  • Sail Date: Aug 2018
  • Destination: Alaska
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

We absolutely recommend this cruise! This cruise was on our bucket list and now we want to repeat it! The scenery was breathtaking! Glaciers, mountain ranges, whales... Alaska is a wilderness to be preserved and enjoyed for generations! It is a vast wonderland everyone should experience. The ship and its crew exceeded our expectations. We were pampered and treated with respect by everyone. The food was phenomenal and abundant. Formal dinners (2) if you desired, casual dinners, and of course, the ever popular buffet with panoramic views out the front of the ship. Food in all dining venues was top notch - including escargot (my first), lobster, king crab and salmon! Prepared by a superb chef! Even the pizza and deck grill were enjoyed! Not a detail was overlooked. Onboard activities were very organized and abundant, ranging from naturalist presentations, comedians, wildlife photographer, Photography lessons, behind the scenes tour of the Kitchen (very cool), movies under the stars, dancing lessons.... Something for everyone! Food, cabin, service and scenery was exceptional! Highly recommend!

Cabin Review

Cabin BA C514

Beautifully appointed. Seemed roomy to us. Did not feel cramped. Bed was very comfortable. Lots of space to hang clothes and store personal items.

Phenomenal excursion on a train from Skagway, AK, to Fraser, BC, including narrative of the Klondike gold rush and surrounding vistas!
