My husband and I did a 7 days Alaskan cruise in May 2017. The weather in Alaska was fantastic for the most part. It rained only 3 days one was on port day. Rest of the days were sunny and warm except when out to sea which was cool.

We choose a Cabin with a balcony (cabin 7114) Queen size bed with a couch, writing deck/vanity with a really good makeup mirror. We choose this room because it is not situated below any high traffic area such as pool or restaurant. It was very quiet did not hear any disruptive sounds. Only down side was that the toilet had a constant Urine smell.

The Lido buffet for lunch and Dinner had a variety of food. Always packed especially for breakfast (awesome breakfast)...although much of the lunch and dinner food was salty it was still enjoyable plus there was late night buffet fewer chooses in food but still good.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Cabin VA

Small cabin. Queen size very comfortable.

There is couch with a table.

Writing desk with a good make mirror

Small bathroom but adequate for two people.

Lot and lots of space for people of do not travel light..I took lots of clothes and had enough space.

Port Reviews

Glacier Bay

Ship was docked..there is not actual port to get off.


Walked around town for an hour..nothing much to see in town just loads of jewellery stores.
