BirdTravels to Alaska on the Norwegian Joy

Recommended Posts

Do you have the need for speed? Time for a ride on the Joy Speedway! 

 

Reservations are required. $15 a heat or $199 for an unlimited pass. You MUST have closed shoes to ride (many people get sent back to their cabin to change footwear). They have 20 cars, 10 on the track and 10 offloading and onloading. As soon as one heat ends, the next is dispatched.

The bridge. 

Thanks once again for the help, we booked our cruise last night.  All this information has made that an easy decision and has made me super excited - you should get some sort of gift from NCL for all the free advertising.

Is anyone decorating their doors?     Seems some cruises have been told no more door decorating.

Your photos are stunning, with very crisp detail.  What camera do you use?

Any Chance you are going to the Wine Lovers show?  If you do, could you do a little review on the show and the food please?

Sorry. Our ability to drink a bottle of wine at a sitting (the combination of the 6 glasses of wine served) was over many many years ago. I tried to get the lunch menu, but was turned away by the staff.

The food at Ocean Blue has been in constant flux since NCL parted ways with Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian. And then Jose Graces. There was the post-Zakarian menu. There was the Bayamo fishy menu. There was the Bliss menu with a page of not-so-fresh oyster dishes. There was the everything-has-an-upcharge menu. The current menu, posted earlier on this thread, is actually pretty good. We had a total of four of the appetizers, two desserts, and two surf and turf. With everything covered under the SDP, the $49 surf and turf was pretty good. With an average dinner costing $90, it won’t stay this way for long.

Almost all photos were taken with an iPhone X.
