CRUISED TO ALASKA - SIGNATURE SUITE 10005 This was a terrific experience all around! Embarked at Pier 91 in Seattle. Arrived by hired car (cheaper than a cab) around 12:15p...processed through and on the ship in under 20 minutes! Fast and friendly at every point. The ship was elegant and very much geared to the older crowd. We selected the Signature Spa Suite -- the room was VERY LARGE (see pics) and very comfortable. The room was different than described (jetted tub removed during renovations in 2017?) - but close to 450 sq ft...my estimate. Highly recommend the Panorama Deck - (10) - low traffic (not a lot of Staterooms) and easy staircase access to the Observation Deck (11) above - particularly the bar/coffee bar. (We got the drink packages and enjoyed a lot of cappuccinos and beers!) The Tamarind Restaurant was our favorite (went 2x) and service was fantastic. Food generally was VERY good in every venue...and nice variety at Lido Buffett. We went to the America Test Kitchen shows and the evening entertainment (Magic Show; comic; small orchestra)...enjoyed them all. The service by the staff was 10 out of 10 in every venue...stewards; help desk; dining...all top notch. Excursions were all exceptional as well. Felt like money well spent throughout!

Cabin Review

Signature Superior Spa Verandah Suite
Cabin SU SU 10005
The ship was elegant and very much geared to the older crowd. We selected the Signature Spa Suite -- the room was VERY LARGE and very comfortable. The room was different than described (jetted tub removed during renovations in 2017?) - but close to 450 sq ft...my estimate.

Verandah railing is approx. 80% steel bulkhead and 20% clear plexiglass. Since the cabin is at the very front of the boat, views include the bow of the ship and forward decks as well as ocean views out the side. I liked this configuration a lot - much larger observation area from our room when visiting Glacier Bay and other ports. When we were sailing into a headwind - the wind blast when you stepped outside onto the Verandah was very strong.

Furnishings in good repair...bed and bedding very comfortable as well.
