Norwegian Jewel

August 2015 - Norwegian Jewel to Alaska - Inside Passage

Expensive and crowded

Even with drink package, EVERY person must show room card, enter tip amount, total, sign, and date for EVERY drink. Huge inconvenience. Severs and customers waste much time here.

Seattle attaches a drink tax (not included in drink package) for every drink will at port for a good distance away from their port.

Very crowded, be prepared to be bumped and pushed in buffet and pool area's.

High costs. Your credit card will be hit for $300.00 as soon as you get on the boat. Some restaurants will still cost you 20 to 30 dollars more because of better food, service, and atmosphere. Atmosphere is a little better, food about the same, service is much slower. Don't waste your money.

The prices for excursions and transportation right at the dock exit when getting off the boat is legalized theft. Walk to the local transportation and unaffiliated Norwegian vendors. you will save hundreds. To go from the boat to the Alaskan brewery would have been $20.00 out and &20.00 back per person ($40.00 total) through Norwegian vendors, we did it for $5.00 per person round trip.

On a good note, getting on and off the boat was very easy and fast for the thousands of people on board.

tkloes's Tips

Skagway, Alaska - Train ride was very long and very expensive, but the scenery was unbelievable.
Cruise Sawyer Glacier - best part of the cruise. We had poor weather, but it was still awesome. And believe it or not, there was no extra charge for this!
Seattle, Washington - Don't spend any time in Seattle, very expensive, crowded, and dirty. Homeless people sleeping on the streets and then waking up to drink their own urine.
Norwegian Jewel Norwegian Jewel - Do not use Norwegian affiliated vendors off the ship. $$$
