Well, I can scratch this off my bucket list!  What an amazing cruise!  Alaska has to be one of the most beautiful on earth.  From the snow capped mountains to the amazing glaciers there's is always something spectacular to behold.  The soaring Bald Eagles are breath taking!  

We sailed on the Pearl, it looks a bit dated..I think it could use a facelift.  We selected Norwegian for their "freestyle dining" and it didn't disappoint.  So many selections/variety and very tasty.  It's very relaxing knowing that you don't have to make your 6:30 or 8:30 seating time and you don't have to be formal!  The cruise director did an excellent job with entertainment and he's very talented himself.  The majority of the crew are happy, helpful, energetic and polite.  We received a lovely cake and a song for our anniversary dinner.  I would highly recommend this cruise!

Cabin / Stateroom
Good size with a nice balcony. It could use a little updating.

Food Tip: the braised short ribs in the Garden Cafe are delicious and fall right off the bone!
