Our favorite part of the cruise was sitting on the top deck and watching the mountains, then attending the shows in the evenings. It was very relaxing and entertaining.

Juneau was a bust. That tour was the only one we felt rushed through and was really made to feel like a tourist. Did not enjoy that day at all

Food and Dining
Was slightly disappointed in the food. Hearing comments from previous passengers, I was expecting "24 hour" chocolate bars and amazing ice sculpture displays. The cafeteria feel was a little disappointing

Don't take a bus tour. All you will see are a bunch houses crammed together. Pick a tour that takes you out of the city
