Review summary

This was a simple and quick process. Our cabin was ready when we got there so we could drop our bags right away. We had all our paperwork in order so that made it go faster.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
I can’t rave about the buffets since there was nothing extraordinary. We ate breakfast in the main dining room once and dinner twice. We loved our dinner at the Crown grill! The crab in the main dining room was awesome. The desserts in the buffets all tasted the same. They served faux ice cream- it tasted like ice milk and was not creamy like real ice cream.

We enjoyed the casino.

Service and Staff

Our room steward was fabulous!! Kudos to Rey!! The waiters in the buffets were sometimes very sparse. Our waiter in the main dining room never cracked a smile ☹️

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Some of our bed sheets had tears but overall the ship was very clean . The signage on the ship was sufficient and after our first day we had no problem navigating around and finding our way .

Juneau, Alaska

We wander the town on our own and enjoyed it immensely!! The bad part of all the poets is the over abundance of jewelry stores. 😑UGH

Ketchikan, Alaska

Time in port too short! It was misty raining but that didn’t deter us. We went on a 2 hr tour that we booked when we got off the ship but it was less than stellar.

Victoria, British Columbia

We were here last December and enjoyed visiting in the summer when everything was green and blooming. We walked to Bart’s pub for dinner and loved it .

We were able to get off the ship without incidents and quite quickly.
