A cruise to Alaska on any cruise line is a fabulous trip! The sights are breathtaking and the shore excursions are a lot of fun. We would recommend an Alaskan cruise to everyone! The Norwegian Pearl, however, is completely run of the mill.  Nothing awful but also spectacular here.  The food is so-so unless you upgrade to the specialty restaurants.  The entertainment was good, but the activities were limited.  We purchased a "Romance Package" which was a nice treat and a great value. With that being said, we will be choosing a different cruise line next time.

So incredible! Spent a lot of time in front or Marjorie Glacier and observed a lot of calving! A true highlight!

A very pretty but overly crowded town. The salmon were spawning, what a sight! Try Annabelle's for their 3 pound king crab bucket!

So beautiful, however, as the ship doesnt dock until 6 pm, there is so much that he didnt see. Would love to go back some time and see more.
