Recommended by our travel agent. Price point was good. Wanted to go to Alaska.

First the good:

The ship itself was clean and the room with a balcony was comfortable for two people. Extra storage under the bed was very handy. Raymund was our steward and did a good job. I was pleasantly surprised at how quiet the room was. The restaurants Taste and Savor were fine. Pretty limited and repetitive menu throughout the week. Service was better at Taste. The shows SIX and Jersey Boys were really well done and highly enjoyable. We particularly appreciated the history of SIX on the screens before the show - made it much easier to follow. Really impressed with the energy and stamina of the performers. Fun costumes. Nice twist in the ending. Siglo [cover-band] had some amazing guitarists and we enjoyed their shows more than once on the trip. The stop at Sitka was nice - things to see and a town to explore. The Russian Orthodox Church was interesting. We enjoyed the salmon hatchery tour a lot more than we expected to due to the exuberance of our 20 something guide. The library on ship was a nice, tucked away little nook with games and I found a book I'd been wanting to read which was a treat. The specialty meals at the Cagney and the Teppanyaki Room were exceptional as was the service. Whale watching excursion in Juneau was fun and well done. Appreciated that the captain of the boat turned the boat frequently so that you could see whales from different sides of the ship. The bus driver was funny and informative. Local Bar and Grill on the ship had good breakfast, fresh and hot. Good service. Portion sizes at all of the restaurants were a nice, reasonable size which was refreshing. Departure from the ship was well organized, but very hard to hear announcements.
