Sail Date: Jun 2019
Cabin: Ocean View Balcony

Overall, the trip was great. I'm going to talk less about the excursions (which was awesome), and more about the ship. The cabin was nice. Super small, even for a single person. I had a balcony which was nice as I was able to sleep with the door open for some nice Alaskan air. Service on the ship was spectacular as well. Big shoutout to Vasile (guest services) and the bartenders at Quill and Compass. The gym was old, and dated - some of that equipment could use some attention. From the outside, the ship appeared to be pretty dated. There were visible signs of rust, age... But that's to be expected with a ship quickly approaching 20 years old

My biggest gripes with the ship are the following:

One - It is impossible to find nutritional information anywhere. I am actively counting calories and macro-nutrients in an effort to lose weight. It is very frustrating not being able to even hazard a guess with some of these meals that were served in the buffet lines. As more and more people are doing specialized diets (paleo, keto, low/high carb, etc), it would be nice to know what we're working with.

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony

Cabin 6D

The cabin was excellent, a bit small. My only real complaint with my cabin is that there were not enough electrical outlets. I could only find two, which made it impossible to charge many of my devices. I ended up using my laptop as a USB hub to charge most of my stuff.
