7 Night Alaska & Glacier Bay (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 05, 2010
Ship: Norwegian Pearl
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

We were fleeced at every turn - from $3 cans of Pepsi to $15 per bottle corkage fees for onshore purchases of wine - Did nothing extravagant, no drinking, no major purchases - and the on ship charges were $1500 - for a cruise where all but alcohol and specialty dining are prepaid??
