I always wanted to see Alaska. I am convinced this is the best way for a first time trip. A lot of very different experiences and ports of call. We were always entertained when we wanted to be. Since most of the travel between ports was at night there was always ample time to disembark and go on an excursion each day. The choice of excursions was phenomenal. We did the spa packages twice during sailing days and we really go our money's worth. Other days i made ample use of the spa facilities, sauna, and steam room. And it is hard to say enough about the food. Reserved seating in the special restaurants made us feel special....however, we enjoyed eating in the World Cafe and Mamsens were just as enjoyable. I sampled a lot of different items and finished off each evening with a Gelato and still managed to not gain a pound extra (probably because of all the excursion activity). Overall, we did not have one negative experience. I recommend this to anyone....old or young.
Was pleasantly surprised with the amount of storage space...I just assumed that would be at a premium. The whole cabin was spacious and comfortable and the balcony was great....I spent a lot of time there when relaxing just watching the scenery go by. The spacious bathroom was very nice. We never once felt cramped. All the ammenities made it extra special. The 7th deck felt very special.
