Upgrading to higher level was a pleasant surprise. Staff, particularly in room ,dinong room were very good. Classical music by a quartet, Microsoft digital classes, folk music in Explorations bar were very good. Best was the passage thru glaciers, Sitka. Ketchikan stop OK, . Could there be more and better vegetarian , Indian food options.
.Vancouver stop too short .All in all, a very good cruise

Lido buffet needs much improvement. More Asian food options, more efficient faster buffet lines.
