Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We ate at the Haven restaurant most days. It was always first rate. Cagney’s was great. Food Republic has good Asian type food. The buffet was good. It was always really busy and hard to find a table but food was consistently good.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The Haven courtyard suite with large balcony was perfect for an Alaska cruise. We were on port side. Stayed in room for most of Glacier Bay tour and it was absolutely beautiful from our balcony.

Ship tip

The Observation lounge is a great place to enjoy the cruise scenery and relax.
