Review Summary

Crew and food were all was wonderful - very helpful, polite, kind. The cruise director was fun to listen to, very organized and worked very hard. Food great and service also. The only thing I found a little disappointing was the availability of late night activities. Most everything closed down at 11:00 PM and I would have liked to stay up later with music and dancing.

Ship Tip

Definitely eat in the dining room. Food was excellent. Not all food is available all the time but there's always something to eat. First days the lines for water and drinks can take some time so be ready for that. Cold on deck, need a coat for sure!

Ketchikan, Alaska Did not visit port

Best place to walk around and see. Friendly people, walks along waterfront great.

Love BC but very busy when all the ships are in. Have reservations decided on before you get there! Butchart is great. Go as quick as you can for most time.
