Good, not great

Sail Date: September 12, 2016

Reviewed: 8 months ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

The food in the dining room was very good and the entertainment on the ship was enjoyable and varied. However, the on board activities left something to be desired. There was an extra cost for many activities and the free activities were not well organized. Venues sometimes changed for free activities without notification, so they were hard to find. Also, the first day at sea, the activities felt like they were geared for an old folks home. We enjoyed the glacier viewing and serving hot chocolate and banana bread in the observation area was a nice touch. The price of the cruise was great, but some things could use improvement.
