Good but not great

Sail Date: August 01, 2006

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We took the Alaska cruise from Whittier to Vancouver on the Sapphire It is, no question, a beautiful ship, but there must have been a problem with the plumbing while we were on board. The bathroom was smelly, and the smell in the hallways were worse. Had to hold our noses on our way to the Princess Theater at nights. No one on board could give an answer. One crew member opined it may be the "ocean". Also the sink and shower did not drain well.

Pros: The scenery

Cons: The odor
