A cruise and pre-cruise land tour was a great way to experience the vastness that is Alaska. Unfortunately the weather was not ideal but that is uncontrollable. The meals in the Cascades dining room were very well prepared, although sometimes not as hot as they should be served. Although some appetizers and entree portions were small, you were free to order as many as you liked. They were beautifully plated and some nights it was difficult to choose from the many delectable choices. We once had 5 entrees between the two of us. Our waiter, Bastu, was super friendly. The selection and quality of food and the service in the Windjammer Cafe was excellent. Our room was well maintained. The bed was comfortable. There was a musty smell in the bathroom but after advising the room maintenance personnel about this it was taken care of quickly. The ports of call were good and the view of the Hubbard glacier was great. We went to all of the nightly entertainment shows. Some were just good others were very, very good. Getting on and off the ship while in port was handled efficiently so there was never any lengthy waits. There are many elevators and they were generally quick to arrive. The speaker volume to alert you that a certain elevator was available to take you up or down should be made a little louder. Sometimes the doors closed too quickly so you could miss one if you weren't paying close attention.

Cabin Review

Cabin 8080
Our room was a very comfortable size for two and well maintained. There was plenty of storage space in the closet and drawers. There were hangers with clips supplied to hang pants and skirts. The bed was quite comfortable. There was a musty smell noticed upon first entering our cabin bathroom, but after advising the room maintenance personnel about this it was taken care of quickly. Our cabin was perfectly situated. It was not a far walk to the elevators and the dining room and theater.
