would have like to see more guest appearances, such as the comedian and the magican/comedian

Children's Programs

the pool was dominated by children; need an adult indoor pool

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
the courtesy were better at answering questions/concerns in person; but there was always a long line. There was a problem with the room type, because of the type of room that you verbally promised to me; but it could not be verified because use did not put it in writing.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
I got lost everyday; it would have been great if there was a map on the back of the room key card, or maps on every elevator, attrium, and hallways

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
cabin was changed to 3422, because you stated that we would have a tub and a shower, but we were assigned 3428, which was hadicapped equipped with wheel chair assessible shower; no tub. the room was very old, needs remodeling, old worn carpet push button toilets, electrical outlet problems. i fear for my health saftey because of lack of paper products having to touch everything with my hands

Ship tip

prepare yourself with essentials that you have a home or you will pay for everything, including bottled water, soda, coffee, and any other drinks

4 out of 5
need more time

Ketchikan, Alaska Did not visit port

due to an incident with a crew member missing, was unable to visit Ketchikan; very dissapointed. I would like a refund of this portion on the cruise, plus a refund for the interruption of a paid cruise.

Victoria, British Columbia

3 out of 5
not enough time, too crowded with three other cruise lines, long lines, backed streets
