The room are old. Need upgrade,

Ship tip

You will gain a lot of weight if u eat at the buffet every day. We eat at the sitting down dinner at night so our food are being served and not over eating. Be careful of what u charge on board. They only used your room key to charge for everything. It is very easy to over spend without knowing until the end of your cruise. The bingo games are not cheap and within 30 min u can loose $40 easily.

Ports of call

Seattle, Washington

3 out of 5
We didn't like Seattle too much. Too many homeless with mental illnesses. There are too many people smoking marijuana on the street.

Skagway, Alaska

4 out of 5
We did the white pass train and gold panning excursion. It is very beautiful here. We pass through the Canadian border. The gold panning part was ok. You will only get some gold flake. It is just for fun!

Juneau, Alaska

It is ok. We did gold panning again. Actually visit a gold mine in a turnel.

Ketchikan, Alaska

Victoria, British Columbia

It is beautiful here. We visit the Bouchard garden. We didn't get to the port until 7pm. Wish there was more day light to see the garden. It is magnificent garden with beautiful flower.
