Sail Date: Mar 2018
Cabin: Balcony

The activity staff was great on the ship with Trivia and games 2 times a day. The ship did not have enough interesting enrichment sessions except for fellow passengers who did the bike ride from northern Alaska to bottom of South America. Their presentation was amazing!

The food on the cruise was just ok with dinners taking over 2 hours due to delays in the kitchen.

We did enjoy the ports booking our off the ship tours and wondering on our own.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin BB

The cabin was fine but bathroom is small. The debarkation process in LA was terrible. It took us almost 4 hours to get off the ship and through customs. We have never experienced this long delay debarkation on any of our other 25 cruises. This process made the cruise end on a terrible note. The food was just ok on the ship. The coffee was not good either. The cruise cold passed around throughout the ship so we had to avoid the buffet to decrease our chances of getting sick. The ship did not take extra precaution to prevent further passing of the cruise cough.
