This was our 3rd Alaskan cruise, one Northbound, one Southbound, and this roundtrip from Seattle. We had a great time and the weather was fantastic !! We came prepared for wet cool conditions, but ended up with mostly dry warm sunny weather, hooooooray!! The ship was in great condition, maybe a little worn, but still looked great overall. The staff for the most part was very good, and treated us very well. As others have stated, the buffet was good but bland, it had a nice selection, but seating was a mess at peak hours. Eating at Davinci's or Michelangelo's was very smooth and for the most part the meals were very good. We had King crab one night, filet mignon another night, followed by lobster tail and surf and turf 2 other nights. For me, the breakfasts were the best, eggs your way, bacon, danish, pancakes and wonderful French toast !! Our waiter, Orlando was GREAT, he made us feel welcome and treated us like family, we asked for him every time we were there. We had a mini-suite and have to admit we enjoyed having the extra space. The bed was VERY comfortable, as were the pillows. The steward did a great job keeping the room clean and turning the bed down in the evening. The embarkation went very smooth as did the dis-embarkation. We arrived at the pier around 11am and were allowed to board and go to the Horizon court for lunch. All in all, had a great cruise and really enjoyed ourselves !!

Great enjoyable cruise
