LoveLoved each port but especially Skagway, which is like stepping place in time. Least thing about the ports was all the jewelry store, I mean every 3rd store! Really?! 

Really liked the Norwegian Sun, the people were great & our Steward was exceptional! Took great care of our room & respected our privacy. 

The ship is on of Norwegian's oldest & really wasn't made for Alaska's changing weather. But the food was great, room was clean & entertainment was fun! 

Cabin / Stateroom
Clean & neat. Older & needed updating. The couch in our room had a big stain on it, but we never used it.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Older ship in need of major updates but clean.
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs Didn't participate but the kids all looked to be having fun
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Seward (Anchorage), Alaska
Didn't see much but from the train to the ship.
Icy Strait Point (Hoonah), Alaska
Don't take the walking tour, boring, but do explore the town & try the zip line. Not only is the drive up amazing it was so fun.
Cruise Sawyer Glacier


Loved the Seven seas, the waiters were great & food was so good. Prepare for rain or hot sun, Alaska's weather can change within the hour.
