Great ports and boat but additional tips are crazy high

Love the cruising ports and excursions. The staff was fabulous! Loved the boat and all the dinning options. Also LOVE the shows and entertainment. The only reason I did not give this cruise 5 stars is because of the tipping aspects and always wanting more money. If you order a coffee, they charge you .70 cents to make it, and a spot for additional tip and you are also paying $13.50 per day for tips. They come over the intercom WAY TOO much and it mainly for the boat to make money like Time for Bingo, or Deal or NO Deal. They all cost money. Bowling cost also. Even if you buy the speciality dinning option that includes 18% tips, they ask for additional tips and additional chef tips. It seems like this boat continues to ask for more money. But if you want to see Alaska, this trip is a must, just be careful of tipping!

Loved the Garden Cafe for daily meals. The Miso soup was fabulous. The Asian restaurant was also good. For specialty dinning the Japanese restaurant was the best!!
