This was a beautiful ship with wonderful ports of call. Not a lot to do on the ship itself- bring a couple good books! Very relaxing. Alaska was a dream. Will definitely return to visit more there.

Limited as it is a small ship

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
There is a really nice (and expensive spa); not a lot of shows that were worthwhile; but the couple that were interesting were very good. Would have liked more activities and shows. Not a lot to do on the ship.

Only two were appealing to me- the magician who was fantastic and the orchestra. There really weren’t a lot of programs and shows that were appealing. A lot of Microsoft programs and boring ones.

Didn’t bring kids
