7 Night Alaska Glacier Bay Northbound (Vancouver To Seward)
Sail Date: June 08, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Sun
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Check-in process was very slow and inefficient. People were being trained while doing their job.

The stateroom was good!

Food was terrible!!! Service slow! Personnel was poorly informed.

The only good part of the cruise was the day in Glacier Bay with a ranger.

Highly recommend "Hurtigruten", another Norwegian cruise line which offers the service and food one likes to remember and recommend.

We will not recommend NCL to anybody!

Ship Tip

Food was bad at the cafeteria and most restaurants - La Cucina, Le Bistro and more than bad Las Ramblas!
Again the over all ship was fine, our staterooms was great. Best days were the last two: Glacier Bay with the rangers was tops! and Hubbard glacier. Primarily because of the food, we would nev
