Very interesting cruise by lbreu232

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

This is a very informative and interesting cruise. It was interesting to see how people live in these areas of Alaska. Even though the towns and cities have decent populations, they are a distance from any other city. We really enjoyed the ability to sightsee and hike walking distance from the ship. The glacier was great - especially the NPS Rangers coming on-board to share information.

Great Alaskan Cruise by davidbeauchamp0

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

The overall cruise was wonderful. My only complaint was the excursions seemed to be a little pricey, and we only had one full day in a port. If I had to do it again I would pick a longer cruise to allow more time in each port, 7 days was great but 14 would be better!!

A cruise in the Haven was like a cruise in Heaven by azgerhard

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

We were so happy that we upgraded to the Haven. After reading reviews it was a no brainer. A little pricey but, well worth it. You can go down to the casino etc. with all the crowds of people and then come back to the peace and quiet of the Haven with its private restaurant and dining and pool etc. Our next cruise is Feb. on the Breakaway and yes in the Haven again. I am now good and spoiled.

Beautiful Alaska by jrgleas

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

We had a great time overall. The internet was not good. Had 250 free minutes, which most of the time, it was not working. needs improvement. Entertainment was good. Service was friendly and timely.

Not one of my best by Plantwoman2

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

Will not go on NCL again. A little boring on sea days. Comedy club was funny but did not realize material would be the same every time

Great staff by mmendes6780

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

Great experience. Casino has a smoking section so you don’t come out smelling like cigarettes, pool is too small. Staff is the best

Relaxing Revisit of Alaska by BobSmolen

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

Overall, very pleased with this return trip to Alaska. The choice of the JOY, and its number of passengers, concerned us at first, but once on board, we never felt crowded. Shore excursions were well organized, on-time, and interesting. Food as good as, and often better, than other Norwegian cruises. We will recommend this cruise.

Ship is way too big! by jessibowden2016

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

This ship was too big to appreciate anything about the time spent on it. The staff was overwhelmed and mostly friendly. Recommend not taking the Joy.

Excellent Cruise! by marteeb

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

Overall, I would rate this cruise a 5. Everything was exceptional. I would recommend NCL to anyone who would like to enjoy a great cruise. The food, drinks, service, entertainment and things to do are perfect (at least for us)! We will be back!!!

The first wonderful Alaska Cruise by takeshi09099769

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Norwegian Joy / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

This was the first time to join Norwegian Cruise. Most certainly Norwegian is the best for us so far. We confused some of payment system such as premium beverage package and Children's meal services because we strongly expect a REAL all inclusive plan without any additional payments except for very limited special activities. However we all very much appreciated all of cruise staff members and we were so lucky to see very thoughtful people. We are looking forward to seeing you next time soon!!

Anniversary Cruise by kquanz

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

This was my husbands first cruise but not mine. It was for our 25th wedding anniversary. I enjoyed it, although there were times of boredom. Many of the activities on the ship are not interesting to us and I am unsure if we will cruise again.

Beautiful Ship, Beautiful Alaska, Average Experience by matt99fsu

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Norwegian Joy / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

In summary, I highly recommend Alaska (go on the ship with the best deal). Get a balcony room it's worth it (saw a moose because of it).

Wonderful Family Memories Made on Our Alaska Cruise by eileen250

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Joy / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Good cruise with lots to do, but also lots of crowds and activity around. If you want relaxing, hang out on the observation deck or in one of the small cozy areas of the ship. Having a balcony is a must. Room service is great to eat quietly and if you drink, get the pre-paid drink package. You can carry plates of food and drinks all over the ship. Also, there is an area just for adults which is nice for some wanting a kid-free area

Lovely Alaskan Cruise by speechlady

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

Overall very relaxing well organized cruise. We loved the Free Style Dining in which we could choose any restaurant and any time. It was easy to make reservations on board right from the screens in the hallway. Ports of call in Alaska were fantastic, staff was very cordial and attentive. The captain was amazing in how he could handle the ship in the tightest of spaces (turning around in a narrow passage at the glacier!!!). Food and coffee were the only small negatives - not as good as expected but will sail NCL again.

Nice ship by donaldmcpherson

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Norwegian Joy / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Service was wonderful. The only issue with the staff is communication. Shower was way too small and the water pressure was atrocious. Beautiful ship. We could have left out Juneau and added another glacier stop or added Anchorage/Seward.

Vacation of a Lifetime by amcclay

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Norwegian Joy / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

After reading some negative reviews, I want to start off by saying those people must be incredibly fussy. We had a family adventure of 10 people of varying ages and everyone had an absolutely incredible time. Everything went smoothly, from the flight there to the flight home. The views were just awesome, and we were lucky with sunshine every day we were in Alaska. We enjoyed the food -- the specialty restaurants were delicious and the buffet was just what we needed as a family with 2 small children who were happy to have choices and eat quickly. The staff were friendly, the ship was clean, and we enjoyed all of the activities we took part in.
