We selected this cruise because we wanted to be in the Inside Passage and see the glaciers.  It was exactly what we wanted!  The four stops we made enabled us to see Alaska in its glory and  splendor!  The bar staff and wait staff were superb!   LOVED the fact that you can get a drink card and not have to worry about over-spending!  


The ship is outdated compared to others - bathrooms in the suites REALLY need a makeover.  I understand its going into dry dock after this season for that very thing.  The only complaint I have is while everything is going great on the ship, there are no issues and everyone is very accomodating.  However, have issues  - we had 4 - and all of a sudden they have to get with the home office, can't understand English or just don't care.  I'll take this up specifically with HAL though.
