Beautiful, but.......

Sail Date: June 19, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We were fortunate to have excellent weather--clear skies and gorgeous views.  Our private balcony gave us a quiet and comfortable place to enjoy the scenery.  Ports of call were all interesting, and the State Museum in Juneau was superb. It really told the Alaska story well, with excellent displays. Food was quite good, with plenty of choices for any taste. Stateroom pleasant, comfortable and service with a smile.  But...noise everywhere. Vocal "music" chosen by ??? piped in everywhere, and turned up too loud.  Breakfast/lunch buffets with 1000 people is already full of conversation--and the canned "music" just made everyone talk louder (in many different languages). The Constellation Lounge on Deck 10 afforded panoramic views for nature lovers, and was a gathering place for naturalist talks and wildlife watching.  Nice bar, too!  But...canned music unnecessary. We don't gamble, buy jewelry, dance, play games or watch shows, so the activities offered did not interest us. Wished for more 'intellectual/educational' activity. Mickey did provide some, but always with a sales pitch---take expensive Celebrity shore excursions, buy buy buy.  We wanted to see at least some of Alaska--and we did. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Great choice!
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Buffet area for breakfast/lunch has tables with beveled edges--and they were not clean. Top Surface wiped, but old dirt in side areas.
Constant cleaning all over--but with just a bucket of water and a rag! Good way to spread germs, not avoid them.
Destinations and Excursions
Took 2 tours, recommended by , and were pleased.
Onboard Activities
Nothing of interest, except the nature talks.
Children's Programs
Ping pong/kids play area right next to smoking area. Bad choice.
We do not enjoy electronic music/shows, or vocals. Except for the violin/viola duo playing elegantly in one area, we avoided official entertainment. (My husband has a hearing issue which is exacerbated by multiple sources of noise)
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
The basic dining was very good. The expensive extra optional dining rooms/meals were not necessary.


Book shore excursions in advance. Take earplugs.
