Dining rooms and food are great. Did not go to specialty reapstaurants. Only used buffet on first afternoon.This is a zoo! Give tables a number. Give number to,people for table when ready to be seated. Hand in number when finished eating. Repeat fir new arrivals.

Entertainment

Enjoyable

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff was happy, except at excursion desk. Sales for future cruises personnel were not pushy, but not very interested in my request for a party if 10 for 2019 either.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
Poor design and utilitarian materials. No sign of luxury.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
As expected. Bathroom could use a fan. I bumped my head on unused bunk.

Ship tip

Avoid the buffet and specialty dining. Main dining rooms are very nice, with many tables for two, to avoid forced congeniality.

Ports of call

Seattle, Washington

3 out of 5
In and out. Hotels are too expensive near the port. Arrived and departed with Amtrak

Icy Strait Point (Hoonah), Alaska

4 out of 5
Great development. Excursions were overpriced. Poor marshalling for excursion departures.

Juneau, Alaska

3 out of 5
Too much emphasis on shopping. Gondola is overpriced.

Victoria, British Columbia

5 out of 5
Be clearer on distances from ship to,popular spots, and pricing for transportation available, Ahead of time.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Walked off with bags
