There are staterooms to accommodate every style, including the most exclusive and luxurious accommodations to hit the high seas—The Haven by Norwegian®. But that’s just the beginning. Norwegian Jewel comes complete with swimming pools, hot tubs, a spa, a casino, and tons of things to see and do. And with more dining options than days of the week, no one will ever go hungry. Discover more choices and the freedom to do it your way. We call it Freestyle Cruising®. You’ll just call it the best vacation ever.
A PLUS: This ship goes into dry dock on October of 2018. The Jewel will be bright and shiny an ready to glide through the glaciers.
Filled with icy fjords that tower over the Pacific Ocean while snowy peaks stretch towards the horizon, Alaska feels boundless. Yet incredibly intimate as you watch eagles nesting along coastal forests. Norwegian lets you explore all sides of Alaska the way locals see it, up close and personal on an Alaskan cruise. Discover Alaska on this 7-day cruise aboard Norwegian Jewel. Depart Seward for some of Alaska's most scenic destinations. Watch for humpback whales, porpoise and sea lions in the waters surrounding Icy Strait Point. Enjoy a traditional salmon bake in Juneau. Experience the thrill of dog sledding in Skagway. Learn about Alaska's rich logging history by watching a lumberjack show. Then cruise the Inside Passage to arrive in Vancouver.

day 2 - June 11th - Hubbard Glacier
The longest river of ice in North America, the Hubbard Glacier is also one of the most active glaciers of its kind in Alaska. The glacier has vibrant blue coloring throughout and is 70 miles long and more than 6 miles wide. Listen as sheets of ice separate themselves from the glacier, known as, galloping, and crash into the sea with a loud crack that echoes for miles.
Day 3 - June 12th - Icy Strait Point
The Icy Strait Point experience combines authentic regional culture with incredible natural beauty. Enjoy Tlingit dancing and art. Or get closer than you'd ever imagine to humpback whales and brown bears in the wild. Work up a wilderness hunger and satisfy it with fresh Dungeness crab.

Prepare to experience all the beauty and majesty of the Alaskan wilderness. Travel through Tracy Arm Fjord and witness the awe-inspiring beauty of Sawyer Glacier. Juneau, Alaska’s remote capital, sits in the state’s panhandle, at the base of 3,819-ft. Mount Roberts. It’s a popular cruise-ship stop, reachable only by boat or seaplane. A tram carries visitors 1,800 feet up Mount Roberts to an alpine area with hiking trails, wildflowers and views of Gastineau Channel.
Day 5 - June 14th - Skagway
With its colorful history Skagway is one of the most interesting and bustling towns of the Inside Passage. Skagway was born during the Gold Rush of 1898 when more than 10,000 adventurers used the community as the starting point of their hunt for gold. Now, nature has reclaimed the land, offering visitors the opportunity to explore the rainforest, visit historic ruins, breathe in the fresh mountain air.
Day 6 - June 15th - Ketchikan
Ketchikan was originally founded as a Native American fishery before growing during the 1898 Gold Rush to the Klondike. Much of the town's colorful past is still evident, both in the city center and especially in the nearby Native American villages, where visitors will be enchanted by colorfully carved totem poles and the fascinating legends that surround them.
