A good cruise, but not great.

Review SummaryWe really enjoyed the ship. There were many activities to see and great entertainment. However, we wished that there had been more than "3" Penny slot machines in the Casino. During the time at sea when the activities were not the ones we would like to see, we would have liked to play a few Penny slots. However, an older man and his wife (in a wheel chair) were at 2 of the 3 machines all day long.
The rooms and room service were great. Much better than expected.
The meals were also pretty good, except that we could not always tell what we were ordering for the evening meal, and I got sick on the food twice, since I am diebetic, and don't take fat very well.

Ports of Call
Pros: Going to and getting in close to see Hubbard Glacier.
Cons: We did not stay enough time in the ports to see things. In Skagway, we went on the White Pass Train, but we would have also liked to have had time to take a boat out to see the shales, and in Ketchikan, we would have liked to have time to see the native Alaskan villege with the Totem poles.
