Everything exceeded our expectations.  Views of this beautiful land were simply awe inspiring. I loved running the track on deck 6 while gazing out at amazing sites.  I even spotted whales spouting and tails rising.

Lot's of healthy options.
Service and Staff
everyone was hardworking and friendly.
We only went to see the comedian and juggler.
Children's Programs Didn't use.
Onboard Activities Didn't partake. We simply enjoyed family time and views.

Deer Mountain Summit hike in Ketchikan was gorgeous. Hike to Mendenhall glacier overlook was amazing. Walking on the glacier even better.

Everything was well organized. Our family loved getting the warm washcloth and hot cocoa when getting on after a long hike in the rain.

Cruise Inside Passage, Alaska
Ketchikan, Alaska
Hike to Deer Mountain Summit. No taxi needed.
Juneau, Alaska
Hiked to Mendenhall Glacier. Make sure that you go to the end of trail for overlook view and then scramble down to glacier to walk on it. We even drank from its dripping water.
Skagway, Alaska
The current was too rough so the captain couldn't dock so we went to Haines. Lot's of bald eagles.
Cruise Glacier Bay
Everything was amazing. Great narration from park rangers. We saw a black wolf following the coastline and sea otters frolicking in the water.
Cruise Hubbard Glacier
Seward (Anchorage), Alaska
Hiked Ptarmgan Lake Trail. Saw moose in Anchorage. Walked paved coastal trail. Quite extensive.


Rent a car from Seward to Anchorage. There are beautiful hikes to do on your way to the airport. We hiked Ptarmigan Lake Trail.
