7 Night Alaska & Sawyer Glacier (Vancouver Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 27, 2006
Ship: Norwegian Wind
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)

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.

Shows we attended were above average. We particularly liked the comedian. What a hoot!

All staff members were exceptionally friendly and helpful.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
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.

Cabin / Stateroom

Large and comfortable inside stateroom with lots of storage.

So quaint and unique. We didn't have enough time in port. Didn't enjoy leaving the ship so early to enjoy the city.
5 out of 5
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.

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.

Pros: The free-Style Dining
