I absolutely love the free style dining! It was great to have the flexibility. It was excellent having the 13th floor garden cafe available most times of the day.

Onboard Activities

The daily activities in the atrium were fantastic. Note: bingo was too expensive

Cabin / Stateroom

The sliding glass door on our balcony was incredible; it blocked out sound - there was no whistling from the wind.

Ship tip

Be sure to check your charges. We were charged tips at the bars despite having the drink package and prep-paid gratuities

Ports of call

Seattle, Washington

Budget extra spending money. This city is expensive. If scheduling allows, take the time to rent a car and drive up to Olympic National Park: it is amazing!

Juneau, Alaska

We took the ATV Davidson glacier tour. It was fantastic; definitely a once in a life time experience.

Cruise Glacier Bay

We were able to see glaciers directly from our balcony and utilize the helipad to view Johns Hopkins glacier. Incredible!

Ketchikan, Alaska

5 out of 5
It is certainly a town that has it's own definition of humor. Definitely visit Rain Barrell LLC which is a locally owned store. The owners are friendly, helpful and have better prices

Victoria, British Columbia

4 out of 5
Very short trip. The government building is pretty at night. Be sure to take the bus vs trying to walk to downtown. There is not sufficient time for the walk.
