TRIP OF A LIFETIME

Sail Date: August 20, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

THE SHIP HAD A WONDERFUL VARIETY OF FOOD AND RESTAURANTS AND THE FREESTYLE CRUISING WAS WONDERFUL, HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE CARD GOT CROSSED WITH ANOTHER PASSENGER AND THE STAFF CLEARED EVERYTHING UP WITHIN A HALF-HOUR AND DID NOT HAVE A PROBLEM AFTER THAT. FOOD WAS EXCELLENT AND WE MADE USE OF MOST OF THE FACILITIES ABOARD. HAD A LEISURE DAY OF DOING NOTHING BUT ENJOYING THE VIEW TO THE GLACIER AND IT WAS FABULOUS, PICTURES DO NOT DO IT JUSTICE. WOULD TAKE THE SAME CRUISE AGAIN COULD NOT DO IT ALL THIS TIME. STAFF WAS ACCOMODATING IN EVERY WAY AND HELPFUL FROM THE MINUTE WE WERE ON THE SHIP TO THE DEPARTURE DAY.

Pros: CREW-FREESTYLE DINING -SHORE EXCURSIONS-ONBOARD ENTERTAINMENT

Cons: NONE
