Has anyone been on the Norwegian Bliss Cruise Ship that goes to Alaska, and it lasts seven days?

I want to know that perfect order to do as much stuff as possible on the cruise, while knowing exactly what to do next.


If you go on this or any other cruise you will get a cruise planner and daily itinerary with details of where you should be each day and what the choices are whether you go ashore or stay on board. We did Alaska last year with Princess - simply awesome.


I did the Celebrity Millennium. We did 5 nights touring on our own prior to the cruise. We hiked on the glacier in Matanuska, did the 8 hour bus tour of Denali, went to the Iditarod museum in Wasilla, shopped in Talkeetna, then took the dome train from Anchorage to Seward. We did a glacier/wildlife tour by sea in Seward, then got on the ship. The tour from the ships are very much a matter of what you want to spend. For instance, you can spend $300 pp and take a helicopter to Mendenhall glacier, or rent a car and drive yourself for about $80. We went whale watching in Icy Strait, which was very cool. We snorkeled in June. Not the best snorkeling, I just wanted to be able to say I did it.
