The robo calls to the room from the Lotus Spa were excessive and inappropriate
We received 2 and if I hadn't complained, they might of continued calling our room.
This ship seemed old, out of date and in need of upgrades.
Embarkation was confusing and disorganized. I am in a wheelchair and couldn't find support on where to go and even difficult to flag down a porter.
The thermostat inside the stateroom was difficult to keep at a low temperature. it was always very stuffy.
Toilets backed up easily in our room.
The Staff was pleasant. We found the entertainment lacking with only 30 minute shows. We learned the hydraulics on the main stage were broken and had been for some time so the shows were tailored.. unfortunately not in the guests favor.
The ship felt very crowded all the time especially in the common areas were there was always picture taking happening.. of course for you to buy later.
Offensive ART MURAL FRAMED PICTURE outside explorers lounge-PICTURE OF bull elephant fighting- killing SCENE. SHOULD BE REMOVED AND REPLACED WITH MORE APPEALING ART WORK
This was the first ship of the season so it was nice to be at the ports without all the congestions. Unfortunately the salmon were not running during this time.
Loud "good morning: GREETINGS BY STAFF IN THE HALLWAYS in the morning TO PASSENGERS AS THEY PASSED NEAR THEM...HALLWAYS NEAR STATEROOMS AT 7 AND 8 AM- NOT COOL- STAFF SHOULD BE ADVISED TO HAVE SENSE OF DECORUM IN THE MORNING AND TO KEEP VOICES LOW. OK TO SAY HELLO BUT NOT AT TOP OF LUNGS.
We are not foodies but the options for dairy free/vegan was not apparent.
250,000+ people have entered their email
Thermostat in room needs to be fixed to allow for cooler temperatures
Sensor light on floor was annoying.. could not be overridden unless you place something near/cover it.

JuneauWe went to Mendenhall glacier on our own via public transportation. No problem. a cheaper more affordable option plus you get to see local sights on your way- A nice pleasant walk to the glacier. Several people discouraged us from doing this but if you love the outdoors and like to walk only about 1.2 miles recommend weather permittingView All 1,406 Juneau Cruise Port Reviews

VictoriaWe loved this clean well run city. Took public transportation to get a feel for the city. Don't miss the beauty of Beacon Hill Public Park. $5.00 US or Canadian all day ticket.View All 1,177 Victoria Cruise Port Reviews
