We love the scenery of Alaska and thoroughly enjoyed the ports. Saw so many whales on Juneau whale excursion, Discovering Alaska's whales. Fantastic experience. Lumberjack show in Ketchikan is very entertaining and a little corny, but worth the price.
We were disappointed our first night that we couldn't eat at two of the three restaurants on board because we needed reservations even before we boarded. We never ate at one of them for dinner because it was always booked. The outside grill has the best food, but it was booked unless it was so cold and some cancelled. That did occur and it was very cold, but the food was good. We had a hard time having hot food just in general on the ship. The breakfast buffet food was mildly warm and the only cooked to order food was eggs if you didn't want the buffet's scrambled eggs. Each cabin has a butler assigned, but we're still unclear what the butler's job is as when we asked for towels, he said he'd have someone bring them. The maid was great and the cabin was cleaned twice a day. The entertainment was repetitive with singers who did opera nearly every night. The best entertainer was Charlie, the guitarist, he was great and personable and open to requests. If you want an A+ cruise, try seabourn. Silversea is very nice, but seabourn has all the right touches.
Cabin was fine, tv remote was way too complicated. Not easy off/on. Internet service was difficult to navigate and we overheard people all over the ship asking why they couldn't log off so their minutes just ticked away.
