7 Night Alaskan Explorer Via Hubbard Glacier (Seattle Roundtrip)

Big enough to keep finding new places, but not so big that you couldn't develop some degree of familiarity.
Loved the hot ceramic loungers and hydrotherapy pool.
Great layout of Lido deck - views from pretty much every table.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We had set dining time - early seating - in main restaurant. Excellent food and service. Occasionally felt a little rushed though - probably because we had to be cleared out for the second seating.

The magician was excellent. The marriage game was hilarious. The musicals were pretty good although the first one didn't seem "production-ready".

Great reindeer hotdogs!

No "real people" shops - I was looking for real warm clothes, not touristy t-shirts or sweatshirts. The tram was great. We did a four glacier helicopter tour - very good.

Love this city. Did the horse and carriage. Didn't have a chance to eat.

Great shops, historic sites. Creek Street was very cool. Not enough time here.
Don't Miss: Zip lining!

Pros: Staff - great, friendly, excellent service

Cons: No hairdryer in the state room
