I will start out by saying Alaska is absolutely beautiful. When you spend over $4K for one week of lodging and food one would expect higher quality and a safe environment. The Stateroom: Lightbulbls missing in vanity and nightstand, ... Read more

30% of the food was "not" good. The first day upon arrival was pretty bad. Just picked through it. The french fries were small, tasteless and dry, even with cheese sauce. Wish they picked better quality potatoes like Steak ... Read more

Overall, we rate this cruise as Average, based mainly on the superior service of the crew and the general cleanliness of all public spaces onboard. The quality of the food in all venues was a little sub-par from our previous experience on ... Read more

Really enjoyed our stay on the Legend. Staff was amazing, really appreciate all the hard working people. She's an older ship but met all our needs. Couldn't believe the space in the bathroom, best on any cruise to date. I had no ... Read more

The crew was very pleasant. We discovered the "undercover" secret menu that the dining room keeps hidden away. This way.....your food is not mass produced. Just have to order it a day in advance at the dining room check in ... Read more

Seattle is a small port, it is not as built up as the Florida cruise ports. You have to cart your luggage into the metal building and up to the scanner. The lines for check in were longer than other cruises these are the negatives, for ... Read more
