This is my 3rd to glacier bay. This time w/husband and college graduate son in RM 8050.
Excellent food!!! Excellent room valet, and hair stylist from Sri Lanka. Loved the Ukrainian violinist and pianist every night...quite a crowd there every night.
Also enjoyed mass w/the padre and a wonderful group of worshippers, but they kept moving us and changing schedule times making it confusing.
The hi light was the weather at the glaciers!!! The mountains mirrored in the water!!! Blue unusual skies!!! Saw more this year because there was a hurricane last year on the Oosterdam and no refunds, no drinks or champagne...nothing.
So many lovely people but my son wished there was a gathering time for his age group and not just tots. Had a better time at the casino...much better system than the last time to be able to see what or the sum played. The other time the machine charged me, but gave no credit to the machine being played. Much easier
Like having hand soap everywhere and not having to touch bath doors. Could have used a few more flowers in our room. I love flowers!!!
Loved the lobster, last night duck, the creme brulee, coconut ice cream, beef wellington, but wanted leg of lamb or rack of lamb...not on menu. The escargot was excellent, the best in a long time
Wish the sofa bed were a bit lower and wider. Even tho my son is young it would fit a youngster better. But the valet cleaned well every day!
Good to feel appreciated at the Capts lunch w/champagne but the waiters seemed unwilling to refill any glasses. Some times service at dining was top notch, and other times very slow to even get a refill of water/bread/have plates cleared. Can really see who the old timers are being cheerful and quick.your mail is very slow
French toast like mom used to make/good eggs Benedict..
Going next time w/my twin sister but hope to see northern lights!!! Will try to book later in sept

Never have a room under the pool !!! The wood floors are loud any time tables and chairs are moved.
Take bubble bath for the whirlpool!!! Look for northern lights and announce it to pax so we can see them
