Review summary

We had been planning this cruise for a year and the excursions we planned on taking were extremely important to us. We felt this was a once in a lifetime vacation. The cruise would have been fine if we had been able to do what we had planned. This has colored our impression of the cruise line and the handling of this incident.

No excursions

Juneau, Alaska Did not visit port

Engine issues kept us in port 11 hours past when we were supposed to depart. Because of that we were told the next morning after we were underway that we would not go to Juneau.

Ketchikan, Alaska

3 out of 5
We were supposed to do an excursion, but because we were a day early our excursion was not available. Not only did we miss our excursion in Juneau, but Ketchican also.
