Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Cabin: 8569

Favorite part was gathering with family for dinner and shows( which were very good).   Dismayed to see that certain menu items had a surcharge. Overall the food in all areas was good. Service was very good but setting up a big table for all  was problematic. We usually had two tables of eight which was OK. Perhaps there could have been more things (movies, games, etc. for young teens. More mature persons would like some quiet places to read or relax without a constant flow of people passing.  Most lounges had something else going on, like Bingo, sales pitches, demonstrations. The Library was small.

Seattle, Washington
Liked the Space Needle, Greta Wheel, Underground Tour. Friendly helpful people and funny cab drivers.
Ketchikan, Alaska
Lots to see. Tongas Museum was a plus.
Juneau, Alaska
Mt. Robert Tram was special. Town too commercial.
Victoria, British Columbia
Beautiful and a great place to wander around.


We preferred the Azura Dining Room to the Tzar. They were more willing to acomodate our crowd and it seems cozier. Breakfast on the Back Deck (weather permitting) was very pleasant.
