much simpler! The entertainment on the ship was fantastic, Anna and Vlad were fantastic acrobats, and Larry Omaha was quite funny! Food was as expected, tasty but nothing exceptional except in the specialty restaurants. We have no complaints about service, every crew member we encountered was super friendly and helpful.

Alaska Southbound Cruise by robindigi

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Norwegian Jewel / Destination: Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

For those who want to know more about the towns/ports of call and the history of Alaska, I recommend seminars, Q/A or at least a handout in advance of each port arrival. The main emphasis of the cruise seems to be on the dining/food and cruise evening shows- we could be anywhere in the world. We wanted more information about the history of Alaska and the people who live there. All we received were excursion lists and a map of where I could shop in town.

Alaska is an absolute must for anyone who likes to travel. I was a bit skeptical about doing a cruise there, but it was a good way to go. Definitely recommended!
