Review summary

The land portion of our trip was wonderful with great views of Denali and wildlife. We couldn't ask for better weather with light rain only in Fairbanks and Ketchikan. Friendly people and good service throughout our land/sea tour. I recommend trying various food venues onboard the ship as the buffet tends to be similar in choices throughout the trip. Definitely eat in port when you can. We had great halibut and chips in Juneau and fabulous clam chowder in Ketchikan.

Ship tip

Realize it's a smaller ship, so don't compare it to the mega ships. You travel for the views and the people you meet along the way.
