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.
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.
