Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our room attendant was wonderful. We didn't really see her that much but the room was cleaned spotless twice a day. We couldn't wait to get back to the room in the evening to see what towel animal was waiting.

Ports Of Call

Ketchikan, Alaska

3 out of 5
More jewelry and t-shirt shops. Not enough time to really enjoy the port and see the sites.

Victoria, British Columbia

5 out of 5
Beautiful! We didn't have a lot of time. A guided tour is a must to get the full experience.
Don't Miss: The rickshaw bike tour was a blast. The personal tour was great.

Skagway, Alaska

5 out of 5
The Steam Engine Train ride was a wonderful family experience. The scenery was beyond beautiful.
Don't Miss: Steam Engine Train Tour

Juneau, Alaska

5 out of 5
The highlight of the trip was the helicopter tour and dog-sledding excursion. I would return to Juneau just to experience that again. A great family experience.
Don't Miss: Dog Sledding / Glacier Helicopter Tour

Pros: Alaska was beautiful. You can't imagine the views! A balcony room is a must for the whale watching. The staff was wonderful. Good dining options. Complimentary rooms service was a kid's dream.

Cons: Not enough signage. It was hard to find areas like the gym and arcade.
