A must do trip. The Norwegian Joy is an awesome ship. The dining and everything about our cruise was first class. Any time you travel, go with the flow, and have fun. We will most definitley will sail again with Norwegian Cruise Line. by tjones73wku

This is a must do cruise for everyone of all ages. The Alaska Inside Passage was everything we had heard it would be and more!

Vetry nice for one of the larger ships by scottandjo

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

Large ship required reservations for almost everything, not in line with our freestyle likes but overall a nice ship with a great itinerary. Saw lots of beautiful scenery and wild life. The service on the ship was top notch. I highly recommend this cruise to any and all who are interested in Alaska.

Lots to like but this cruise fell short by fishmanjeffva

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

Wanted to experience Alaska and left feeling dissatisfied. Surely a better itinerary could have been conjured up. Food on ship was not vacation worthy. Other lines try much harder. Cabin was good, friends on board, excellent staff efforts made it okay, though. But we are not encouraged to return to NCL.

Well run ship with lots to do. by ski126

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

Better than most cruises. Very refreshing change from beach destination type cruises. Ship was beautiful and well laid out. Way more positives than negatives, Crew was also a step above average cruise ship crew.

A beautiful getaway by Cruiser6954890

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

Everything was perfect. The only thing I would change would be making the hot tub much hotter. The food was good and the ice cream was a daily hit.

Great time by lewisjohnm

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

It was our first cruise, but we are going to do another one next year. The only complaint, the kids in the next door cabin were very loud with doors slamming day after day.

Over priced, hidden fees by caseylackey

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

To celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary we decided to take a cruise and bring our 3 daughters (15,13,8). We were all very excited, but that ended with the accumulation of fees to do anything on the ship.

Amazing Alaska cruise!! by amarie8261

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

Our trip was amazing. We saw 14 whales throughout the entire trip. We had a balcony room, which I really recommend for an Alaskan cruise. That is where we were able to see several of the whales. Norwegian charges for many of the extra activities that you want to do on the ship, such as the go-karts, the laser tag, painting classes, wine tastings, some of the game shows, etc. Their specialty restaurants are incredible, especially the seafood restaurant.

Note extra charge for Laser Tag and Racetrack by pardnme

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

Please make SURE that the extra charge for Laser Tag and Racetrack is better posted prior to guests booking their cruise. It was a disappointment to my grandchildren that they needed to pay extra.

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

Had booked smaller ship, 2000 people, Norwegian put ship in for rehab, was switched to Joy, 3800 people. Just too big, too many people, lines and noise.

Adventurous Alaskan Cruise by jsigmont

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

I liked the cruise. The boat was not as fancy as I thought it would be. The only other cruise I have been on was a Princess cruise. That boat had many fancy decorations. There was only one really fancy chandelier and a glass staircase on the Norwegian Joy.

Found out I'm not a crusier! by firewife714

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

Too confined! My fault for getting a inside cabin, I dealt with that but I just felt so confined during the whole trip! Always on ships schedule. Dinning room was the best of all! Food was superb! Servers and Supervisor excellent! Always looked forward to dinner! Entertainment was Very Good!! ELEMENTS was fabulous! All in all just too many people on board and in ports. Especially when with other ships in Port.
