Not ultra-luxury but a good value.

Not the best cruise I've ever been on, but not bad either.

Wanted to go to Alaska and found a pretty good deal from Vancouver ending in San Francisco. With 3 ships at the dock, embarcation was the usual cattle call, however there were plenty of helpful port "hosts" to point you in the right direction. The muster drill was not much fun. It went on too long, with everyone having to stand the entire time. Is it really necessary to state everything 3 times in 3 different languages? Passengers were literally groaning near the end.....

The food was pretty good, especially the prime rib on the first night, which was superb; as good as any on land. It was served again the last night, but unfortunately it wasn't as good. The croissants in the morning were excellent, especially if they were still hot out of the oven. The other breads and desserts were good, except for the souffle. It tasted emulsified and not as a real one should. But then again, I've never had a decent souffle on a ship and they all should probably stop making them.

My room was comfortable. Only complaint is the shower was quite small.
