Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Cabin - We enjoyed the cabin and the full coverage overhang is nice for rainy weather and would also be nice protection from hot sun. I would be hesitant to book this cabin for a hot weather destination since it is directly below cabanas on the Lido deck.

Port Reviews

Glacier Bay

Even with the misty/drizzly weather that we experienced this is an incredible place to see. Definitely recommend picking an itinerary that includes this.


If you can afford it, definitely recommend taking a helicopter to Herbert Glacier with Coastal Helicopters. Landing on a glacier is a great experience!
