Review Summary

We had perfect weather throughout most of our 8-day cruise that departed from Vancouver. It only drizzled for maybe a couple of hours near Tracy Arm Fjord, but weather for the rest of the trip was gorgeous, especially when cruising Glacier Bay National Park (Park Rangers actually came onboard that day). We were the only ship at Juneau and Skagway on this mid-May cruise, and we did not see very many young children, except maybe a few teenagers. There were about 3 or 4 ships at Ketchikan, which was our last port before we sailed back to Seattle. Crew and staff were all very friendly. Ship appeared old, but has all the basic amenities as expected, including self-laundry facility. We booked our shore excursions through Carnival website before sailing, and noticed their prices on the ship were about $20 higher each. We also pre-ordered a case of 12-pack bottled water that we carried off ship on excursions, which were very handy.

Mid ship. No window, but room was spacious and we did not feel claustrophobic. Plenty of closet space and clothes hangers.

Ship Tip

Self-service laundry rooms on several decks, including decks 5-7. $3 to wash and another $3 to dry using Sail and Sign card.
