We had a inside cabin in the Emerald deck. Room was very clean and well kept during our entire cruise. Rodney did a wonderful job. By the way, this was our first cruise. We did not know what to expect, but our vacation planner helped us with every aspect of our planning. She was a great help. White the exception of one waitress in Sabatini's, the wait staff everywhere on the ship was superb. If you dined in the evening Micheal Angelo's was the place to dine. They have a different kitchen than the other two restaurants and the same food is cooked much better. We found that out the first night of our cruise. Every dinner cooked just right and the staff was wonderful. The excursions were well worth the cost. We did the Alpine Zipline and Mendenhall glacier. It was one price for both. The Vines wine bar staff was terrific and wine selection was well priced. The drink package is well worth the extra cost if you are a wine drinker as we are. Lotus spa has many services at reasonable cost. It took us less than 20 minutes from getting out of our van at the port to our room on the ship. They have this procedure down to a science. Everyone was very helpful. Disembarkation went the same. From the time we walked off the ship until we got into the cab was less then 15 minutes. Glacier Bay by itself was worth the whole trip. What a place to see. Awsome experience.

Excellent, Except for One Waitress

Rodney, our cabin steward, could not have done more for us. He was very helpful and NO was not in his vocabulary. Room was clean when we arrived and cleaned everyday we were aboard.
