Book excursions on your own without AA or RC, much cheaper and better experience. Plus the locals actually make some money. Be prepared for heavy sales pitches on everything from jewelry to fine art.

Great trip, but ship nickel and dimes you by flokellam

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Cruise was great. Only complaint is you stay on ship for 3 whole days. Ports were good. Ship nickels and dimes you for everything, which they never used to. Have to pay for capacinno's at meals now. Really??? You pay extra for lots of other activities and to go to Johnny Rockets. Cost the same to go on ship as land. Ice skating show was excellent!!

Alaska Cruise by jship

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

The service on the ship was fantastic. The wait staff was especially friendly. There were a good variety of activities but the hours that rock climbing, flow rider, and ice skating were open were limited to the amount of time we were on the ship. Would have been nice to have a set show schedule that had early kid friendly shows.

The whole trip was amazing. Least favorite was Victoria but that's a personal preference. This is a must go for any bucket list.

Hospitable staff, did not enjoy the food and minimal ports. by Lanat42

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

The shuttle that we booked to go to the airport was unorganized and drop off was far from ticketing. We almost missed our flight and it was a stressful experience.

Third time on the ship enjoy being on the Explorer would really love for the Explorer to return to the east coast like New Jersey to do the Caribbean islands.

Excellent way to experience Alaska by trentoncorneliu

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

The service was exceptional. The food choices were great. It's probably had to eat for a week high level food without missing some of your own personal favorites from home.

Poor customer service by kykoreychay3

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

Poor customer service....For the amount of money you are paying for the cruise, some things should be free. 140.00 a week for WiFi that barely worked. Watered down drinks. Dining room food was disappointing.. First and last time sailing with Royal Caribbean.

Wish I had tried another cruise line for this trip by ftci

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

There was mold/mildew in the grout in the world's smallest shower. No washcloths were provided until requested. The staff is all about getting more cash for tips over and above what the Ship charges already. Three of the 7 days of this cruise are at sea and most of the 4th also. Don't wast your money on a balcony stateroom.

Awesomely Scenic Cruise! by bakerman001

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We did the 7 day round trip up to Skagway and back; by far this was the most scenic cruise we have done to this point. The drive through the Tracy Arm Fjord (not always a guarantee due to ice) was one of the most stunning things I have ever seen in my life. There is no bad place on deck, as the boat executes multiple slow 360s when the captain gets as close to the glaicier as he/she can. The rest of this trip is equally awesome.

Side trips are overpriced. If you want soft drinks on this cruise, you must buy a special glass for $70. There is a $14.50 per person per day automatic gratuity charge to your bill. This is not a sun-lovers cruise. Temperatures in summer are very cool in this climate. We had plumbing and mold problems in our cabin.
