This review is based on the ship only. The ports in Alaska were all amazing!
The good: Room and room steward were great. I was amazed at how large the family oceanfront room was. Room was always very clean. The games they play in the atrium were all very funny. Orlando (comedian) very funny and clean show. Our favorite restaurants were Q and the local. All of the Alaska ports were beautiful. Observation deck was nice except people hog the windows to sleep all day. Embarkation and disembarkation were both very easy for us but we were there early to board and used the port valet service to disembark first.
The bad: Everything is all about money. Go carts $15 extra and I was kicked off after 3 laps for accidently bumping the wall. No warning-just kicked off. $5 for a can of soda. $25 for a 8x10 photo. The photographers do not allow you to take pictures with the characters with your own camera. Both RCL and Disney not only allowed this but would take them for you. The entertainment was really really lacking on this boat!! Several of the groups/bands were terrible and I have heard better in a kids talent show. Food at the Italian restaurant was a big letdown although the staff was great. Not much to do when you are at sea. We tried to get passes to the spa but they were never offered. Elevators were always full and slow. Several staff members in the shopping area were just rude.
Room was great! Very large and always clean. The 5th floor was perfect for us. No noise at all at night.
Great experience. Saw a couple of whales and the glacier was beautiful
AMAZING!! Michelle at Island Wings gave us a great tour.
Beautiful! We were lucky enough to see a bear on the shore near the glacier.
