Smooth sailing with mature passengers. An Alaskan cruise is a must for everyone, and this 92000 ton ship is great. Fabulous scenery with good food to boot. Walking through the ports of call is a great way to experience Alaska and Whittier's history as a military town in WW2 is fascinating. If you have more time, take the extended excursion to Denali Park to experience the northern lights and polar bears.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The pizza and small ice cream cone snacks on the pool deck was just right


5 out of 5
Good mix and high quality. One of the singers must frequent the midnight buffet. Fire drill done professionally.

Smiles everywhere.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Big enough to be stable with not too many passengers and crew on board.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Can't expect a King size bed with a hot tub. The closet and shower were functional.

Pros: Awesome tranquility in the glaciers and the fiords

Cons: Sushi was mediocre, and excessive photo shoots, bridge games can be better
