This was our first cruise and we went as a family (grandma, two parents, one child). The ship was fantastic! So much to do, plenty of variety, we only left the ship in port for a couple hours each stop. We were disappointed that the stop in Victoria was so late because a lot of attractions close at 6pm, exactly when we arrived. 


The other down side was the limited indoor pool hours for kids (one hour in the am, one in the PM). For a cruise to alaska the outside pool was not really usable, so it's not a great ship for kids. The hot tubs were also "lukewarm tubs". 


The positives included great entertainment, the Top Chef menu was insanely delicious (but limited to one!). The food is very high quality and plenty of healthy choices for special diets (Keto, Paleo, gluten or dairy-free). The service staff is amazing. The cabins were great. We would definitely cruise again.

Too short & late arrival. This should be the longest port.
