Review summary

Sites were breathtaking (glaciers), staff was very pleasant and professional. Learned a lot of things that I didn't know previously. Juneau is the only capital of a state (USA) that you cannot drive into. It must be by ship or air. Food was excellent with great service, would highly recommend to anyone seeking a little adventure (excursions).

Bathroom was very tight (smallest in 13 cruises) and TV was too small with not many channels

Cabin / Stateroom

Not "2" beds = "1". Small TV with not many channels and very small bathroom. I am 6'2" and I would pity anyone taller who sits down in there. Knees touching the wall and about "1" foot from my head. My father told me "MUST DO IS A GREAT MASTER", so I did.

Ship tip

The back of the ship (outside) on the 12th floor was great. Lots of sun and excellent food.

No DR. in the town. Great ride and interesting stories by the driver. Was "12" miles from the Yukon.

Cruise Glacier Bay

5 out of 5
The most amazing sites(glaciers and whales) that I have ever seen. Friends have seen my e-mails and do not believe that the pictures are real. Looks like watching a movie.

Ketchikan, Alaska
