Started out nice with quick boarding @ 1pm in Vancouver. Nice room at aft of ship. Bags arrived within minutes. Cruise wasn't bad just ho-hum. No energy from ships' crew or passagengers. Most cruises are a combination of newlyweds and nearly deads. I didn't see any newly weds on our cruise. Found out part way this was last Alaska cruise so I guess everyone was tired and waiting for new itinerary. Was imformed several times that the cruise was a training cruise for upcoming Asian boat and that's why we had so much trouble communication with wait staff. Getting off the boat was fast and easy as we did the carry off. Next time we will do the $20 send the bags ahead deal and get off early without luggage.
Casino was frequently without any dealers even in the middle of the day. Golf and dart room was closed everytime we went to use it. Cinema was small but nice and showed good movies. Internet was frequently down for a day at a time.
Did I have a bad time? No...but for the money I would rather be elsewhere

Pros: Room Attendant was great-Nice ship and room-Good excursions-Seaview cafe was nice- Chops was a good dinner with additional $40 fee for 2.
Cons: Bad service in main dining room-Poor selection on menue items and wine list-Would not let us bring our favorite wines for dinner consumption even if we payed corkage fee.
