Review summary

Food drinks package and staff wonderful, not many enrichment talks. Seemed very crowded not enough deck or relaxation space for that many people.Library lumped in with noisy games room ,not condusive to trying to read gave it up as a bad job in the end.I feel the ship should have waited much longer for the fog to clear he hardly waited and you could see that the fig was burning off and we would have been able to sail the Trcy Arm fjord and seen the glaciers from the water the only reason I booked the cruise me and most of the people I spoke to Very disappointed would rather have waited and missed or arrived late at Victoria.
