  1. I had made up my mind last night and decided to go with the Joy! Although the benefits I get of captain’s club on celebrity are great, NCL has a good offer of a balcony stateroom with all 4 perks included. I guess I have to put the idea of an indoor pool behind me but I am sure when we depart Seattle and when we’re in Victoria, the weather will be warm enough for me to venture outside. I hear you...my last cruise was on Princess in February 2018 for a partial Panama Canal trip and boy oh boy were we ever bored...not thinking of going on another Princess ship and I haven’t been on HAL but I think it’ll be the same. I like NCL for the wealth of activities too. I am excited to be back on Norwegian and yes, I agree, reviews are mostly of negative attitudes and one stranger’s view could be completely opposite to yours. Thank you for your input
  2. Looking at Alaskan cruises right now for July...deciphering between Vancouver and Seattle, and also ships...last time I sailed on NCL was in 2011 when the Epic was brand new, and before that my first cruise in 2009 was on the Jewel, both were great experiences. Since then I’ve been on RCL, Celebrity...but as for ships in Alaska and itinerary I’m leaning towards the Joy this time. I’m iffy now because I have read not so great reviews on both Joy and NCL and my last experience with this line was 8 years ago...Joy looks like it has lots to do but being that Alaska is colder, I enjoyed the indoor pool on the Celebrity Solstice last time I was in Alaska...does the Joy have an indoor pool as well? This will also be a deciding factor for me
