Review summary

This was our first time cruising with this fleet. Although we were alittle disappointed we really enjoyed the staff. Our Captain was wondeful.The food in the buffet was ok.The desserts were alittle bland and had no taste to them,We really enjoyed the few restaurants we went to The Aqua,The LaTorta(Italian) and the Versalle.(The other restaurants you had to pay a cover charge $20 each.)The staff was wonderful and the food was great.We booked a Oceanveiw room which we don't usually do(we love the Balcony)but thought we would give it a whirl.Well they never put the twin beds together so we slept apart the whole cruise.But all in all Alaksa is a must see it is unexplainable!! Please take one extra day and stay in Seattle overnight before the cruise it's truley a Wonderful Place.Hotel, Doubletree right near the pier!!!! I wish we could take the bed and pillows home.Wonderful people,dine @ Elliotts on the pier you won't forget it. Alaska was like a dream!!!!!
