First of all the food stinks, I know I am a picky person but on a breakfast buffet how many kinds of eggs do you need to serve, one day we had three kinds of egg on one side of the bufet line. As for the pork that was served, some was still  red on the inside, I was always lead to believe that you dont serve pork red. I talked to the head person of the buffet, he seamed like he wasnt interested in my complaint, also i wrote a review to Princess cruise line, no respond back as of yet..Most of the activites on the ship was to try to sell you something,(jewelry, paintings,clothing) If i wanted to shop I could have stayed home.

As far the land excursions  off the ship we did the Taksanuk mountain trail 4x4 This was a great time, cookies on the way up the trail was great also the fish and chicken dinner at the cabin was great food. the people that put it on did a wonderful job!!!! The mendenhall glacier and whale quest excursion was fun we seen whales and the glacier was beautiful. Both was well worth the money
