Alaska Sailing 8/21/16

Sail Date: August 21, 2016

Reviewed: 9 months ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

Embarkation was from Seattle. The port was not prepared for processing the number of people arriving after Noon. We landed at SeaTac at Noon and it took till 4PM to get to our cabin when the ship was to have set sail. Ship muster drills were occurring which we missed. On every cruise I've been on (10+), a make up drill occurred the immediate next day but that never occurred and we were never contacted about our absence at the original drill.

Cabin / Stateroom
Bathroom toilet set at an angle not permitting an adult to face forward. Needs redesigning. Shower was roomy and well designed. Remainder of cabin was as expected for an inside berth.

The Garden Café was cramped for seating. Dining about 1 hour after the start of each setting helped somewhat.
