Cabin / Stateroom

Overall room was great. Only complaint was the TV. Free movies didn’t work most of the time. They either didn’t load or weren’t available. TV channels left a lot to be desired.

Juneau, Alaska

3 out of 5
Excursion was canceled when we arrived on ship. Booked different one and it wasn’t worth the money. Took half hour bus ride to glacier and it turned out to a self guided tour for one hour. All walking and back on bus for another twenty minutes to get on old boat to look for whales.

Skagway, Alaska Did not visit port

We rented a car and drove to Canada. That was fun and enjoyable.

Victoria, British Columbia

Just another tourist trap
