Sail Date: May 2018
Cabin: Oceanview Picture Window

Cruised from Japan to Seattle, USA. The cruise ship was great, the staff very friendly, the food was good. We had an outside cabin with a large window. Included was the drinks package, special coffees (which could only be used in the restaurants or the Irish bar), and water, and gratuities. The itinerary was very good with stops in Japan, Russia and Alaska.

Getting off the ship at our final destination in Seattle was very slow and some people missed their flights. We arranged our own shore excursions throughout the trip.

The only problem was when we were trying to purchase an expensive bracelet in the Tradewinds shop on board and the staff were telling us it was an Effy product, but when we visited the Effy shops on shore they advised it was not an Effy product. The ship could not tell us who actually was the manufacturer. Luckily we did not buy.

Cabin Review

Oceanview Picture Window

Cabin OA

The cabin was a good size for 2 people, but it had a third bed designed to be a bunk bed, and although it was pushed against the wall it made a narrow space to get into the main bed.
