Cabin: F deck

The itinerary was excellent and we saw everything we'd hoped to, even some whales in the distance. The train ride at Skagway up the White Pass was very exciting, only topped by the float plane excursion from Juneau. We flew low over ice-fields, glaciers and mountains. The Island Princess was a very comfortable ship and the restaurant arrangements good. Our only slight criticism was that when disembarking for excursions it was difficult to find a representative and to see which queue to join or where to go. On board there were some interesting talks from a wildlife expert, and other entertainment.

We chose the dining option where we could vary our time and seating. Usually there was a short queue and we were more quickly seated if we agreed to share a larger table. This introduced us to interesting people, but we did not have to sit with the same people each evening.
