trip was mostly spent on cruising will little to see at stops.  in general we stopped at ports that were gateways to the gold fields but I didn't get any sense of what it took or the path taken.  guess this was the wrong trip fro what I was looking for.

Cabin / Stateroom
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
should use longer shower curtains to better keep water in shower
Destinations and Excursions
not much to see in the shore towns but there should be more than train ride to see the scenery
Onboard Activities
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
bacon always boarding on being burnt eggs too well done
Vancouver (Canada Place), British Columbia
Skagway, Alaska
entry to the gold fields but did see much of what this ment
Cruise Glacier Bay
spent too much time looking at various glaciers once first one is spectacular can't very weel beat it
Whittier (Anchorage), Alaska
though anchorage/whittier was on our list of places not time was spent in either one.
