Room Type: Inside

Enjoyed the cruise overall. Great food, wonderful staff, excellent ship and beautiful scenery.  The drink package was a nice option.  Wished we received the reduced rate listed above for our group of 10.  The itinerary was changed last minutes and we did not visit Skagway, went to Sitka instead, very small port.  We had a group of 10 excursions to see the Mush Dogs cancelled.  We did received a $50 refund per passenger due to mechanical delay with the anchor.  We hope to do the same trip again at the reduced rate.  NCL's transportation from Vancouver port to airport was very overpriced.  A call to NCL representative never provided any options either!  We know better now.

Cabin / Stateroom
Enjoyed having Hebert Castrol take care of his. We had three cabins in a row.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Overprice cost to airport for a large group of 10 by NCL!

Take the time to explore all the amenities, lounges, and sights on the ship. Found most of them at the end during the Inside Passage. Great ship and staff!
