We did not leverage the restaurants well. Had slow service at the buffet at times.

Would have liked more family oriented entertainment options in the evening.

My favorite port. Beautiful town and we had wonderful weather. We did the train ride which we enjoyed and also did Dog Sledding (on a dirt road) which the kids loved.
Don't Miss: Train and Dog Sledding

It rained the whole day and our helicopter dog sledding was cancelled. I wish I had known how likely it was to rain. I would have scheduled helicopter dog sledding in Skagway instead.

Lumberjack show must see, Totem Pole park which I was really looking forward to was fairly boring. Some place with more totem poles would have been better.
Don't Miss: Lumberjack Show

Pros: The scenery and having a balcony

Cons: Would have liked more family entertainment (Dan Bennett was great)

Recommends Diamond Princess? Yes!
