Wow! What a fantastic experience! The entire crew from stewards to entertainers to the cruise director were all so very professional and friendly! Their service was extraordinary!

The food was outstanding! The best 5 Star dining I have ever had! Amazing how fresh everything was and what a huge selection! The only way to survive the waistline bulge is to do a lot of walking and always take the stairs!

The stateroom was excellent! I would highly recommend a room with a terrace! We spent a lot of time out there!

The activities were outstanding! There was lots of selection and it was often difficult to decide what to participate in as there were sooo many great activities! The musical entertainment ( except the guitar soloist) are worth the trip alone!

The zipline in Juneau through the rainforest is outstanding! The tour operators were charming and extremely experienced! It poured rain however it did not change the experience-in fact I think it added to the experience! Don't miss it! We also did the train ride in Skagway which was great! The lumberjack show in Ketchikan was very entertaining! A little corny but funny and interesting!

My trip was amazing! The entertainment was outstanding. Other than the guitar soloist, the talent of the musicians and dancers were better than many things I have seen in New York and LA!

Truly one of the highlights of the trip was the Zuiderdam singers and dancers! They were outstanding and off stage they were charming and always took time to answer questions and talk to the patrons!
