Review summary

Staff were amazing, food was good although portions were pretty small (you could ask for more) Dress code in the dining room is non existent, one guy was in Paint covered ripped jeans and scruffy t-shirt, even on formal nights (gala nights) some people in fitness/training clothes or in hoodies and jeans! Entertainment was not good, so if you like going to the shows don't count on this cruise! Overall dissapointed but Alaska is stunning!

Entertainment

What entertainment? Lack of shows, and the shows that were on were poorly put together with no atmosphere at all! Sail away party was a joke! It was just people on the deck wandering around no entertainment or even entertainment staff getting people excited at sailing off, why is it advertised as a sail away party?

If you go on a cruise to enjoy the entertainment, forget going on this one!
