Review summary

there is nothing to say except wonderful and amazing. From the moment you arrive you are met by courteous, friendly smiling staff.  Our stateroom was meticulous,.

We were fortunate other then some fog the weather was fabulous - we sat on our veranda in shorts and Tshirts at 9 pm watching the glaciers go by.

The food in every venue was superb, we were more then satisfied with the wine selection, enjoyed winning and then losing in the casino, the nightly entertainment and the guest lecturers. One piece of advice book more then one glacier tour or those once in a lifetime experiences - our dog sledding excursion was canceled because of heavy fog. 

Id suggest booking your excursions through Crystal ( maybe it cost a little more) but they are so organized and if there is a problem they take care of it - no stress.

  There is absolutely nothing negative, go enjoy !

Seaplane tour is expensive, and long. The scenery is beatiful but you need to decide if it's worth it.
