Excellent cruise from San Francisco with stops at Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, and Victoria. The ship, Grand Princess, was beautiful and the staff were personable and extremely attentive. The excursions were many to choose from and the ones we chose were well organized, well executed, and just as exciting as expected. The food selections on the ship were plentiful from very casual to the extra charge specialty restaurants with gourmet cuisine. With so many people in a cold, wet environment, there were health issues and both my wife and sister acquired nasal and ear infections while on the ship that were complicated on the return plane rides.

The special Italian restaurant, Sabatini's, was exceptional! Great staff and delicious food. Take outdoor-lounging clothes to enjoy their "Movie under the Stars." Take advantage of the excellent fitness center and their spa treatments. Do not use the steam rooms.
