Alaska Cruisin'

Sail Date: August 12, 2006

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was beautiful and well maintained. We appreciated their efforts to keep hands clean and food protected from germs. The timing of the events were well spaced and everything stayed on time. We had a special anniversary, which was very well celebrated with champagne, cake party, etc. Liked the assortment of restaurants and the fact we could eat when (and what) we wanted!

Pros: The excursions

Cons: Small bathrooms and bed with a bar in the middle

Skagway, Alaska
The train is the best excursion to take. Very beautiful vistas, good value. The town was fun too, and in fact, I got a beautiful tanzanite ring!
Don't Miss: The train and the Red Onion Saloon and bordello tour.The city building made of driftwood is interesting too.
Juneau, Alaska
The glaciers are a must see. We took the glacier Tracy Arm excursion and it was unbelievable! The tour guides were very helpful and we got many great photos, even a bear catching salmon.TBut, oo many souvernir stores and jewelery store with the same merchandise.
Ketchikan, Alaska
We did not do a shore excursion, but walked about the town, and caught photos of eagles, and watched salmon laying eggs in a stream. Fascinating! Did some site seeing
Don't Miss: We heard it's the lumberjack show.
Prince Rupert, British Columbia
Had some cute, different shops from the other ports - just a small selection. We only stayed about an hour. Saw the Sunken Gardens which were good. Visited the museum gift shop. Would have rather stopped at Vancouver.
Don't Miss: None.
