A Fabulous Trip

Sail Date: August 27, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Inside

The Norwegian Wind to Alaska was fabulous. The staff was friendly and the inside stateroom more than comfortable. The Free-Style dining was certainly a plus and the food in all of the restaurants was wonderful. We found it a little difficult navigating the ship as the upper floors were inaccessible from certain elevators. It took a while to get use to the layout. The itinerary was fabulous and the shore excursions were wonderful. We love Norwegian and sail with them often.

Pros: The free-Style Dining

Ship Quality
The layout of the ship left a great deal to be desired. Difficult to gain access to the upper levels from some of the floors. Otherwise, decor, cleanliness, and condition - excellent.
Shows we attended were above average. We particularly liked the comedian. What a hoot!
Food and Dining
The food was excellent in all of the restaurants. Free-Style dining is a definite plus.
Cabin / Stateroom
Large and comfortable inside stateroom with lots of storage.
Service and Staff
All staff members were exceptionally friendly and helpful.
Skagway, Alaska
Plenty of time in this port and well worth walking around. We took the train ride and loved it. Spent time in the shops and restaurants. A very wonderful day.
Don't Miss: The train ride.
Ketchikan, Alaska
So quaint and unique. We didn't have enough time in port. Didn't enjoy leaving the ship so early to enjoy the city.
Juneau, Alaska
Too little time. The best shore excursion we have ever taken was the helicopter and dogsledding.
Don't Miss: Dogsledding is a "don't miss". Expensive but certainly worth it.
