July 2014 - Rhapsody of the Seas to Alaska - Inside Passage
Scenery spectacular. Food on the boat mediocre at best. Waiter recommended chicken cordon bleu. Deep fried with a bone in it. Think about that. Lasagna was horrible. Had Junior Suite on back of the boat. That was great. Room very nice. The main nighttime entertainment again mediocre. Movie night was good. On cruising days not much of interest to do on the boat. Thank goodness for the World Cup. Specialty restaurants very good. Reserve three nights get 20% discount - worth it. Salad bar at lunch in Edelweiss was the best part of breakfast/lunch. In Juneau take blue shuttle(easy to buy tickets off the boat) - 1/2 hour bus drive to Mendenhall Glacier and hike the Nuggett trail (easy hike) Spectacular - trust me don't miss that. If large party (like 6 or more) call Skagway Van tours and have them take you on a tour in Skagway again trust me on this one as well. (think husky puppies and seeing mountain goats) Much better than the train. British Columbia go see the Butchard Gardens.
