Usually, there are glitches on any trip. Not this one! The food was more than 5 star, the staff were extremely accommodating, the ship clean and just the right size. Loved not sharing it with 2000 other people. If you needed anything, ... Read more

We aren't interested in the large boats that travel to AND from Seattle to Alaska in 7 days. The Spirit took 14 days to go only one way. The trip was very relaxing with a good size cabin, bathroom, and balcony. We felt that the crew was ... Read more

We were bumped to this boat after our original boat (another cruise line) had problems. We were extremely lucky to have been reassigned to America Cruise Line. I've been on about six other cruise lines and this was the best yet. The food ... Read more

Near to places where family lives. Wanted to go to Williamsburg. Didn't like paying for other people to drink as much as they wanted as I barely drink. Don't think I will chose a cruise with unlimited alcohol included. WiFI was awful. ... Read more
