Sail Date: Aug 2019
Cabin: Deluxe Verandah Suite

I travelled with family and they recommended this cruise line having sailed with them before. The ship is smaller than what I have previously cruised on so I was concerned about motion - turned out to be a non-issue (not sure if it was just the ship or the calmer waters we sailed mostly in Alaska). We were traveling with my senior citizen mother so the smaller ship was a great size for her to easily navigate. Although the ship was at capacity we never felt crowded, never waited in any line, and service was impeccable. Cabin was spacious (Verandah Suite Deck 8) and we had 3 in the room with no issues. Bathroom was very spacious and the shower was wonderful with great water pressure. Loved the towels and bath amenities. Our butler was excellent, and it was a nice service.

We booked tours in all our ports independent of the ship so I cannot comment on this aspect. Entertainment was basic and we did not do much during the day other than bingo while at sea, which was fun. The evening entertainment was just OK. The best show was the tribute to Queen. Casino is small but not overly crowded. One table each for blackjack, poker and roulette and there were some slot machines.

The ship was beautiful and well kept, service outstanding as I mentioned. A few blips to be aware of:

Deluxe Verandah Suite

Cabin DV

Very spacious and well situated. Beds very comfortable and loved the pillows. Odd number cabins seemed to generally have better port views. Traveling southward from Anchorage to Vancouver. Not sure if its different if you travel north.
