Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2019
  • Destination: Alaska
  • Cabin Type: Ocean View Balcony

YES....This cruise should be on everyone's bucket list. Whether a suite or just a balcony it's a must the views are breathtaking.

Dining_ The Wait staff in the my time dining which we did for the 1st time was so attentive .

The choice of meals were for all tastes. Portions were were good

Cabin- We stayed in a balcony room and purchased the key totally recommend it.

Ports and Excursions... We used RCL for all our excursions I felt comfortable and secure knowing my cruise line endorsed these companies. Juneau we did the whale watching / photo excursion Of course the whales didn't corporate. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly when we got to Mendenhall I did however expect more wildlife to photograph but none was seen. Skagway we did the best of excursion absolutely the highlight of the trip. Victoria we did on our own I highly recommended the History museum nothing like that in the states.

All in all I can stress enough how beautiful this trip was and the weather was also amazing.

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony

Just the right height for photography. Our cabin stewart was amazing. Not too small usually do suite but this was ok.


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Juneau

The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly

Skagway

Well worth every penny the sights were fantastic and the tour of the red onion was cute

Victoria

Self guided day Chinatown is small but the History Museum was worth every penny

Seattle

We were Key holders it made boarding very easy. The actual lines were ridiculous so besides all the rest of the Key perks boarding and onboarding a breeze
