Avoid cabin 8560, which is right above the Bliss nightclub. The music is so loud you could feel the bass throb through the cabin floor. If the ship is full, they cannot move you. The Bliss is a main entertainment venue and they will stop playing until midnight. The food choices except for the Garden Cafe and the poolside buffet cost more money. The food in Teppanyaki and Le Bistro is very salty. The spa has competent staff. There is a cardroom and Library for quieter pursuits, but if someone is smoking on the deck above them, there is a trace of smoke that comes thru the ventilation systems. There was some confusion of how the beds should be placed in our cabin. We preferred the beds to be separated to create a center aisle. It made it easier to maneuver in the very tiny cabin. We requested the change which they obliged, then four hours later returned the beds to the original configuration. All very confusing! When we advised the Guest services we would be disembarking in Ketchikan, they were gracious and returned our fees for the spa and shore excursions. When they say partially obstructed view, they mean mostly obstructed.

It was so awful we left the ship in Ketchikan
