Great ship, great cruise line, rather boring place to visit

It was a family cruise with number of others already booked on this Alaska cruise. We went on this one because others already book the cruise. I found Alaska cruising pretty boring to visit tiny rural towns that ...

Mixed, but overall good.

They main thing I want to point out is that this ship is dated and it mostly shows in the cabins. The buffet food was marginal, but hey, there is only so much you can do with the buffet food. Main dining was ...
