The food is mediocre at best. The Chinese style restaurant sucks. This is the fourth cruise we have so we get picky. There is no free lobster not even for one day. I booked the cruise during 7/4 week and paid the premium. But the ship has nothing to show for this particular holiday. There are not many activities for people like us on the ship. The theater was greatly underused during the daytime. It stopped at 4 ports but two of them for only 5 or 6 hours, too short for a long shore excursion. The glacier bay day is short too. I'd prefer the ship stay a bit longer at the national park.The staff, as usual, are quite friendly and provided excellent service. The inside cabin, man, is very cramped. Overall, a so-so cruise.

Cabin / Stateroom

Cabin is very cramped for two people. We can hardly turn around with a queen bed and a small desk/chair. The TV is small and low definition and so out-of-date.

Ship Tip

Garden cafe is quite bad.
