We have never been on a traditional cruise before, and we were so impressed by the excellent service from every member of staff on board this ship, from the Captain to the waiters and the room service. All the staff spoke to us whenever they saw us, and made us feel so welcome. The food was delicious, with such variety, and available at all times. Over eating was a real temptation, as it was all so tempting. We enjoyed our expeditions ashore, and the days spent on board were relaxing and comfortable. A truly memorable cruise with all the wildlife we had hoped to see. We saw humpback whales, dolphins, orca, sea otters, porpoises and so much more. We dined in all the restaurants and they were all excellent, especially the Pinnacle restaurant. Every day we received details of all available activities for the next day in a smart newsletter, so we could plan what we wanted to do, or decide to do nothing.

Cabin Review

Large Outside Stateroom (partial sea views)
Cabin DD
The cabin was spotlessly clean, and the towel sculptures were great fun every day.
