Review summary

What a wonderful trip. We recommend to go now while you can enjoy all the activities and just plan to go again! It was the trip of a lifetime ...

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Our first trip as platinum members and it was worth the wait. Easiest experience so far.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The first week the food was above average, but the second week was not so good. Most of our table of 10 did not return. Seems like they were inventing dishes.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Only negative was on the return to warmer waters a group of 45-50 were tossing around a small nerf football (aft pool) from hot tub to hot tub to upper decks when someone would yell to throw it up. Couples were laughing and it was fun until an over zealous security guard threatened us with disciplinary measures if we didn’t stop. Not handled well at all.

Skagway, Alaska

5 out of 5
Beautiful town and the Skagway Brewery was great. Try the Blue Tip Spruce beer and the fish and chips! Best ever.

Disembarkation

1 out of 5
Buses were running late and people were cutting in line. Many were being very vocal about the situation. Very long wait.
