What a wonderful time we had. The ship and the staff were way beyond our expectations. Our stateroom was much larger than we thought it would be. The bed was very comfortable which we thought may be a problem like it is when we use hotels. The rooms were very quiet, the only time you heard much noise was when you had the balcony door open. You could not hear your neighbor using the bathroom. That was how well the construction of the ship was. The restaurants were wonderful. We ate at several of them and was not disappointed at all. The food at all locations was excellent. Hygiene was very important to the crew. Sanitizing stations were at all boarding and unboarding locations and at all restaurant openings. The staff would ask that you use this both entering and leaving. The staff was very friendly and outgoing. We made shipboard freinds with several of the staff and made sure we said goodby when the cruise was over. The amount of effort to keep the ship clean both inside and out was incredible. Each day every area was dusted or washed. When you were in port the exterior of the ship was cleaned and areas painted. Would we take another cruise, yes. As I told our friends and also the cruise director on the ship, I would not even think of using another cruise line on my next trip. I told them I didn't think Norweigen could be beat. As a foot note I would say if you want to see land mammals make sure to take tours that will give you that chance. We did not and all we saw were a chipmonk and 3 huskies. In the water we saw whales, sea otters, seals, and a lot of salmon.

Pros: The ship was beyond expectations

Cons: The time it took to get through check in and to the ship.

Ketchikan, Alaska
We enjoyed this city a lot. We took a city tour by horse drawn cart. It was very informative and enjoyable.
Don't Miss: A city tour
Skagway, Alaska
This is a very smal town. It was clean and quite quaint.
Don't Miss: The train tour was very informative.
Juneau, Alaska
We went on the cruise with another couple and couldn't get a tour at the same time. As we learned later in the cruise we could have gone ashore to the tour company and probably been accommadated.
