Cabin: Family Oceanview Picture Window

This was our first cruise and we really enjoyed it. You cannot beat the breathtaking beauty of Alaska. We also lucked out with unusually warm weather for this time of year. The ship is starting to show some age. The embarkation seemed to take an unacceptable amount of time according to other cruisers we talked to while standing in line. We had an ocean view cabin and the size and view were very good. The staff overall were good. We had some exceptional service and some that were a bit cranky!

We got the complimentary unlimited drinks package and specialty dining package and they were wonderful. No worries about bar bills and the specialty restaurants were a great treat. Our only disappointment was participating in some of their activities such as "taking care of your feet, how to look 10 years younger, where to shop in port". They were always trying to sell you some outrageous product or steer you to shop somewhere that they get a kick back!

The cabin was nice. It was showing it's age but had an adequate amount of room and we loved the ocean view!
