7 Night Alaska Glacier Bay (Vancouver Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 18, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Sun
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8253
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Norwegian did a great job pampering us and the weather turned out to be much better than initially predicted.  We were ready for chilly wet days but were surprised by sunshine every day at every port. Definitely an adventure we were glad we took.  It's great for families and those who are mobile.  Might be a little more difficult for those with mobility challenges as most of the excursions involved outdoor activities on rough terrain.  Vancouver is a beautiful city to depart from and the ports were typically Alaskan with a more wilderness feel.  We loved the change!

Very flexible when a lead person got sick and couldn't perform. The entertainers were very talented and we enjoyed all the shows.

Ship Tip

It's not easy to get to one end to the other so explore and make sure you know which floors connect from the aft to the forward of the ship. Otherwise, a beautiful ship and well manintained.

Lumberjack show was OK but staged. The town was an interesting walk-thru.
