We loved the all inclusiveness of this cruise line including r/t airfare, hotel one night in anchorage, all specialty restaurants, all beverages, and a lot of excursions were included. We embarked and were given a glass of champagne, and there was a welcoming bottle of chilled champagne in our stateroom. The staterooms all have king beds and balconies. Ship facilities were very clean. Most of the food was excellent. I highly recommend booking the cruise 10 months in advance so you can slowly pay it off. It is expensive but the all inclusiveness helped to offset the sticker shock you get with other cruise lines at the end of the cruise.
We made our specialty restaurant dining reservations online and booked a table with a couple we were travelling with. The online system goofed up and did not book us together nor at the same time. Originally the maitre'd refused to let us dine together but after I spoke to him and voiced loud complaints, he gave in and let us dine together. He also fixed our reservation for the other specialty restaurant. His name was Abraham.
I had the seafood sampler and a wyobi slider. Both were very good. Key lime pie was unimpressive. Actually, I wasn't impressed by hardly any desserts on the cruise except for the cheesecake topped with Alaskan blueberries we had one night in one of the main dining rooms.
Cabin was very comfortable and well laid out. Make up area located outside of the bathroom enabled me to get ready while my spouse was showering. Bed was very comfy. Balcony was nice. Sitting area was comfortable.
The views were unbelievable!! We saw some calving and it was amazing to watch. Since our ships is smaller, we were able to get quite close. Fabulous scenery and we got some wonderful pictures.
