Alaska is Great! by reijci

/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Great tour and state. This was our third visit to Alaska. Scenery is breathtaking; citizens are very friendly and helpful. We hired non-Holland shore excursions with knowledgeable natives that took us off the routine tourist routes and gave us more insight of their lives and of Alaska.

Greatest #1 Bucket List by pkdrum

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I have never heard anyone say, "oh, that Alaska trip/cruise is horrible" and now I know why - the Alaska experience was wonderful but the views and the Alaska people we encountered were awesome. I want to recognize the ship staff - my two sweet little housekeepers were so nice and the whole crew were fabulous. They made up for the lack of friendliness of some of the passengers.

First Cruise to Alaska by djfenter

We enjoyed our first cruise to Alaska. Oceania was a good cruise line and arranged a good selection of excursions at the various ports. We particularly enjoyed the glacier viewings that we had on our trip.

Third Alaska Cruise - Great time, great scenery! by Fran18

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Did not get to take our helicopter tour to walk on Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau due to bad weather, but that was the only disappointment. Whale-watching at Icy Strait was fabulous, as they were bubble feeding, and there were constant sightings for two hours. We signed up for a tour on the pier in Ketchikan which I would NOT recommend. It was to see bears and totem poles (which we did), but the tour guide was not good. I would recommend staying with the cruise line shore excursions.

First Trip to Alaska! by ldewitt

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The cruise was nice and I enjoyed my time on the ship. The food was good especially the specialty restaurants (Qsine, Tuscan Grill and Sushi on 5). These restaurants are extra but well worth it. The ship had a movie screen on the top deck which was a nice surprise.

Great cruise EXCEPT for a terrible spa by Portera

We activated our vacation guarantee and returned home from the first port of call. The spa was completely mismanaged.

The boarding was quick and painless. Our cabin was clean and a nice size. My only complaint is the coffee from room service was never hot. Tried several times.

Amazing Alaska Cruise Trip! by ginnygirl14

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Food was okay but had better on previous Carnival cruises. Night entertainment was slim, no Broadway shows. Only show worth going to was punchline in the evenings. Disembarkation wasn't organized well. We were told to wait in Black Pearl to be called for early departure and was never called. It took 2 hours to get on cruise bus to airport so we missed our fight. People with late flights was able to disembarkation prior to us and we had an early flight to catch.

Alaska - Hubbard Glacier by RichardBI

Weather is a critical factor as the clouds block any views. Food on board, excellent and you must have the free wi-fi package as there is rarely cell service, except Juneau and Ketchikan.

Amazing Alaska cruise by nfirby

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

This was a fabulous cruise. We had a very easy embarkation process compared to other cruises. Our stateroom/dining/bar staff and the ship were wonderful and very attentive. The ship was very clean with lots of amazing food and desserts. Ports of call were great with opportunities to do many activities. Exiting the ship was organized and fast. I would fully recommend this cruise!

Wonderful Trip and Wonderful Weather by MartinezMike

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Overall, my wife and I had a great experience. The ship was great, the staff was top notch and the food was unbelievable. The demographics skew 70 and 80 years old. My wife and I are 60 and felt like we were a bit out of our element. We met a few nice people, but not as many as expected.

The best hotel in Alaska by mg68832287

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Our first impression of Alaska was how lucky we are to have this magnificent, unspoiled place in America. Our second impression was how crucial it is for us all to protect it. You can't believe the miles and miles of untouched forest and wilderness. The amazing wildlife, that seems to be flourishing. The remarkable people, who chose to be there and wouldn't be anywhere else. And to do it all from this amazing floating hotel called the Sojourn made it incredible.
