7 Night Voyage Of The Glaciers Southbound (Whittier To Vancouver)
Sail Date: August 20, 2011
Ship: Coral Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)

The ship itself was lovely, the cruise was nice. I was left in Anchorage because of an accident on the highway on the way to Whitter (departure port) which closed the highway. The cruise line was completely unhelpful in arranging transport to the ship and told the 15 crusiers left behind that they were on their own to get to the small town of Skagway where we could meet the ship 3 days later. Once aboard the ship the crew were very kind and courteous. Passenger services was a nightmare, the Captain was rude, and when preparing to disembark, the ship lost my information and put me in a disemabarkation group that would have caused me to miss my flight home.
