Review SummaryThis was NOT the Inside Passage" but the "Alaskan Explorer via Glacier Bay" and it was our first cruise and, overall, quite phenomenal. We suspected the age group would be older than we are and were correct but still met some folks in our age group ( late 40s). Staff were very friendly and eager to meet every request but due to being filipino/indonesian did not always understand our requests. For example, we'd requested diet 7-up and we received regular cokes; my husband is diabetic so this could be a problem. When we participated in the "walk-around mile"(one of the activities for the "dam bucks")(these are paper vouchers that look like money and are exchanged for prizes at the end if cruise), we weren't awarded the bucks as we couldn't find a staff person to give them to us. We told this to a female staff member, she said rather rudely: "oh someone was around" and did not offer to reimburse us the "dam bucks."
