Our Alaskan cruise was a great trip for our family of 12 of all ages. 8 of us also went on the land tour to Denali in advance of the cruise. There was enough to do on the ship for the littlest (ages 5 and 9), the teens/young adults, and ... Read more

The past two cruises I've been on sailed to sunny destinations such as Mexico, Jamaica, and Haiti. This one was very different. I mean this in a good way. The scenery was absolutely stunning. It's very hot down here in Southern California, ... Read more

As a travelling group of 9 people, with the ages from 19-78, we had to choose a cruise worked for everyone. The Epic is a big ship but never felt over crowded. One person was a single traveller and had never cruised before. We chose the ... Read more

Grandson chose this ship because of the waterslides, as good a reason as any! He was right, excellent facilities for children of all ages. If so inclined parents could "dump" their children in Kids Club from 9/10am to 1.30am next ... Read more

We chose the Pride of America because of the destination and not the ship. For all practical purposes, it's the only game in town and a relative value if you wish to see several locations in 7 days. Nothing about this ship would compel us ... Read more

Went with other families. Embarkation was average. Disembarkation was terrible. Put handi-capped person in the longest line to get to customs desk. Had to complain to get sent to right line. Very long lines and only 3 terminals open. Food ... Read more

This was definitely the worst cruise I've ever been on! We love cruises for the service and entertainment, but this lacked both! All the music at ALL the venues were too loud to enjoy. We are in our 40s and love to sit and enjoy music, but ... Read more

When we booked our cruise we were assigned a cabin on the ninth deck. We received an email about bidding on an upgrade. So I decided that I would put in a very low bid and see what happened. To my surprise a $50 bid got us an upgrade to a ... Read more

Enjoyed this cruise Itinerary very much - 2 sea days were great but could have done with 1 more to get to know the ship better as it is so big. Its a bit industrial looking in places and a dark - some more creative decoration is needed to ... Read more

Ship: The Ship was pretty good. A few oddities like having to change floors to get to certain places. For example the kids club is on the opposite side of the casino which they cant walk through. One dining room is on 5 but not ... Read more
