Our overall experience was very positive. However, the buffets should not be self serve. Balcony doors need a mechanism to keep them open. The decor was not that impressive; outdated and aging. Staff well trained and extremely courteous. We would have liked less time in Skagway and much more time in Juneau and Victoria, B.C.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Loved the \"Any Time\" Dining. Cheesecake needs vast improvement. Buffet area needs hand sanitizers. Buffets should not be self serve. We saw people eating directly from trays while in line and picking up food and putting it back.

House band was good. House dancers were amaturish. Comics were just okay.
