The cabin, the ship itself, and the crew were all excellent except for one waiter at breakfast on one day who appeared to be still learning. We had to ask for juice, bread, and coffee refills. I had the impression he and his team were overwhelmed. 

In contrast the server we had with our assigned dinner seating was outstanding. She and her team mate did an excellent job at every meal. We only had one meal in the food court and it was just OK.

The weather gods smiled on us. Juneau, Skagway, and Tracy Arm Fjord , were sunny and bright. Ketchikan was cloudy but mild.

I do believe Princess is making a mistake in selling tours of Butchart (sp) Gardens during the Victoria port stop because of the short stay and late arrival time in Victoria. We have been to Victoria and the gardens before and it is an injustice to the visitors to only allow a few hours of daylight to visit the gardens. Shame on Princess for doing this.
