Alaska Inside Passage cruise 8/8/14

Sail Date: August 08, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We had a wonderful time (first time cruisers) on our trip which also included another couple that are experienced cruisers.  Ship was easy to navigate.  Food was excellent.  Stateroom well taken care of twice a day. We even had ice delivered 2 times a day for wine we had delivered to our room and hadn't opened. All staff were very helpful and willing to assist us at any time.  We choose My Time Dining and had a wonderful waiter, assistant waiter and head waiter.  Maitre'd worked very hard to be sure we were seated promptly and that our table was ready. Service was always first rate and we were pleased that each night we received hot rolls from the oven to enjoy as we decided on our choice of meal. Good variety of choices.  We would recommend this cruise line and this ship to anyone.  Had a wonderful duo for entertainment called the Rosario Duo (violin and guitar) playing at various times in various places on the ship.  Truly amazing talent.  Wonderful choice for first cruise and will use Royal Caribbean lines again.  Highly recommend.

Super friendly staff. Wasn't sure what to expect as first time cruisers. We enjoyed it all. Lots to take in and see. Relax and enjoy the trip. Enjoy not having to unpack your things every few days and be at home. Be prepared to be waited on and enjoy it.
