Embarkation went smoothly enough. Meals in dining room not to my taste most nights so we ate in ocean view cafe. Mainly the stirfrys which were freshly cooked to order and were excellent,
We found the ship activities to be lacking. Guest speakers... poor for trip what did Alaska act have to do with this Cruise? Very little info on ports except for a short talk on first sea day. Panama canal was excellent. Ship speaker was supposed to be heard in all public areas NOT. We could only hear inside not while out on deck 4 or on most upper areas this was so annoying.
Ships crew we found to be excellent at their jobs, but not overly friendly.
Entertainment was ok. Jayne Curry was excellent great to have her for 2 nights.
Only ships excursion we took was sightseeing trip of Miami on last day as our flight was at 4.55pm. This was an unmitigated disaster from start to finish.we disembarked with tour at 7.30 am got through customs at 9.15am. Put luggage in truck for later collection. Then sat in open top bus for a further 75mins before tour eventually began. Tour finished at 1.10 guide said we would be in airport by 2pm. We had to queue on side of road go collect our luggage from truck. So disorganised then we sat in bus until 2.30. Eventually reached airport at 3.25pm. We had to rush to check in for international flight because we were do late we were separated on flight. We were not happy with this tour and would advise others not to do this tour.
Overall we did not enjoy this cruise as we should have .if this had been our first cruise ever then we probably would not cruise again. Luckily we have done several other excellent cruises so all just put this cruise down to bad luck.
Lovely cabin. Loved the sofa by the pothole window BUT when sailing there was a terrible screeching noise that kept us awake. We lasted 2 nights and on the 3rd complained to guestservices, they moved us the next day to a smaller ov cabin. At least we slept there.
