Did a lot of research before choosing this cruise for me and my teenage daughter. We knew we wanted to spend a few days in the Anchorage area before cruising. This cruise started in Seward and ended in Vancouver. It was the perfect size ship with the best itinerary, entertainment and price. We are not big foodies so mostly ate at the buffet which always had great variety and different themes every night. The entertainment was excellent and changed nightly. The comedian was hilarious, the production cast soooo talented. Anna and Vlad were amazing. The singers (Hanna was awesome) and dancers were fantastic. We loved the port heavy itinerary, got to see so much of Alaska with this cruise. Glacier viewing from Spinnaker Lounge was very comfortable but also the outside viewing options were perfect. Whale watching in Icy Strait was so cool. Loved seeing orcas from the ship in the Inside Passage thanks to the captains announcement! Service on the ship was A+. Our cabin steward was awesome. Loved the extra touches like being greeted with hot chocolate or cucumber soup when coming back from excursions. All around a wonderful trip!

Fantastic ship and service

Cabin Review

Oceanview Picture Window
Cabin OC 5516
was really torn about splurging for a balcony or saving money to spend on excursions. Ended up choosing an Oceanview Picture Window close to the elevators and this was absolutely perfect for us. Loved waking up everyday and seeing where we were. Great being close to the theatre as that is our favorite activity. Being able to walk up 2 flights to the atrium was very convenient. Only downfall was having to walk the whole length of the ship to get my coffee in the morning. Definitely got lots of exercise.
