Loved the activities on the Atrium. Dan Dan and his team did a great job at keeping everyone entertained. Loved Elements and enjoyed Footloose. Bingo was always a fun time. Comedians were funny. Magician was pretty cool too!

Laser Tag

Fun experience especially at night. Wished it would have lasted a little longer. Definitely an activity worth doing.

Ship tip

Try to prebook your dining and shows before you get on the ship. However, if you can't don't stress about it. Just make sure to do it as soon as you get on board.

Ports of call

Icy Strait Point (Hoonah), Alaska

2 out of 5
Not much to do here. Walked the entire town and didn't see very much of anything. Definitely not a port that requires the amount of time they provided here.

Victoria, British Columbia

5 out of 5
Loved this port and enjoyed exploring the City and it's sights. Loved the amount of time we had in this port.

Seattle, Washington

Ketchikan, Alaska

Wished we had more time at this port. Did the Deadliest Catch Boat tour. Enjoyed it thoroughly.

Juneau, Alaska

3 out of 5
Did the Mendenhall Glacier, Hatchery, and Salmon Bake. Next time I would just spend more time at the Mendenhall Glacier area and skip the Hatchery & Salmon Bake. Salmon Bake was not very good at all.

Such a breeze. No hassle. Quick experience getting off the ship.
