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!!!

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.

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.

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.

Beautiful Ship, Beautiful Alaska, Average Experience by mjsweet

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

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.

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.
