I just wanted to take a ship to Alaska. The Jewel fit my itinerary and took me there. I had little expectations other than to go from BC to Seward. The meals were absolutely incredible, the service and staff were off the charts, the entertainment was great, the classes were an added bonus, and the itinerary was incredible! I loved stopping at the Ports and exploring. I was a solo traveler with few people my age but the staff and crew became 'friends.' Everyone was so kind. I would wake up and go to the fitness room for a class, take a couple of walking laps around the ship, sit down at a nice restaurant for breakfast, and then explore a Port (usually taking a hike and finding a coffee shop). I would get back on the boat, meet with my solo traveler group, go to the 'show' that night, have a nice dinner and coffee, and then head up to a lounge for the evening. Would definitely recommend and take this trip again. Read Less

This was our first cruise. We wanted to cruise Alaska and Norwegian offered us that opportunity. The staff on this ship are exceptional hosts. We felt very welcomed and pampered. Honestly we did not know what to expect and were pleasantly surprised. We were on an enormous ship with hundreds of people yet chose our own activities and seemed to always make new acquaintances. We saw two fabulous shows, Vlad and Anna and Le Cirque Bijou. The Glacier Bay National Park tour was a highlight as well as the talk by Becca - the park ranger. Whale watching was great, our guides were excellent. There are some excursions I wish we would have gone on but it was our first cruise and we picked excursions based on the web site info. We took a tram up to Mt. Robert in Juneau - beautiful view. Each little town had its own uniqueness and charm so we really enjoyed them all. Food on the ship was good. My husband wanted more seafood options and I'm more of a land lover so was happy with my choices. We did most of our dining in the Garden Cafe. We also had meals at the Tsar, Azura and O'Sheehan. The food was good, the service was amazing. We extended our trip to Denali and were in awe of our guides on each leg of our tour. Cruising is an interesting way to travel, a lot more structured than our usual excursions. Well organized and the people - a remarkable group, well trained and exceptional service providers. They convinced us, on a daily basis, that they were happy to have us on board. I cannot say enough good things about the staff. Washy, washy. Happy, happy. Read Less

Embarkation was illogical- lines going upstairs, then downstairs to immigration then lines to Border patrol. Disembarkation was poorly organized in the theater for those traveling to Seward via the Alaskan train. The NCL person was giving out confusing info regarding leaving the theater. People were exiting the ship without any knowledge of the train. Upon disembarking, I turned over my voucher to the Train and received my seat assignment. Total misinformation from NCL. Inside Cabin 9673 was very quiet. Cabin Steward Muhammad Shalahuddin was very gracious, helpful and attentive. As a solo cruiser, when eating in the buffet-my table was cleared regardless of my iPad, book, or backpack being visible. I was hit, bumped, knocked, kicked and pushed by small Asian women moving in herds. Cruisers leaving food and dishes outside of their cabin. It’s rude, makes it difficult to pass the narrow hallways with others and cabin crew’s carts. Those leaving elevators all took the same idea that no one else was around and continued to block the exiting area to have a conversation. Casino’s Black Jack was seemingly not controlled by number of people at the table coupled with amount the person was playing/hand with the dealer pushing buttons at each hand. On the brand new ships: Epic, Breakaway, Getaway, Bliss and I’m guessing the upcoming Encore, the dealers are always pressing buttons before each hand is dealt. (Cruiselines don’t have State Gambling Laws to follow). CAGNEY’S STEAKHOUSE-enjoyable with great service LE BISTRO-located off a bar area with “live music” the hostess closed the outer doors which silenced the bad performer. The chocolate fondu is the best dessert. LA CUCINA- Why is the Caesar salad removed from this menu? This restaurant is directly under the basketball court. People at 8:00pm were playing basketball and the entire ceiling of La Cucina was shaking while being pounded. Cruisers all were questioning the wait staff. The answer was, “the court is closed but people climb around the closed ropes.” Why wasn’t security called to address this huge issue while people were paying extra for the specialty restaurant? AZURA RESTAURANT: very noisy Thermal Suite Spa- clean, quiet, single-sex areas, with a handful of people. Sam, the Spa Manager is delightful, sweet, and engaging. VELVET- very disappointing for NCL’s live entertainment. The (Lexi) female lead’s pitch was often off. The company dancers were poor. Feet, arm placement, hands of all the dancers were always off and never together. The extremely overweight male “dancer’ (Marc) that appeared on stage was simply outrageous, hideous and far from entertaining. He simply was laughable and horrifying. My 10th NCL Cruise- the sound techs continue to be clueless in sound production: Balance, treble, bass, and dynamic levels were all problematic. THE COMEDY OF ACE GUILLEN: This act should be re-named, ACE GUILLEN: HIS MUSICAL OUT-TAKES. There was no comedy to this performance. However, the last night on the ship, Ace did a show featuring his ‘adult comedy.’ He was quite funny. LE CIRQUE BIJOR: most entertaining featuring (Vlad & Anna) and (2 male gymnasts). The dancing was together. A NCL person said VELVET was a new production. POOL: has a lifeguard on duty. I was baffled by the Alaskan ports claiming ‘duty free’ when we are traveling in the US.
