Wonderful if food taste and quality isn't your priority

Sail Date: May 20, 2016

Everything was good except the food.  It was poor quality, little choices, always cold in both the dining room and the buffet.  There also wasn't food available (except in a very small cafe with a very long line) after 9:00pm.  By the end of the cruise, everyone was complaining about it and when in port, bringing food on board to have a good meal since the ship didn't provide that.


However, if food isn't your main reason for this cruise, it is wonderful to see Alaska on a cruise ship.  Is this the best ship, NO, but it is still Alaska!  This is my 7th cruise to Alaska, I will go again, not on RC.

AWFUL, the only good thing on the ship is their bread, that is really good.


Sail this ship if you want to lose weight on a cruise, you won't be tempted to eat.
