We are not fond of cruising, but we have no complaints about the Island Princess with 2200 passengers. It was redecorated May 2015 and was very well kept and clean. The food was fantastic- such variety with an abundance of fruit, veggies, meats, fresh breads and desserts to gain 6 pounds on! The crew of 900 were attentive and friendly.
We were up close to only one glacier, which calved into the sea...Margery Glacier was very beautiful. We took the train and bus combo through Frontier Tours in Skagway, which we would highly recommend.

Traveling Northbound could be even better than Southbound because your cruise would end with the tall mountains and glaciers. Ketchikan was our least favorite excursion. However there is a natural fish ladder, close to the Lumberjack Show, where salmon are going up stream in July and August.
