The ship & staff were impressive. They do an amazing job catering to the needs of 1970 passengers. I'm not really a "cruise junky" rather I went to see the amazing sites of Alaska. Consequently, the emphasis on overeating & trying to sell you jewelry at each port of call was not welcome. In particular I objected to the 2 formal nights and was prohibited from their lobster dinner since I did not bring formal wear. Prior to the cruise we were traveling in BC and went inland after the cruise so I had alot of gear to room for the tux. This is an antiquated event that s/b done away with. I think they do it so they can sell you even more pix taken by their crew.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
I liked the variety of menu options at each meal


5 out of 5
There was always something to do (besides stuffing your face). I particularly liked the Iditarod lecture given by Libby Riddles & the 2 Alaska lectures. Trivia, karaoke, and the newlywed game were fun as well.
