Norwegian Cruise Alaska

Cruise to Alaska your way!

Norwegian Cruise Line

What do I mean by a Norwegian Cruise Alaska being able to cruise your way?  Good Question. Norwegian Cruise Line (or NCL) offers what's called Freestyle cruising - no set dining times, no assigned tables, a relaxed dress code & more restaurant options.  Sounds good, right?!

My husband and I thought so and took a cruise aboard the NCL Star.  It was absolutely fantastic.  The dining choices were plentiful and we tried every option available while we were on board.  Our room had a porthole, but a large one that gave off plenty of light.  We weren't in our room very often so didn't need a balcony. The entertainment on board was great.  We enjoyed the shows in the evening but spend most of our days out & about.

Rene on a Norwegian Cruise Alaska

We're thrilled that the Norwegian Pearl, Norwegian Jewel (as of 2012), and Norwegian Sun (as of 2013!) all offer Norwegian Cruise Alaska cruises.

Their cruises are all 7 days and leave from either Seattle, WA, Vancouver, BC, Canada, or Whittier, AK and the ships spend at least 7 hours in Ketchikan.

Norwegian Cruise line is perfect for couples and families, young and old.  They welcome those with disabilities as well as gay and lesbian travelers.

Prices for a 7 day Norwegian Cruise Alaska begin around $500/person and go up from there.

However, they are known for their discounts and have previously offered $99 kids' fares & complimentary onboard credit.
