Overall we had a great cruise experience. As others have mentioned, the food quality was a little below par, as were the entertainment and activities.

Weather was very poor this day, as well. Our glacier/dog sledding excursion was canceled and we ended up doing the Helicopter to a Glacer tour. This was nice, but a bit of a let down from what we had originally book. We very much felt like just a number on this tour. They were trying to get as many people up and back as possible.

We went on a kayak tour at this port that was very nice. There were only 4 of us, which made this tour much more enjoyable. Unfortunately, during the busier summer months, this tour would probably not be as nice. A lot had to do with the smaller number of people and the weather conditions.

This port was very rainy. We took the bicylce tour that was very poor. I would not recommend this tour. There were a lot of unique shopping options.
