Room Type: Suite

The room and dining service were magnificent.  Lots of personal attention from the cabin steward and dining room staffs, all with objective of making the cruise a memorable experience.  Special kudos to Santosh, maitre d. in the Indigo restaurant and to Nancy Mendoza in the Garden Cafe.  They went the extra mile to assure our special meals were prepared and served to our liking and satisfaction. Our cabin steward Carlos, took care of our rooms even making special arrangements for the Sabbath for us.


The Garden Cafe is great for quick and delicious breakfast and lunch with a tremendous selection to satisfy all.


Some of the shows were great. I especially enjoyed the Tim the comedian and Ray the magician.  I thought I had seen them all, but Ray had some new tricks up his sleeve (?) or whatever.  Tim got the whole crowd doing the Wizard of Oz again. My wife especially liked the husband-wife Circus Soleil act.

Cabin / Stateroom Had a balcony suite cabin with great views. Was able to use the balcony when in port and at Glacier Bay; unfortunately, Alaska under way is kind of wet/cold for relaxing on the balcony. the cabin steward, Carlos , was great.

Seattle, Washington
Juneau, Alaska
You can book excursions for the Mendenhall glacier and whale watching at the pier for less than booking through NCL.
Skagway, Alaska
Cruise Glacier Bay
Ketchikan, Alaska
The itinerary allows too little time for Ketchikan. The boat leaves Ketchikan by 1:00 PM. Get an early start if you want to see something.
Victoria, British Columbia
Again this is a short stop; arrives at 6:00 PM and leaves by midnight.
