Review summary

It was a great family trip. Lovely and picturesque destination. Typical alaskan weather except the sun was out for 1/2 day in skagway which was very welcomed. Attentive crew. Wished that some activities were not climate dependent i.e. pool, rock climbing.

Food and Dining

Main dining room was great. waitstaff very attentive. windjammer buffet was convenient.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Basketball court was great and opened a lot of the the time. rock climbing and ice skating not as available due to shows and weather conditions. too cold for pool as this was an alaska cruise. at times, the children was bored and looked for things to do. spent a lot of time in library with games when things weren't available.
