Heavenly Cruise

Sail Date: May 30, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

The whole cruise was handled excellently by the crew & staff. The on-board entertainment was excellent. We were kept well informed about all aspects of our location, ports of call and other spectacular viewing ops that we cruised past.  I would recommend this cruise to anyone (just suggest the northbound route so that you see the best sights near the end). Take a good camera & a lot of SD cards - not just a cell-phone or tablet camera. Norwegian's style of "Free Style" cruising is the only way to go - allows you to relax and do things as you want, fit your cruise to you in stead of you having to fit into the cruise.Love

Cabin / Stateroom
Just right for 2 adults -
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities They had a lot of activities but I chose to relax on deck & view the scenery - one of the joys of "Free Style" cruising
Children's Programs I had no children with me but did see a lot of activities directed to both young & teenagers.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Vancouver (Canada Place), British Columbia
Cruise Inside Passage, Alaska
Ketchikan, Alaska
Juneau, Alaska
To be the state capital it is somewhat disappointing - Don't take any of the tours to Mendenhall Glacier, you can take a shuttle from town to the same visitor's center for only $30 per person
Skagway, Alaska
Best port of call of the whole trip - make time to just walk around town
Cruise Glacier Bay
Have your camera ready & be ready to be amazed - the rear of the ship is the best viewing location
Cruise Hubbard Glacier
Again, have your camera ready & be ready to be amazed - the rear of the ship is the best viewing
Seward (Anchorage), Alaska


Their way of "Free Style" cruising is excellent - totally allows you to fit your cruise to you instead of you having to fit yourself into the cruise
