Review summary

We had been talking about visiting Alaska for years. We used this cruise as our 50th wedding anniversary gift to each other. It was a delightful cruise with lots to do , lots of shopping and lots of entertainment. But we most enjoyed sitting on deck and watching the world go by.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
All the food was good. The only thing for this southern girl to ever comment about was the lack of grits during breakfast.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
I went to two craft classes and really enjoyed them. The movie night was great and the ice carving was amazing.

We went to three shows. The speaker as well as the comedian and the magic musical were great.

Ship Quality

Since this was our first cruise I cannot compare it to other vessels but the layout and design seemed fine.

Cabin / Stateroom

Cabin was okay. A little small but we didn’t stay in there except to rest for a few minutes and sleep.

Ship tip

My advice would be to pack light and take a tour of the ship when first on board.
