Diamond Princess

7 Night Voyage Of The Glaciers Southbound (Whittier To Vancouver)

Sail Date: July 02, 2011

Ship: Diamond Princess

Cabin Type: Inside

Traveled As: Couple

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Review Summary

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!
