The locations this cruise went were AMAZING.  Everywhere we went was gorgeous and had a lot to offer in terms of fun excursions.  Definitely get off the boat and explore as much as possible cause it's totally worth it.


The ship however - is more like Lack Luster of the Seas.  There isn't much to do onboard.  The entertainment wasn't that good and the movie selection they chose was nothing spectacular.  I was pretty upset at the 24 hour facilities....that closed at 11pm (who doesn't want to hot tub under the stars at midnight in Alaska!?!).  The alcohol selection on board was bad, considering I paid for the Premium Package.  Each bar was stocked with different alcohols - so you had to go back to specific bars if you wanted something specific.

It was a good cabin, we hit some rough seas one night and there was a lot of swaying, but nothing too bad. The inside cabins in Alaska were GREAT, since it doesn't get dark til late and dawn is early - sleeping in is easy cause you have no windows!
