Loved small ship experience

Sail Date: August 2011
Destination: Alaska
Embarkation: Vancouver
My husband and I were on the 8/17/11 northbound Alaskan cruise on the Navigator. Previous to this cruise we had gone on 3 other cruises, all with 1800+ passengers. We will probably never go on another cruise on a large ship. We found the Navigator large enough to have or own "space" but small enough to easily make new friends over the course of the cruise. We felt like we were all part of the same "club". We had 5 days (out of 7) of RAIN. We were prepared as most everyone was and just kept going. We were happy at the end of a soggy day to return to our "home", the Navigator. Here are some of our other thoughts. Remember, everything is subjective.

Food: Pros: We thought the food was very good. We always found something that we liked. I am a casual gal and loved the pool grill for lunch. Compass Ross and La Veranda were good for dinner. Con: We were not that impressed with Prime 7. We were tired and the waiters seemed tired and dismissive. Next time we will go back to the More Compass Rose instead.

Drinks: Loved the all inclusive policy. It made the atmosphere much more laid back social. People would join one another and make a new friend in this atmosphere. If you wanted to be alone, this was fine also.

Stateroom: The balcony staterooms are so well laid out. The walk in closet makes it so easy to stay organized. I also loved having a tub.

Entertainment: ??? We were too tired after our days exploring to make it.

Embarkation/Debarkation: Well organized and easy.

Ending thought: Starting the trip leaving beautiful Vancouver while the sun was shining was a great way to start our cruise. Ending the trip with an amazing view of Hubbard Glacier calving was a wondering way to end it. Less
