7 Night Alaska & Sawyer Glacier (Vancouver To Seattle)
Sail Date: May 08, 2010
Ship: Norwegian Star
Cabin Type: Inside

Reviewed: 8 years ago

The ship was beautiful and the ports of call were nice. I enjoyed the inside passage views. The ship personnel were all about money. Beds were not comfortable. Had to put money upfront on room for charges with set amount for tips, would not let you buy ANYTHING until you settled these charges for tips upfront. No free soft drinks, had to purchase them. Day of disembarkment. stopped on the way outside of ship for $8 charge, never given reason for charge. Should have given a bill night before to settle then, not on day leaving.
