We were on the Golden Princess. We sailed the Inside Passage to Alaska. What an experience. The ship was very clean. Had lots of dining choices. You could have an sit down dinner or have hamburgers and pizza. The choice was yours. Had movies under the stars. That was nice when it wasn't cold! The Skywalker lounge was a nice relaxing place. Not a lot of people took advantage of this. All in all it was a great experience.

Food and Dining

A lot to choose from. A sit down dinner to hamburgers and pizza. The choice was yours. The buffet was always open and the food was always fresh.

The shows were nice. Limited on seating. Needed to get there early. Maybe an afternoon show would be nice.

Service and Staff

One employee from the Skywalker lounge went out of his way to let my husband know that he found his hat and sunglasses in the lounge and could pick it up after 4 p.m. We really appreciated that.

Ship Quality

The ship was very clean. That was the first thing I noticed when I boarded the ship.

The size was perfect for 2 people. The only thing that was wrong was the mattess needed to be changed. It was very well used. Did not report it..

The lumber jack show was fun. We also did the Totem Pole park. Did not like the park that much. Felt like a lot of time was wasted there. It was very imformative
Don't Miss: lumber jack show

We did the motor coach and train ride into the Yukon. The scenery was amazing. The bus driver (Sara) was very imformative.

Loved Juneau. Took the whale watching tour. Was not disappointed in the least. Saw so many whales. Went to the Salmon bake after and the food was great.
Don't Miss: Whale watching and Salmon bake

Saw the Castle. That was nice. Again, felt like we were rushed to see everything. Not enough time to be able to see everything and enjoy Victoria

Pros: the wild life, mountains and the scenery

Cons: not enough time in Ketechkan
