Great cruise. Be prepared for the time changes. During th crossing, the loss of 1 hour per night and 2 hours 1 day can be rough, not to mention the repeat of a day plays a bit of s mind trick on you.

Ship tip

For this transpacific sailing I was in the perfect location for the poets and in particular glacier bay! But it’s location was great for either the forward or aft activities and access to Neptune lounge, explorers cafe and/or any of the public areas. Perfect ship size
