Signage for Haven passengers in Seattle pier could be better. Staff was helpful walking my family and I to the side door for priority boarding. Check-in was quick and boarding was smooth.

It was a long walk and the golf cart did not run frequent enough for folks with disabilities. The tram tour drop-off was too far back to the ship for someone with disabilities.

Juneau, Alaska

The whale watching and glacier visit was great. Worth every penny.

Disembarkation was slow and not a lot of help for Haven passengers. Experience was much smoother at boarding.
