Moderno was a cool restaurant to visit, unique way of serving or offering "all the menu" as they would bring pieces to your table and you could say yes or decline the meat etc. I've never done that anywhere before, and thought it was a nice way of sampling all the things on the menu!

Read the reviews and pay attention to what they say especially on cruise critic and research the cruise line you are going to go on and before booking it read the current reviews
We had our breakfast each morning in the restaurant on the bar side. It was much quieter and so much more pleasant and always seats were available. It was like a hidden gem!
Our balcony cabin was on deck 8 aft which was a great location. The theatre was on decks 6 & 7 aft and one of the 2 dining halls was on 5 aft. The buffet place was on deck 11 aft, next to the pool area. Instead of riding the elevator, it was a short walk to my preferred places.
We did not go to any of the "paid" dining venues because we found plenty of variety in the "complimentary" dining areas. We were prepared to, but found it unnecessary. We found the ultimate beverage package that was a bonus to be excellent...but doubt that it would be worth it if you had to pay.
Popcorn in the Sports Bar, Las Ramblas in Deck 12, hidden gem - tapas bar. Take the train from the airport - quick, convenient and cheaper than shuttles or taxis.
If you like sushi or Japanese dishes try the dinning room on deck 12. Good price and good food. Be sure and visit deck 13 just once to get a wonderful view from the top, top deck.
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
On rainy days there is not enough seating in buffet dining room. Aft outdoor buffet was nice to discover for bkfst. Moderno a quieter place for lunch. French specialty restrnt was excellent.
The tourist center in Skagway offer a movie, lecture and wonderful tours of the town with a pamphlet showing all of the buildings which serve as mini museum. Excellent - don't miss! As an added bonus it is free.
It was great to have NCL Sun at the Anchorage Train Depot to take our bags directly to the ship on the day of Embarkation.
Sport bar staff are excellent
Rent a car from Seward to Anchorage. There are beautiful hikes to do on your way to the airport. We hiked Ptarmigan Lake Trail.
The subway in Vancouver from the dock to the airport was very easy and inexpensive, only $4 per person.
For example: Observation Deck is a great place to hide and read a book in the afternoon.

Popcorn and g re at wings and soup and dip and chips for free in the nice sports bar. Same as the Norwegian Spirit
Don't miss the Observation room on Deck 12. It is tucked away and we didn't find it until the second to the last day - it is a lovely space. Best bar on deck is the Sports Bar; our bartender, Cy, was fantastic. If you want to get great photos, seek out Vladamir.
Fun 50-60's band on the 12th floor
The Windjammer bar was the place to be.
