Review Summary

This was our first time on NCL. Loved it! Recommend it to all. Loved the ship, the food, the cruise director and staff. Loved being able to make our own schedule and actually do what we wanted to do when we wanted to do it! Go figure. Couple of downfalls where we had opted for express disembarking when we returned. There just did not seem to be enough staff showing us which way to go and way too many people also opted for it. You were being cut off by people coming off the elevators after standing in line for a long time!

Ports Of Call

Juneau, Alaska

3 out of 5
The beauty of Alaska shown through the pristine wilderness and loved to see the Mendenhall Glacier in the distance as we Kayaked. We were there very short time as we traveled up Tracy Arm to see the Sawyer Glacier! INCREDIBLE!
Don't Miss: Being outside as you travel up Tracy Arm!

Ketchikan, Alaska

3 out of 5
It rains 300 days a year! What to expect. It is small with nothing much to do. Loved the duck tour we took and it was our first time seeing Bald Eagles in the wild.
Don't Miss: Duck Tour! Fun with great guides!

Prince Rupert, British Columbia

3 out of 5
Other than the 10 or so stores right near the ship, there isn't anything worth going to see. The port is in the industrial area and it's pretty darn boring. We sat and people watched.
Don't Miss: Made in Prince Rupert Store. Very nice

Skagway, Alaska

5 out of 5
Our favorite spot. The town is so quaint with wooden parkways and ramps and the shops delightful.
Don't Miss: White Pass Railroad

Pros: Free style cruising!

Cons: Express disembarking!

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!
