We chose this cruise because my wife has always wanted to go to Alaska. While everyone on the boat has been very nice and helpful , it’s not that our itenerary has been changed at least five times. There is absolutely no excuse for not having this ship in running order given the amount of time it was out of service. Excursions changed many times and even cancelled because we couldn’t make that port in time. Totally unacceptable ! We booked this to see the port’s from the cities instead of out our stateroom . The crew was very helpful and also the workers from the cooks busboys room attendants etc. Not the fault of the crew but upper management for whatever reason decided to put this ship back in service. The scenery in Alaska and along the way helped to make up for some of the disappointment but not all.
