Review summary

From board to disembark the staff was fantastic. The main pools are heated. I love the fact you can get 2 drinks at a time. I did not like you they charge you for bottled water even if you had a drink package. The views are amazing, get a professional camera. Bring binoculars. Your internet will not work at glacier bay. The specialty restaurants were good. Ocean blue and the pasta place were just ok and not spectacular. The spa is a must with hot rooms, salt rooms, heated lounge chairs. Our king mattress was extremely hard and we were in a spa mini suite. Take your time, go out of your comfort zone and have the time if your life!

Ocean Blue

I really dont understand the up charge here. It was not over the top good compared to other sea food joints. I thought the scallops we ordered needed a little more time. It was in my opinion just OK not spectacular.

Los Lobos

4 out of 5

Fantastic all around. The views from or first night was amazing. The corn on the cobb is a MUST HAVE here. I ordered the mahi mahi tacos....ok flavor but the fish was suuuuuperr dry.

The Local

Do not order the fish and chips it looked like something from a school cafeteria. Pretzel rolls ok and a decent attempt at wings. Service was very slow here.

Garden Cafe

Lots of food options but it really lacked any kind of seasoning; it was really bland. We at there lunches. It was clean and I like how they keep sandwiches in a glass encasement vs other lines.

Onboard Activities

Mandara Spa

4 out of 5

This is one of the reasons we chose this ship. The spa pool was well designed and I loved the water fall, brilliant idea. The hot rooms were hit or miss on the temp. The steam room was refreshing. The salt room was cool but on the last day you could tell it was just an air room lacking salt. The heated lounge chairs was such a great idea facing the aft of the ship. I highly recommend the spa

Bliss Casino
