Choose this cruise as it was leaving on date that afforded some of best opportunity for good weather and ability to see marine wildlife and glacier activity. I am more of a casual traveler, not swimsuits but not formal. This was geared to the formal experience of dress and meals, relegated to the Buffett most nights. The entertainment at night was less than average when compared to other cruises. Not the large productions that I was used to. The hot tubs and pools were overrun by children who stayed in all day. They now try to hard sell items at dining and other venues which I had not encountered before. It was like a telemarketer. I am sensitive to smoking products so the smile from the open casino often made that part of the ship off limits. The outside smoking was on the back in a prime location which is an area I usually go to. Ironically it was located outside the workout room. The downside of traveling at this time was the 4-5 other cruise ships in the same ports. Completely overwhelms the services in small towns. It was like grand central station at rush hour. There medallion system did not work well and the apps that we attempted to download were problematic or did not work. Those that purchased the WiFi were very disappointed in its performance. I could not believe in this day and age they made u pay for it, and after hearing others, am glad we did not. Days at sea the on board food service is simply not equipped to handle the almost 4000 guests. Personally, we would skip the inside passage cruise and just fly to Alaska next time.
