Review summary

We enjoyed our cruise. The huge screen by the pool area was great and we enjoyed watching a couple movies there. The biggest complaint was the buffet food. Extremely bland. I’m sure it’s hard to cook for that amount of people and all their different tastes, we were just surprised by it. The whole staff was just wonderful and the ship is very clean and nice!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
We enjoyed the main dining room food. However the buffet food was not very good. There was a huge selection, but surprisingly, I would only call a couple things I ate there good. And that’s on a 7 day cruise, eating there usually twice a day! There were 6 of us and we all felt the same way! As far as alcohol - all drinks were excellent!

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Had a hot stone massage which was fabulous. However, a 15% gratuity was automatically added on to my bill which I didn’t know about until after I handed a cash 20% gratuity to my masseuse, which was annoying.


Did not see any entertainment.

Children's Programs

No children traveled with us.

Even though we didn’t have a window, it was a nice room. Our mattress and pillows were absolutely WONDERFUL! Extremely comfortable.

Ship tip

Can’t think of anything.

Vancouver (Canada Place), British Columbia

This is where we departed from so we didn’t really spend time there. However, their airport leaves a lot to be desired!

Tracy’s Crab Shack - food was really good, and Whale Watching which we really enjoyed. Saw several humpbacks and some Orcas! Definitely worth the $.

Skagway, Alaska

ATV excursion. You really can’t see much on the trail due to the trees. There were 2 pullover spots that had nice views though.
