We only saw a tail of a Whale and they only promise "a sighting" nothing more. The Observation Deck is the size of a postage stamp (maybe a little larger) but trying to squeeze 300 viewers into this little space is like trying to squeeze 300 sardines into one Sardine can. Very cramped and extremely uncomfortable. The saving grace of getting One Star was the Buffet Lunch. It was very good and plentiful and the fresh fruit after lunch was a welcome surprise. The fresh fruit and water stayed out until the ship pulled into dock. That was extremely nice. But as for sighting Whales, it was extremely disappointing.
