Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone was cheerful and helpful

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Only drawback was the lack of a full deck to walk all the way around. Also lots of blue glass (to block the wind) on the top deck limited open viewing areas. However, I never couldn’t get to an open area to view the glaciers.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Quiet (didn’t hear casino above) and convenient to coffee bar & restaurant

Ship tip

Secret open decks in front on 10 & 11 and in back on 8

Ports of call

Cruise Hubbard Glacier

5 out of 5
Bigger than main Glacier Bay glaciers!

Cruise Glacier Bay

5 out of 5
Many glaciers

Skagway, Alaska

5 out of 5
Visit the Kroshel Wildlife Refuge in Haines and kiss a moose! Rent scooters from Skagway Scooters and explore Dyea ghost town along the Taiya river. Nothing like heading into the Alaskan wilderness on your own!

Juneau, Alaska

5 out of 5
Great whale watching with bubble net feeding with Gasteau charter. Tramway to mountain top nice views & hiking trails.

Ketchikan, Alaska

5 out of 5
Have fun being a tourist at the lumberjack show and Deadliest Catch boat tour. Have your camera ready!

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Princess transportation to airport was fast and easy
