Sail Date: May 2018
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

I chose this cruise because it was the only cruise to go to glacier bay. I felt the ship was classic. Perfect size to not get lost and interact with others. Our cabin and bathroom was larger than other ships. The specialty dining in pinnacle and the Italian were extraordinary. The dining room and vista lounge food was very good and service excellent. We had a beverage package which was good but wine choices were limited. The entertainment in the B.B. king lounge was the best talent ever. We went to every show every night. The other shows were mediocre. The comedian was funny but the ship performance was boring. A bit of variety in the dance would have made it a bit better. The excursions were ok and ports terrific. I traveled with r couples of family and friends. There were a few children on the ship but cloud was older which was what I liked. The test kitchen was a great contribution to the cruise.

Port Reviews


We drove to Seward as we heard great things. Cute town with exit glacier and animal rescue center.

Glacier Bay

Glacier bay on board was great. You could stay inside at crows nest of on deck to get up close.


Didn’t care for Haines. We took ferry to Skagway. More happening in Skagway. Ferry ride was great narrated by great knowledgeable team. And Red onion was worth visit. Tour was great as was food.
