the weather was bad and can't be helped.  With four days at sea it would have been nice to have more activities offered on those days.  Could use better entertainment and more shows offered. I had been on two other cruises with other cruise lines and was confident entertainment would be wonderful.  Wait staff was GREAT and made te trip more enjoyable.


Ship Quality Nice but older ship
Food and Dining
Great food and service - dining room service was slow
Service and Staff
Made on Lido Deck made the trip more enjoyable
Not much offered and perfomances were fair.

Destinations and Excursions

Cabin / Stateroom
it was nice - engine noise was a little loud one night. Otherwise - great!

Saw the glaciars and took the tram and saw 3 eagles

Just walked around the town but there was very little to do - just little shops
Cruise Tracy Arm Fjord, Alaska
Ketchikan, Alaska
Nice town with lots to do an see. Good prices in the stores.
Cruise Inside Passage, Alaska
I'm sure it would have been great had there been sun or blue skies.


Enjoyed all staff especially Lido deck. It was nice to have tacos and burgers around the pool for something different at lunch. Loved Happy Hour for drinks and appetizers.
