Carnival did its usual fine job , but we were not 100% satisfied with two things: 

1.   There was no explicit warnings on-line or in email correspondence that in capital letters:  NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO BOARD THE SHIP IN SEATTLE WITHOUT VALID PASSPORT OR EQUIVALENT BIRTH CERTIFICATE.    We had to pay $700 on date of sailing to expedite two passport cards within a time frame of 5 hours costing us boarding of SeaTac shuttle as pre-paid for, etc.  Sailing date was one of the worst of our entire lives and we very nearly missed ship boarding altogether.  

2.   The Nouveau Steakhouse, while nice, served what we regard as very average quality food even though nicely presented.   For an Alaskan Cruise we'd expected far more fresh Alaskan seafood on board and found NONE even at the Nouveau.

needs a flatscreen TV and a music system of some kind

theater sight lines upstairs leave MUCH to be desired

Take your passport with you even if you're not disembarking at Victoria!!!!
