Cruising on the Norweigan Pearl was a relaxing, entertaining, and scenic vacation. There was so much to do for all of us including our 2 children, ages 8 and 5. We feel this is perhaps the best way to see Alaska, and the natural beauty of Alaska is inspiring. We saw whales, seals, dolphins, eagles, bears and glaciers. And even though this was an Alaskan cruise, the ship's pools are plenty warm and our children did lots of swimming. We visited Juneau, Ketchikan, Skagway and Victoria British Columbia. The towns were beautiful and offered many excursions, shopping and dining. My husband caught a salmon on his fishing excursion in Ketchikan.The staff on this cruise were friendly and professional. The ship is immaculately clean and comfortable.
Book early to save money, and if you can swing it, get a room with a balcony.
