The ship was clean but nothing to brag about. Not a whole lot do do. Room steward was ok but we kept asking for 4 bananas a day and he would only give us 2. We hardly ever saw the steward. Dining rooms were ok but not beautiful and on formal nights the chairs were covered with what looked like sheets.

Food was average. One meals-veal was inedible with the veal impossible to cut much less chew. We did open seating and we always felt we were being rushed. The servers were not very friendly and service was not nearly as good as on the Princess line where you are made to feel a princess or prince.

clean, ok, balcony room ok

not much to choose from

The best part of our trip was the land portion where we went into the Alaska interior and Yukon, Canada. The Westmark motels were not fancy but very clean and all the staff was very friendly.
