GREAT TIME!

Sail Date: June 2014
Destination: Alaska
Embarkation: Seattle

Embarkation: Ride in a taxi from SeaTac to Pier 66 was 20 minutes on Sunday. Checking in was quick. Sat in pier for about half an hour before our group number was called.

Cabin: Family balcony 10036 deck 10. Was small for 2 adults. Royal Caribbean regular balcony cabin is a lot bigger. Bathroom configuration was tight. There was NO WAY 2 people could ready at the same time. The sliding doors were see thru for the toilet & shower!!! If you are heavy I don't know how you could fit in the toilet area.

Ship: Very colorful I liked it. Missed not having a promenade like on RCL. Didn't like trivia in Atrium. Jewelry selling was going on at same time and you couldn't hear, and the jewel sellers kept wanting us to move. Was weird on sea days they didn't show any movies on the ship. only on port days. Loved Jim Badger the PIANO MAN. He was great. Very entertaining. Played in the casino, DH won $200.

Food: Was terrible, and we are NOT foodies at all. Best thing I More ate all week was a chicken salad sandwich in the buffet. That is a sad thing to say. Dinner at buffet was the worst! Lunch in there was better but not much. Same stuff every day. Ate in Summer Palace for dinner one night was not good. Ate rest of dinners in Indigo. Service was better. Food was not. Went to Blue Lagoon which they claim is open 24/7, but its not. We went at 11:45 to get lunch and they said they didn't open for lunch until noon. HUH???? Desserts were not tasty at either. Very bland and dry, no matter where we tried them.

Debarkation: Fast and easy. Carried off suitcases at 7am. Less
