Alaskan Cruise

Sail Date: July 23, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

This was my first cruise so take that into consideration. Food was great 85% of the time and sub-par 15% of the time. Suggest you stay with seafood and avoid the steaks which are grade B at best. Surprised to see extra charges for soda and coffeee drinks, and of course all alcohol. Shows were better than expected. Rooms were cozy but clean and efficient. Beds... were the worse ever and the pillows were more than bad. Like pillowcases filled with random lumps of stuffing.

Pros: Great views, excellent staff

Cons: Worst matresses and pillows from HELL

Whale watch for sure. DON'T book via the cruise line or Delta as you will get 1/2 to 1/3 off on site. This applies to all ports.
