Room Type: Balcony

Overall the cruise was good.  Did not like the push to pay the extra money for the specialty restaurant.  I did not visit them.  I did not like the fact that the dress code was not enforced in the main dining rooms.

Find out early if you are going to have to be shuttled into a port. In Juneau we did not know this and we waited 2hrs to leave ship. They ask all leaving ship to wait in a public area to hear the announcements. We'll if you get a high ticket number you have a long wait. Do something fun
