Review summary

Overall it was a great adventure. The inside passage out of Vancouver is the way to go. Have done the 7 day out of Seattle but not much scenery 12 miles off shore in the gulf of Alaska. Great itinerary.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Tamarind was not listed on available venues to rate so you need to add them to the list. The Tamarind is by far our favorite restaurant on HAL when it is available. Great food and service as always.

Pinnacle Grill

Ship tip

Spend the time and explore the ship when you first get on board. Lots of great places to sit and relax that are somewhat away from the crowds.

Luxury car on the White Pass and Yukon railroad was worth every penny. Not crowded, the food and drink were plentiful. The tour guide was well informed and catered to all our needs. Plenty of room to move around and opportunities to get great photos.

Little slow with the luggage but weren’t in any hurry to leave the ship in the first place.
