Sail Date: Aug 2021
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

We live in Seattle and have always wanted to go on an Alaska cruise, but for some reason we hadn't been there yet. The easy part is that we didn't have to fly anyplace!

We found everything about our experience to be wonderful. From ease of embarkation, our room (deck 6, port side, mid-ship). The meal in the Pinnacle Grill was excellent; our lasagna in Canaletto was probably the best we have ever had. Our dining room meals were good. The Dive has excellent hamburgers and fries.

The ship was clean and the staff/crew went out of their way to be nice. We were lucky and had great weather for all of our excursions. Each of our excursions was good and the excursion leads all thanked us for taking their excursion as it had been so long since they had worked (due to COVID).

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Our room was adequate; the balcony was great. And we were on the side where the deck docked 99% of the time.
