Don't purchase the "Soda Drink" package although there is a 50c discount on soft drinks purchased with this card you only get a glass of warm soft drink in a glass 3/4 filled with ice, the result is you pay for a can of soft during three times over before you get a full glas of beverage - RIP OFF!

Wait to sail until the ship is updated. The shipboard entertainment systems (TVs and in cabin entertainment) are outdated. The furniture is very clean, but worn.

If you crave overall entertainment; this is not for you. Check the age demographic.

Compared with other cruises on HAL and other lines the officers were not very visible. The Captain and other staff only visited with passengers on limited occasions, which is unusual. Managing by walking around is a well established tradition in HAL and other cruise lines. I recommend cabins on floors 6-8, midship or sunset as most attractive. Deck 10 would be OK but access is a bit funny, as not all elevators or stairs reach that deck.

Book your preferred excursions early, especially the expensive ones with seaplanes, helicopter sightseeing.. are sold out fast

Small outside hidden area in front of gym that was great for viewing glacier bay. Almost empty. Don’t tell anyone. Use the side elevators, faster, less crowded and good ocean view.

Explore the ship. There are many single staircases to the higher decks that are not obvious. Also, I was surprised to find out that Deck 4 Forward had access to the bow of the ship for amazing views.

Applies to any ship: Be kind to other passengers by coughing/sneezing in your sleeve and contiuously wash your hands. Treat the crew the same way you would want to be treated.
