Review summary

All and all had a wonderful time! Got to see a place I've always wanted to see and met some wonderful people! Now that we have experienced it, we would opt to do the land portion before the cruise portion. We were really tired by the end of the two weeks and the relaxing nature of the cruise would've been just what we needed. Will definitely be going back to Alaska!

Embarkation

Nice and easy---barely any waiting

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Drinks were great--had Alaskan beers on board which was really cool. Food was okay--it was cruise food. Paying for the nicer restaurants got you a better meal.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Didn't do much onboard as we spent the day in port whenever possible. Weather wasn't ideal for swimming or spending much time on deck. Our balcony in our room got a lot of use!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone who served us was great. They were very attentive and friendly.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Always clean and easy to maneuver

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Our room was great. We loved sitting on the balcony every morning and eating breakfast. The tub was tiny--no way either one of us could've taken a "jet tub" as advertised.

Disembarkation

2 out of 5
We had to wait until 12:30 to get off the ship--there wasn't any food for us, the place smelled like chemicals as they were preparing for the next cruise with painting and whatnot and there was nothing for us to do. Everything was shut down. Completely boring.
