Review summary

Our first cruise turned out to be awesome! We knew after this cruise t j.g at we would definitely cruise again. There is no way my pictures did justice to the natural beauty of Alaska; you just have to experience it for yourself. This is still my favorite cruise.

The food and service was top notch! We connected with our wait staff; they were absolutely the best and all of the food was perfectly prepared. We also had the privilege of dining with the Hotel Manager at the Captain's table. It was great!
