very comfortable state rooms with plenty of room. Meal service as excellent and the food outstanding. They provide for half-order options for most entrees at lunch and dinner so you are not overwhelmed with food. If they didn't have the beer or liquor you wanted they would make an effort to get it for at the next stop. I asked for Red Hook ESB beer at lunch, they didn't have it, but had for me the next day. The cocktail hour was stocked with premium brands, not low cost brands. The lecturer gave great history and pre tour lectures that were very well done. She also took photos during the trip and provided every cabin with a free DVD of the entire trip and the tours with an effort to be sure everyone got their picture in the presentation. The whale watching tour from Friday Harbor did the same thing, provided a link to pictures taken during the tour as well as the participants on the tour. Amazing. Tips are included in the cruise fare so there is no worrying about what to do at the end of the cruise. No surprises. We will definitely use ACL again.
