This is a nice ship. It is well maintained and the food was very good. There was a naturalist on board that added a lot to the experience

The food was quite good, plentiful, with nice presentation.

We enjoyed the evening shows. Some of the daytime programs turned out to be promotions to buy more things. It's clear that the cruise line has ties to some merchants on shore.

Service and Staff

Most were wonderful. Anytime we asked for help, we got it.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The crew was always working on cleaning and sprucing up the interior and exterior of the ship. We felt that they really cared about how the shipped looked.

We did find that a lot of people got lost on board. It was not always easy to find the right deck to go to, and one could not access some areas without going up or down.

Take a bike trip. It is well worth the time and expense. Others we spoke to really enjoyed the train ride to the pass.

Go to the totem pole park. Also, the lumber jack show was a lot of fun. The shopping is more of the same. After a couple of ports, you've seen it all!

Pros: Up close to glaciers and wildlife
