Cabin type: Oceanview

Cabin number: 2520

Review summary

Glacier Bay was by far the highlight of the trip for me.  Since there are 2-days at sea, the on-board ship activities seemed redundant & could use some refresh.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The cabin was much larger than expected with plenty of closets & storages spaces. Loved that! It seemed time for a refresh.

Ship tip

If possible, try to arrive to the boarding dock early so that you are in the 1st group to check-in & board the ship, allowing time to settle in and enjoy lunch!
