An Outstanding Cruise!

Sail Date: July 15, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We were impressed with this ship. The layout, the decor, the staterooms, and the cleanliness were first class!

Pros: The free-style dining

Cons: The smell of smoke (even smokers) in no-smoking areas

Ship Quality
The cleanliness was amazing, even in public areas and restrooms.
Food and Dining
The quality of the food was good, not excellent. The Garden Buffet didn't have enough seating for the times it was too cool to eat outside, and there was too much smoke in the Sports Bar.
Service and Staff
Overall the staff was friendly. There were a few that didn't seem to care, but there were also a few that went above and beyond. We especially enjoyed our server in the Observation Lounge. We went there every night just to see him!
Cabin / Stateroom
The layout of stateroom was really amazing. We never felt cramped. It would have been perfect, if we had had a good mattress.
Good variety of entertainment.
Juneau, Alaska
Nice city. Good shopping. The views from the tram were amazing.
Don't Miss: Tram Ride
Ketchikan, Alaska
We loved Ketchikan. Quaint town. Fun shopping. The horse-drawn trolley was great, and the guide was very knowledgeable.
Don't Miss: Horse-Drawn Trolley Tour of Ketchikan
Skagway, Alaska
Skagway was great. The history is wonderful. The train ride was fantastic.
Don't Miss: White Pass & Yukon Route Railway train ride
Prince Rupert, British Columbia
Not a very exciting town.
