Family Trip to Alaska

Sail Date: August 08, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

There were 19 of us on the trip and the boat acommodated us perfectly. We enjoyed the casino, bingo and all of the excursions. The crew was very friendly and helpful when needed.  We had the late seating at dinner and because of the large number of us we were always one of the last groups to finish so we were not able to make the night shows.  We were all surprised that the food was very mediocre.  Breakfast was the best meal of the day because of all the choices.  We all ate a lot of pizza on the trip because the lunches were not very good.  Dinner was fine, nothing wonderful.  There was certainly plenty of food available for us, we just were all just surprised that it wasn't better.

Great cabin!
Embarkation and Disembarkation
We did the easy check out with the boat where they took our luggage and delivered it to the airline. We were charged for our luggage but we all had first class tickets so there was no charge by the airline. When we notified the boat of this they said it was a charge by the airline and that we needed to talk to them, and when we talked to the airline they said it was a charge by the cruise ship and that we needed to talk to them. We were out $150.

Next time I would upgrade to a room with a balcony so that I could open the door and enjoy the fresh air.
