Review summary

This cruise is all about Alaska and was amazing. Alaska gets a 5, Norwegian gets a 2. Look hard for another line unless you like crows and less than average food!

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
Very disappointed in the buffet as well as Cagney’s. Reservations are hard to get and we ended up eating dinner at 9 pm.

The Local

1 out of 5

The food was average except for barbecue night. It was not edible. The lamb chop was gray, the beef was very tough and I didn’t even taste the other meat item! One waitress was RUDE (rolled her eyes at me) to me and another cruiser as well! The menu is limited.

Cagney's Steakhouse

2 out of 5

We had to eat at 9 pm to get reservations. I had prime rib that was slightly dry and fatty. The sautéed mushrooms were tasty but room temperature. A glass of wine was $24 and not special. My husband had salmon which he liked, but his mushrooms were also cold.

Onboard Activities

Not much to do for adults.

We only saw the Beatles show which was awesome! Once again we couldn’t get reservations for any other show!

Service and Staff

2 out of 5
ONE waitress and the internet supervisor were just plain RUDE! No excuse for eye rolling or arguments!

Ship tip

Avoid it. Too large and overcrowded! The staff is not uniformly polite and the food was not even acceptable!
