Alumni cruise for Navy/Notre Dame/U Mich/U Minn....small ship with four USNA classmates sounded great. Whales/bears/eagles/glaciers were great but food was awful though advertised at '5 star'. 11 people embarked following Denali precruise that were ill and we were never informed; at least 17 got sick before anyone advised to take precautions; three dinners were edible but others were bad; dungeness crab not fresh; breakfast never varied from scrambled eggs that were rarely hot and often cold; juice was watery; english muffins were not Thomas'; shortribs were served Wellington but that dough was soggy....more meat would have been better and no one does Wellington anymore; side trip to a hatchery was great for bear watching but hatchery in Juneau (not included) is far better. The staff tried to be helpful but once everyone got sick there was not a lot they could do. The staff did have VOX boxes but should have used them on every event and not selectively. It is the only way for everyone to hear what is being said by the guide. Avoid this cruise line/ship which was put together by Orbridge out of Seattle.

Cabin Deluxe/AAA

Adequate but over galley and constantly smelled of grease; not good when they just made you sick.
