Big Smile This was our THIRD TRIP to ALASKA; and SECOND to Glacier Bay. We had a Balconey Staeroom this time and NOT a INSIDE CABIN and wrongly stated; that allowed us the comfort and warmth to view the Glacier from Our Room.  We got a really Great price on it; and paid for it in March 2016.  My Partner and EX -WIFE is fighting Breast & Bone Cancer; and is NO LONGER as Mobile as Before; therfore she requested the Balconey Stateroom to Alaska,  


We also Styaed on the Ship and bought a Pass to the Thermal Spa; which was a first for us.  SHE LOVED IT!Happy and so did I; we went twice a day; and spent a few hours.  The Last Day we saw a School Of 30+ Killer Whales Jumping out of the water.  


She stated this was the BEST CRUISE!


Cabin / Stateroom
When WE first arrived we could NOT use the TOILET DUE to a GROSSLY UNCLEAN and BROKEN TOILET SEAT; which was VERY inconveinvent. My partner COULD NOT use this Facility; and had to use a DIFFERENT Facility. We immeditately brought it to the Stewards Attention and it was cleaned. A few hours later the SEAT was COMPLETELY replaced with a NEW SEAT by Maintenace. MOST other ship stewards used rubber gloves always when they handled our ICE container; However this steward DID NOT.
