The services were excellent, with a new folded-towel animal in our cabin each night, and plenty of on board activities, with chances to add trophies and medals to our collection, for winning Mini Golf, Quiz tournaments, etc.
We took full advantage of the Shore Excursions, which were mostly good value, and were very happy with the local guides. We saw a lot of new country and had many and various experiences, from swimming and snorkelling in warm tropical waters, to visiting beautiful islands, with amazing views, history, art, forests and wildlife.
Anyway I have to say it was just absolutely FANTASTIC! Which is why I am booked on a cruise this year with the same boat!
Now, when I say boat, I mean a floating city with 5,000 people! It was wonderful and exciting gliding up in the see through lifts, every floor offering something new and wonderful! What I liked about the cruise besides visiting new ports every day that I had never been to, was the fact that the ship offered 100's of different ideas of things to do while on board, like party central or quiet reading, whatever you felt like doing! As a single I could feel comfortable meeting other friendly people and did not feel (odd) being by myself. Or, if I wanted some time alone to read or contemplate the stunning views, this was always available. The food and dining experiences were also amazing.! I'm looking forward to my next cruise to continue the experience...
We went from Seattle to Alaska. The crew on the ship were outstanding,very friendly and went out of there way to make our trip very special. There was always something to do 24/7 and if we just wanted to chill out we could. The food was extremely good and you could also have it delivered to your room at no extra cost. When in port and returning to ship you always got a warm welcome. We have only been home for 3 weeks and already I'm surfing the net for my next cruise (I'm hooked). I reckon it's the only way to travel now.
We were very happy with our interior room. The ship had a webcam which we were able to follow through a TV channel so we could see the weather conditions and a brief glimpse of the area surrounding the ship.
The itinerary was very scenic (especially the glaciers) and relaxing. We also spent a full day in Anchorage which we feel is worth doing after going all that way. Its an excellent itinerary for anyone prone to sea-sickness. I went armed with preventative medicine but didn't even think about using it once.
The most astonishing thing for us was, that for a ship that can take 2,000 passengers, the facilities were not over-crowded. We thoroughly recommend the cruise line and the itinerary.
The ship was beautifully presented and nothing was too much trouble. I had too spend a bit of time in the medical centre and once again great service. Have booked our next cruise and cant wait.
We had not thought of cruising on a smaller ship and would definitely do so again - warm friendly service from a wonderful crew. Thanks Cruiseabout.
