Great Vacation

Sail Date: July 13, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Suite

I booked a last minute vacation for my mother and I. There was plenty to do on board and each stop had shore excurisions suited towards our various tastes and physial abilities. We sailed past two glaciers, so the balcony was well worth the extra expnse for great viewing of glaciers and wildlife.

Most restraunts are at the aft of the boat. Our prenthouse was forward, so alot of walking for meals. Suggest booking ner the middle of the ship to bea nea all activities and ameneties. Cagney's steak house wel worth the dinner upgrade.
