7 Night Alaska Sawyer Glacier (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 26, 2016
Ship: Explorer of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 9377
Traveled As: Family (older children)

Needs improvement :  getting on the ship took over 1.5 hours. Very long lines and too slow. Need more fitness clases.  Getting out of customs took too long. Need better indoor cinema options. This boat was suited for the Caribbean having the big screen in the cold elements. Previous cruise we took had indoor cinemas with movies offered twice daily.  Wished we had more time in ports and longer shore trips to see all sights. 


Favorite parts of cruise:  variety of food was good. Good mix of live entertainment.

Needed more options and more movies indoors. They had the use of an indoor theater and didnt use it for movies enough.

Ship was very clean but obviously was planned out for hotter weather with no indoor cinemas. Bars were mostly in middle of ship versus being situated next to windows with ocean views.
