Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

Destinations were an excellent overview of Alaska. The ship and crew were excellent. The passengers were always kept informed by announcements by the Captain and others in a very professional manner. My cabin (interior) was small but very comfortable and amazingly efficient. My steward was very helpfukl and attentive. The restaurants were plentiful. The food was somewhat disappointing, but of good quantity and availabilty. The entertainment verall was very good. The theater performances varied in quality and talent, but there was always something fun to do. I would reccomend this cruise with a few caveats.

Great way to experience an overview of Alaska.
Seattle, Washington
Long, long lines to get through security and registration. Long wait for registration was especially frustrating.
Juneau, Alaska
Great bargains and tour.
Skagway, Alaska
Ketchikan, Alaska
Not much more than a shopping location. Good overview of native culture on tour
Victoria, British Columbia N/A
Vancouver (Canada Place), British Columbia
Just a transit point for me.


Expect a bit of a long wait for elevators. Stairs are often a faster choice.
