1 cruise (first)
Maybe a bit unfair rating in some ways given this was our first cruise. We wanted to see Alaska and seemed like the best way to see it given the remoteness. We know going in we were likely not 'cruise people' and it was confirmed. It was not that it was terrible. it is just not for us. That said we did have a good time, great service, and some great times with our grand daughter. I very much enjoyed the sailing part, seeing the amazing nature, seeing marine life, and that part of it. So we put the balcony to great use and it was a chance for quiet away from the noise of the ship. It felt to us a bit like a Las Vegas Casino on the water which is not our thing. But the plus is the ship has great people. The entire crew were friendly and helpful which offset some concerns.
