Lovely ship, nice large stateroom with a bath and plenty of storage. Food and service top notch. Poor entertainment apart from the illusionist who was very good. Cruise director did not interact with the guests only ever saw her twice.

Lovely ship, great for walking on deck 3, one mile is 3 laps. Spotlessly clean. All food in the buffet is served to you, which prevents germs spreading. Large cabin with bath, plenty of storage for clothes.

Deck 10 aft best location for viewing the glaciers. You will need lots of warm clothes plus a blanket to wrap around your legs which you can get on board the ship
