We had a great trip, however we were put in stateroom #11110 which is the farthest from the elevator, my husband and I are both disabled and handicapped, we needed a room very close to the elevator. The travel agent told us we were right next to the elev by mluersx5

Ship: Norwegian Joy / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

We had a wonderful time on the cruise, like I had already said, we were not happy about the fact that the travel agent told us we were right near the elevators, we were not and so therefore we had to do a great deal of walking and between my husband's bad back and knees and arthritis, and my very bad back, the walking back and forth all the way to room 11110 was not helping the matter. Someone needs to tell the travel agents to look at the map and make sure that they are getting elderly and disabled people closer to the elevators. Thank you for giving us a fantastic vacation, next time, give us a stateroom closer to the elevators.

Exceeded my expectations! Wonderful Experience! by TylerStevens

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

I was blown away! The cruise exceeded my expectations! We would definitely do the same trip again. Norwegian is a great company. Just wish they would have worked to get our rooms closer together. We booked the cheapest inside room and ate only at the included dining spots and can't imagine why anyone would need to upgrade. Love the whole experience.

Wonderful Alaska Cruise on The Norwegian Joy by chungp

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

My wife and I really enjoyed the Alaska cruise on the Norwegian Joy. The ship was very beautiful and the services throughout the ship were exemplary. Although we loved the food and services at the specialty restaurants (Cagney's, Le Bistro, Teppanyaki), we also enjoyed dining at the buffet and the complimentary sit-down restaurants. The exotic Indian curries at the Garden Cafe buffet were mouth-watering. Kudos to chef Logan and Praveen - your lamb shank curry and chicken tikka masala were outstanding. We should have asked you for the recipes! For outstanding services, special compliments also go to Elsie and Joan from Le Bistro, Yundus and Makora from Cagney's and Adrian from Teppanyaki. What can I say about the entertainment crew? Each and every one of them was outstanding! Unfortunately, I do not recall all the names, but Krystle, Arvin and Yanique come to mind. Thank you Krystle for teaching us to sing "This Is Me" and preparing us to perform in front of an audience! Last but not the least, the stage shows - Elements, Footloose and the magic of Pj Wen - are not to be missed. They were just outstanding!! All in all, a highly memorable cruise.

Don’t Book Through United by amydavis775071

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

Alaska was amazing and everyone on the ship was great and nice. The issues were with the website, app, WiFi, etc. we felt like we were being charged extra for everything and not given the full story about what charges there would be. Just be warned. For example we upgraded our WiFi with the understanding the promotional credit we got would be used toward the few. That wasn’t true. Also our friends who booked direct through Norwegian were treated so much better and got s better price than us (who booked through United)

Ship was modern and roomy, included meals were decent, but suffered from inconsistent service and plating by ejpbowie

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

The ship was modern and mostly well laid-out. Elevators were always busy. Racetrack and laser tag were somewhat gimmicky and could have been done better, but probably not worth the amount of space devoted to them. Mini golf small and almost impossible to find. Buffet was usually a better option than the food in the complimentary restaurants.

Great Experience on Alaska Cruise by vanavypsydoc

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

A little different type of cruise as this one has much more ability to interact with nature if one desires as well as watch it while sailing.

Beautiful short cruise - Alaska's inside passage by jarts26347051

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

We enjoyed the ship; it was beautiful and modern. Most of the crew was friendly and helpful, and went above and beyond. I am saddened at the amount of hours employees have to work. 10 to 14 hours a day, 7 days a week, for months is unreasonable. People should get a day off a week to recuperate and enjoy the trip.

Cruise to Alaska was Fabulous by hodgeskrista

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

Great cruise with beautiful scenery. Alaska is a beautiful place. I wish we had been able to see the Dawes glacier on our cruise, but due to the calving ice we were not able to make it. We had a very relaxing time, and had a great mix of things to do and relaxation on the trip. There was plenty to keep our teenage son busy on the boat. There were so many unique things to do on this boat like laser tag and Go carts that we have not had on other cruises. we had a wonderful time

Cruise to Alaska by ddrewry3015

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

We very much enjoyed Alaska but were very disappointed with Norwegian. We both smoke and the only place to do so was at the very back corner of the ship away from everything. There was about 50 of us crammed in the corner. There was no shelter from the rain and the cold. We missed all of the entertainment because we didn’t know you had to make reservations. We have cruised many times on other cruise ships and have never had to make reservations for the entertainment.

Best Anniversary Celebration by RegWoo

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

This was our first cruise and Norwegian knocked it out of the park. Everything was well planned from the moment you booked. We signed up for three more cruises and can’t wait to experience other ships. However I would have to say the Joy was truly enjoyable.

Great by gtrumble3725

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

It was expensive. Will go where it is much warmer next time, although weather was OK for the season that it was in Alaska. Tours were high priced also. Would rather stay more at the pool during the day. Seafood night lines were way too long. Better process needed. Crab legs were difficult to open without a cracker.

Wonderful Alaska cruise. Loved the ship. staff was great. Food was good. by patriciamm

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

Loved this cruise. If you are flying make sure that you do not have a early morning flight out of SEA as several ships dock at the same time so the airport is nuts. It took us 45 min to get to the TSA scanning area. The line went on for ever.

Alaskan weather was perfect! by billkleinhome

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

We went on this cruise with 11 other family members. It was the trip of a lifetime and was enjoyed by all. We hung out on the 15th floor observation deck. It was always able to house the gang and food and beverage service was perfect.
