Room Type: Oceanview

Weather is beginning to change so we dressed in layers. Bring rain gear. We tried all but one of the restaurants. Food was exceptional at Moderno Brazilian and Cagney's Steakhouse, good at La Cucina Italian and Le Bristo French, poor at Teppanyaki Japanese. The Stardust entertainment (main stage) was fairly good to very good, depending on the show. The solo piano and guitar players were very good. Some of the group bands were not that good. the excursions were great. We went to the ziplines the first day. Day 2 we free-lanced it. Ended up going on a trip to see a glacier. On Day 3 we went on a 5 mile bike ride/2 mile walk/2 mile boat ride. Ended the day at a brewery.

Bottom line, the trip was a very nice. It is a cruise, so the cabin will be small and the bed is bad. But, for the most part, the staff was very friendly and very accommodating. The food was plentiful and good. I would highly recommend this trip. Safe travels.
