First time to Alaska. Highlight were the views especially the views on the Inside passage. Solstice was an excellent ship. Plenty of room and an excellent attentive staff. Eddy (stateroom) and Geovanny (dining room) took excellent care of us. Alaskan cruise is a trip everyone should take at least once.

Ship Tip

Plan your packing. Internet said port weather would be high 70' s for the times we were there. Only wore shorts one day. Also, mornings and nights are cold on ship, even too cold for some activities on top decks. You can easily wear the same clothes every day, nobody cares. Buy a beverage package.
