Review summary

It was a great cruise from begging to end. There tended to be a little older crowd compared to the Carnival Cruises but not many of the younger kids probably want to go see the glaciers. I would definitely do it again.

Embarkation

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
All of the food was very good. We thought the chocolate deserts we going to be fantastic because of the famous chocolate designers creations, but they were just OK. The Carnivals chocolate deserts were better.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
we spent some time in the spa and they were very professional and we had a lot of fun there. The people at the pool seemed to have enough room and had a lot of fun.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
The magician on board was excellent. He even held a class on how to perform some of your own tricks. The rock and roll show was also excellent but she had to leave the ship halfway through the cruise to go to another ship.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone was incredibly friendly, professional and nice. All of the staff did everything they did to ensure we had a fantastic cruise. It was our anniversary so they paid extra attention to make sure we had a great anniversary.

cabin E633. We had more than enough room, our steward made sure we were happy with everything and he was excellent.

Ship tip

If you are doing the Alaska cruise, go from Vancouver to Whitter and get a balcony. You wont regret spending the extra money for the balcony and everyday, the beautiful sights get better every day!!

Ketchikan, Alaska

We did the totem pole and history. One thing we waited to the last minute and at the visitor center they had half price tours. That was a good move.

Juneau, Alaska

we went to the mendenhall glacier twice. In the morning we went to the visitors center were we saw a couple of small cubs in a tree and later in the after we saw the mother catch a salmon to feed to the cubs. Then we went on a hike through the woods to get to the waterfall at the Glacier. This was incredibly impressive.

Skagway, Alaska

5 out of 5
This was another great excursion. We took a boat to a bus into the forest and then canoed to another glacier. That was another incredible sight to see. I was picking up smaller pieces of the glacier that had fallen off. Unbelievable.

same as about

Whittier (Anchorage), Alaska

5 out of 5
We took our last excursion to Chugach National Forest. We went through this wildlife preserve. There was a lot of free animals and some that were in enclosures like a couple of moose. Great ending to our trip. When we flying home we could see the tops of all the glaciers you cant get to and also that they are all melting. Sad.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
like embarktion, it is like a well oiled machine, It goes pretty fast.
