My husband Jim and I took a cruise in August, 2013 to Alaska. The trip was for 10 days. We had been to Alaska before for 7 days and now found 10 days was too long for us. We were on the ship too long. The first port was 4 days in and and then to the next port which was Haines, Alaska. There is not much in Haines and we stayed all day. Juneau is the capital and we stayed only half a day. So much to see in so little time. Victoria, Canada was next and we had only a half day there.
Because I am Canadian born I would have loved to see more.

The crew was wonderful. Our room steward , dining staff were exceptional. Lots of great entertainment. We did have a wonderful time. We'd do it again for 7 days.
