May 2016 - Seven Seas Mariner to Alaska
Like most high end cruises the food is very good. I enjoyed every meal with exceptional service. Maybe found a dish or two that did not suit our taste but by all standards it was still a well prepared dish. Wife is picky any they allowed special orders that deviated from the menu. Free excursions were all very nice. Do not miss the Georges inlet crab fest. I ate a ton of the delectable crabs. Sweet crabmeat without any spice. The Alaskan lodge adventure and sea fest was also very good but beware they mix other food into the meal that includes meat. If your diet does not include sausage the food will not be for you? The boat ride was nice and we even spotted whales. Something my back appreciates is there are free laundry facilities so you do not need to carry so many clothes. Free detergent and irons also. White pass scenic railroad was a terrific excursion also. Onboard shows were good. Not too much action in casino. Onboard credit was used in the spa since there is a very limited selection in the one gift boutique. Overall a very enjoyable cruise. Cannot say the extra money spent on concierge service was worth it.
