Default just got off the NCL Sun - Alaska

Just got back today (July 4). Exceeded my expectations. First time cruiser. Food was better than expected given the negative comments I had read. Cabins were clean and had more than enough storage space. If you can do a balcony room, go for it. Even if you can't - the views from all of the decks are breathtaking in Alaska. Try the Speciality restaurants even though there is a small cover charge - worth it. Skip the buffet for dinner. Entertainment was ok. Great kids program - kept my 6 yr old and 10 yr old niece very busy. Wrangell was the best port - still unaffected by the cruise industry since the Sun and a couple of other smaller ships are the only ones that dock there. Wrangell residents were warm and welcoming. Skagway was disappointing as it's just a bunch of tourist stores - way too many jewelry and t-shirt shops. Opt for shore excursions there - especially the White Pass Yukon train ride. Well worth it. Juneau is great too. Don't miss Mendenhall Glacier.
