This cruise was chosen because it was so very special, Northwest Passage; only done last year by Crystal and not to be done again until at least 2020 according to onboard officers/crew. The ship itself was immaculate, easy to maneuver, well laid out. Public rooms were excellent and the onboard computer room was great for help with any cell phone or computer issue. Free Wi-Fi for an hour a day was excellent. I can't even begin to describe this voyage and its route through the most challenging waters of the upper Arctic . At one time we had two ice breakers preceding us for safety. Never felt so secure and safe. The excursions were expensive, and you saw so much from just being on the ship itself. Service was unbelievably superior in every way at every venue. The all inclusive cost included alcohol and I was surprised at the upper shelf liquor including single malt scotches. The lectures were fantastic and always different speakers. They spared no expense in my mind in every way. I had a suite on deck 7 and no balcony but it was very spacious and bathroom was also. Because of the length of cruise, over a month, it was so nice to have washers/dryers/ironing boards available (no charge). The average age seemed to be 75+ but in no way made any difference to the experience. I want to do the Northwest Passage again on Crystal when they finish building a ship specific to the Arctic and Antarctic regions. This is a first class experience and the Northwest Passage was truly an experience and sight I will always remember.

Cabin C3

Large, roomy, it was great to have so much storage on a 32 day voyage. Bathroom was large with enough storage also.
