We were very lucky on the weather. Only a couple bad days.
The stops themselves are not that great. Hoonah wasn't worth the trip into the city. But there was something to do at several locations. Because the trip hit the same cities in both directions, we had an easy time to make up our mind about what to do.
This ship had the best entertainment groups, and best planning of any ship I've been on. There was a cycle of groups in different parts of the ship, with something new starting every 15 minutes. So there was always at least three groups singing/ playing all the time.
"Into the Drift" was the best singing. "Amber Strings" was great instrumental. And the Cabaret event with Philip was great. I would have been happy to have had him a couple nights.

These rooms are really small. And the "picture window" is not great. The only way to get a good look out of the window is to kneel on the pillows on the bed. And it would have been nicer if the window had been clean enough to get a clear view.
Go to the cabaret show by Philip!
Into the Drift and Amber Strings are the best regular groups.
