That is certainly understandable. An Alaskan cruise is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for many due to the planning and expense of it. I'm glad to hear though that you've cruised before and know that what you experienced was not the norm. I'll be on my first NCL cruise in Oct. I've always steered clear of them because I prefer the traditional cruise experience so we'll see how it goes...
Best of luck to you, buddy!
