This cruise is definitely more for older people...the quality in the rooms was poor- granted it is 10 years old..there is nothing Dutch about's a shame all the Dutch traditions are gone..although the Captain was Dutch an did a great job getting us into Tracy's Arm (inner passage)an turning around avoiding ice bergs. It was a treat to see the glazier. It is a shame Carnival has let all the old traditions go.

First two days of the sail was terrible then slowly there was improvement..don't go for the food unless you don't care..

The room was good an private ..the view was nice..but no improvement in 10 years..

High tea an classical music and the art collections .

If you like history ..take in the bishops house that was made a saint..probably for living in Alaska.

I did enjoy the glass elevator.. get a room close to's mid ship but you need not worry about rough seas on inner passage.
