Ship was beautiful and the staff was so friendly and helpful. We did not care for the Market Place cafe, enviroment was not pleasant, food was so-so. Also did not care for set up of Blue Lagoon, diffulcult to walk thru with food servers crossing walkway.

We did the Buchart Gardens and Wine and Chocolate Pairing. We paid $89.00 for this and we had 1 hour at the gardens. I think that if this is all the time that is allowed then this should not be an offered excursion. I could have spend hours enjoying the gardens but instead literally RAN thru them. Wine/Chocolate pairing was o.k. This was definately not worth $89.00!
Don't Miss: Buchart Gardens if you have time to enjoy them.

This is why I came to Alaska!!! We did the train ride and Laughton Glacier hike. Corey, Mario and Jeff were the best guides ever giving 120%. They took us on to Laughton Glacier and it was indescribable! This was the best of the best.
Don't Miss: Laughton Glacier hike
