Great Locations and Overall Experience

Sail Date: July 02, 2011

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The ship was nice and pretty updated. Not the newest ship but still very nice. Staff needs hospitality training overall. Servers and stweards were excellent but some of the middle level staff did not remember that we were all the guests. Food was a little oily and fatty overall. There were very little options for breakfast and lunch. We felt we were always being upsold to buy drinks, sodas, coffees, etc. But overall Alaska was beautiful and the cruise was great!

Pros: Great ports

Cons: staff could have been trained better
