First time to Alaska, ship and staff were great. Excursions were great also I did quite a few. Now the downer side. We have cruised with American cruise lines before on a Mississippi river cruise from New Orleans to St Louis. The food was of high end and fabulous. Large bacon wrapped scallops, crab stuffed lobster tail cajun crawfish etc. The Alaskan trip no crab the whole trip no snow crab Dungeness or king. Come on really? We live in Oregon and can get all the time. One day I had a BLT with no tomato Wowzer you ran out of tomatoes really. The wait staff was good but they had to put up with many complaints about the food. This particular chef needs a do over. She said that it was hard to get some items I call BS. I had king crab legs twice in Juneau. I suspect trying to save on the budget shame shame. ACL is not a low cost cruise lines I expect better. We are trying ACL one more time October 2022 and if the food has no improvement we will be done with ACL. We like the small boat cruising but if food is subpar no thanks. We also had many frozen items tater tots etc. The entertainment was also lacking. A piano player that was always drunk and guitar player that was so subpar. I will be returning to Alaska next august 2022 For a fishing lodge trip that is all inclusive. They have King crab legs and Dungeness both with smoked prime rib etc. WE do not mind paying up along as the food and service are great.

Cabin Review

Cabin was well taken care of except for the carpet which was not vacumed for 15 days.
