Works for me They wouldn't let the behemoths into Alaska would they? Wouldn't the be too much for the environment?
The Norwegian Bliss behemoth is starting Alaska service next summer--big enough for a go-kart track. The itineraries include Sawyer Glacier. But they could take up more than usual docking space in places like Juneau and require tendering from other ships. In Seattle their pier is separate from HAL's, but it means 4,000 passengers taking up hotel space and flights. I went on another NCL behemoth, the Getaway, on its first season on the Baltic itinerary out of Copenhagen, and it made things pretty crowded in port cities and filled up hotels in Copenhagen.
