Review summary

Overall very enjoyable! I wished everything on the boat was not so costly. Most photographers did not seem professional and pictures were too pricey. You should offer some less expensive packages as options. Also bingo was too pricey. Everyone was very friendly and helpful! Thanks for a great time!!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our waiter Rommel Alejo and Jr. waiter Marlon Villegas was excellent. Very attentive went above and beyond to provide whatever we wanted. Very impressive that they remembered that we drank tea/coffee and we liked soft rolls. Very professional!! They were the BEST!!!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
LOVED how clean everything was. Well maintained. Very impressed that everyone was required to wash their hands before going into the Buffett. Very smart requirement.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Very clean and well maintained. Only wished the shower was bigger. Need a better shower curtain. Could not help but get water all over the bathroom floor. Prefer to get a balcony room next time but was discouraged by my travel agent. This was the most disappointment of the entire trip.

Ship tip

Take more casual clothes for the boat. Get a room with a balcony. Choose anytime dining.

Ports of call

Whittier (Anchorage), Alaska

We rode a bus to Anchorage from the airport. First impression of Alaska was not good. Hotel was fine but the town was dirty and we were tired and hungry. Need to have a quick buffet or food choice after flying all day. Everywhere we went was crowded and did not realize how expensive the food is in Alaska.

Favorite port! Loved this town. We took the train, panned for gold and had the BBQ lunch. This was very enjoyable.

Juneau, Alaska

5 out of 5
Town was crowded. Enjoyed our excursion. Whale watching and Salmon bake was superb. Wished we would have had a little more time to look around Juneau.

Very cute town. Weather was awesome. Saw lots of bald eagles. Rode a boat to Silver King Lodge for a seafood feast. Very enjoyable and beautiful scenery.

Organized and fast but did not realize I needed the ticket to bus to leave the ship. Please put on the ticket to take with you to get on the bus.
