Review summary

This was our first cruise. I would take another but would take a larger ship and perhaps a longer cruise. A few people in our party felt some seasickness, so bring mess with you so you have options without having to pay to see a doctor on board.

The ship was clean. It feels a bit old and could use an update.

Cabin / Stateroom

HUGE suite. The closest was walk-in. The balcony seated two with a small table and still have room for 2-4 other guests to stand. Lovely.

Juneau, Alaska

We didn't actually see much of Juneau itself; our excursion was out of town.

Skagway, Alaska

5 out of 5
Definitely do a sled dog excursion (or one that included sled dogs). Very informative and interesting.

Victoria, British Columbia

Beautiful city. The GOP-on / hop-off bus was a great way to see everything.

Smooth. Easy. Made sense how they did it. Bags were available right on time. Good job.
