I enjoyed my Alaskan Cruise. I normally cruise warmer climate, but wanted a change. It was truly and enjoyable cruise. I truly enjoyed the cooler temperature of Alaska and Victoria, Canada.

Overall we had a great time. We had some customer service snags which were never satisfied. I blame this on customer service staff nut having the proper authority to make decisions. We spent three hours on separate days dealing with onboard credit we were supposed to get and never did. Never resolved even though it was an issue created by Royal Caribbean.

It was great! Our family had a blast and 3 out of 6 of us experienced our first cruise. We loved taking dance lessons, getting a massage, getting a schedule of events each morning and looking forward to good food

The cruise was fine. I don't know if I will go through American again to book it though. Royal Caribbean didn't seem to want to help with anything because we booked through American. And American didn't give us any pointers, like when to schedule flights, when we booked it.

The breakfast in the dining room was excellent. We went there the last 2 days...wish we had done it sooner.

Don't get in a hurry to buy gifts or extra services (spa, upgraded dining, etc.) Each night you will get a sheet outlining the next day's activities that will have specials - like half price spa day! Significant savings.
