Review summaryI would do this cruise again. It was amazing! We saw a ton of whales as we just cruises along into Juneau. The entertainment on board was very good. The food and beverage staff were all very attentive and pleasant. I would do it agin for sure.
Food and Dining
This was our main dining room for dinner. We had great meals and great staff serving us. They were all wonderful!
It does get crowded, but what else would you expect for a main eating venue. The variety of foods was great. They even had an entire gluten free area that was nice.
The Café @ Two70
Great coffee and finger foods. Good wraps and other sandwiches.
A stop almost every night. Great pizza and what more could you ask for after a few drinks later at night than to grab a slice!!
We ate here once and the dogs were good. They had a small variety too. Great lunch spot.
Bartenders were always friendly and attentive. Drinks were always made well.
The drinks were well made and I did not have to wait long for service at all.
North Star Bar
The drinks were made well each time I visited.
The coffee was good and the baked goods were amazing. My daughter loved the macrons.
Very unique and neat and experience. The drink selection was extensive, alcoholic and non-alcoholic, and you can make your own creations as well.
This was possibly the longest cruise ship track I have used. It does get crowded later in the day with people walking around, but it’s generally good. I also like that it ramps up to go around the front of the ship.
I went there twice and each time my issue was promptly addressed to my satisfaction.
Rock Climbing Wall
We climbed twice and found it to be quite challenging. The staff was very helpful.
The place to be in the center of the ship. It does get somewhat crowded though. Beautiful area with a lot of good venues around. I would recommend less sales items put out by the cruise line as it does make it difficult to move at times.
The kids on our trip spent the majority of their time here. It is a great multipurpose area with a lot to do. My only knock is that Royal caribbean rented the area out one night for a private event. We all paid to be on the ship and use it. That was poor!
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Get ready to have fun! And the deluxe beverage package is well worth the price for sure!
