Got what felt like a cold toward end of cruise. Both wife and I tested positive upon returning home for covid.

Taking test before boarding didn’t keep us from getting COVID. Had too many stations to check in

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Dumbed down main dining room food ( no lobster night, no shrimp cocktail, bland entrees). Food in specialty restaurants good and also in local.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Go carts are a blast. Great new trivia games , eg, crowd trivia.

Choir of man so so. Company men good. Female singer needs to retire. Mentalists were a joke

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Loved the observation lounge for Alaska cruises and weather. Ship was half full and yet felt crowded. Would not want to be on it if full.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Balcony extremely small. Shower head needs to be replaced that allowed more water.

Ship tip

Eat breakfast and lunch at the local
