Review summary

My cruising experience says, this is the bottom of the barrel.   The ship was old and it showed - problems with the commodes not flushing (almost daily) and other signs of needing a re-haul - peeling paint, cracking shower walls, etc.    The food was more like a basic diner.  Obviously pre-frozen and cheap.   Yes, there were a few nice touches thrown in, but really only one night was good.   Costco has better cheesecake, the chicken breast was no better than a McDonald's sandwich, the ice cream was really ice milk.   The entertainment was so so.    And at every turn, they were trying to get you to spend more.   Internet service for the week was $260!    Alcohol and soda all cost astronomical amounts.     They tried to have some extras...   you come back to the ship and they offer you ice water or hot cocoa, but they only gave you about 1/8 a cup of cocoa!    Even when you are observing the glacier, they come around with cocoa, BUT, you had to buy it!!    Not once did I hear them announce any wildlife sightings.   A few passengers saw whales, even an entire pod of orcas, but the crew sure wasn't there to help point out these amazing creatures.     Last, but not least...   while the staff was friendly, it was hard to find people that could answer your questions.   Either their knowledge was limited to their very specific area or they didn't speak English!     Even asked the dining room staff about one of the entrees and they didn't know what was included with the dish.      The excursion and port 'expert' was unaware of the brewery at Icy Straits...   even said if there is one, he would know about it!   Well there is one, and obviously he didn't know about it.     Needless to say, we were very disappointed in the cruise!
