Review Summary

We enjoyed a suite on the fantail. It offers views that are not possible from the side of the ship. While not ideal for photography it is a beautiful view. Alaska is one the most majestic places I have ever be witness too. If you have the opportunity to see it, it is not to be missed. Royal Caribbean is a good cruise line and we are almost at Pinnacle level but we have been sailing with Norwegian as of late and I believe it to be better in a variety of ways. Royal over the years has regularly cut perks it use to give freely. It has taken away form the experience and I suppose if you have never experienced them you will not miss them. I would probably use Norwegian for our next visit to Alaska.

Ship Tip

If you are in a suite use Chops for breakfast. It is much nicer than fighting the crowds in the Wind Jammer.
