Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
Review SummaryExcellent, everything I had hoped for in a 1st cruise.
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
The ships excursions desk personnel could do better, responded in a curt manner when I inquired about the fact that most shops would be closed when we arrived in Victoria BC. I got basically, "that's just the way it is" and didn't want to venture on info not related to the excursions offered.
Cabin / Stateroom
Ports of Call
Don't Miss: No answer there, plenty of great excursions, hard to pick one.
Don't Miss: The local chocolate
Don't Miss: Great jewelry buys!
Don't Miss: Whale watching, glacier viewing
Pros: The glaciers, the scenery, the wildlife
Cons: Wish there were more elegance, i.e. ice sculptures, non-consumable chocolate sculptures, an actual ball, or formal. TOO much accent on mass consumption.
