Review summary

Experiencing Alaska and the Yukon Territory by ship was a wonderful adventure. The Norwegian Joy was a large ship, but we never felt crowded. The ship is very well laid out. We were a little disappointed by all of the addons and sold out attractions. Book early. Wonderful, priceless memories with our kids and grandkids. The glaciers were unbelievable.
