Our Alaskan Cruise was Wonderful

Sail Date: July 31, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

What makes this different from other cruises is that the scenery is awesome every step of the way. On other cruises, you enjoy the ship and ports of call. On this cruise it is all about what you are seeing as you cruise.  It was truly incredible and I think a cruise is the best way to experience Alaska. We did also enjoy the land portion as well. 

Cabin / Stateroom
One of the best parts of the journey. Lovely stateroom.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
We did our excursions through . Two were excellent. But, one of them, the Chilkat River Adventures was way too pricey for what we got.
Onboard Activities
I am not really interested in all the on board activities. I don't do many of them.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining


Bring a scarf or a jacket to lay on your table before you split up to go to the buffet lines. Then, you both know where to come back to with your plate. Otherwise you are roaming the dining room while your food gets cold and looking for your dinner companion.
