The Long Wet Road

Sail Date: June 22, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Weather was nice in Vancouver and the inside passage but was windy wet and overcast the rest of the trip.  On board entertainment was very good.  Food in the main dining room was very good, the buffet was not a fun place to be, long lines and long waiting.  On board activities lets just say I'm not in college anymore.  Room was excellent and very clean.  Ports, we could not get into Skagway the first time so went to Haines about an hour away, they were not ready for us still they offered some sight seeing and restaurants.  Seward was our longest layover with really nothing to do or see, did have a nice free shuttle from the ship to the train station and downtown.  Rainy day so maybe not all there fault.  To me each port had too many jewelry stores and not enough local wares.  Would like to get to know more about where you are at instead of jewelry everywhere you look.

Overall I would do the cruse again knowing now what to expect, we did go to rest and we did a lot of that.
