Another Dry-Dock Would Help!
The public areas since the recent dry-dock are beautiful. Service overall excellent, both cabin steward and MDR waiters, and found no reason to do the Pinnacle Grill as the quality of the dinners was outstanding in the Dining Room.
Booked the Best of Juneau tour in Juneau, 6hours plus, and a wonderful experience. Did the Bears, Birds, and Barnacles tour in Sitka and also found it enjoyable. The stop in Ketchikan was too short so we just shopped along side the port. Arrived in Victoria after 6pm, weather was cool and overcast. We did not get off and enjoyed a quiet dinner in the MDR which was mostly empty.
The production shows were good, not great. However, the singers and dancers are extremely talented. Comedian one night was excellent. Recycled Percussion group reminded us of the show: Stomp. Good, but noisy. Earplugs handed out as we entered the theater. Debark on 6/28 very smooth. Off the ship at 9:15am and taxied to a downtown hotel, arriving around 10. Stayed two days in Seattle prior to our flight home and LOVED it. Less
Cabin review: 5123
Good location, pretty much mid-ship. Condition of stateroom poor. Sofa worn and faded, as was the carpet. Veranda furniture in terrible shape. Large chair cushions worn and soiled. Rattan table legs unraveling. Had to bug the steward to bring in an arm chair so wife was comfortable putting on make-up at the desk. The hassock provided just doesn't do it! We have certainly been in larger veranda staterooms but we managed to store everything with suitcases under the bed. HAL should really refurbish the cabins ASAP!
