Review summary

Our first cruise was better than expected.  Not having cruised before, we thought the food was great, inside stateroom was better than I was prepared for and most of all the weather was superb!  We enjoyed all shore excursions, whale photography, dog mushing and sea kayaking.  Was somewhat disappointed in the HalCats and the Piano Bar duo.

Ship tip

Lido Deck dining was fine and the aft deck was wonderful and not very crowded as I would have expected in such wonderful weather. The prices at the gift shop were surprisingly reasonable.

Ports of call

Skagway, Alaska Did not visit port

All shops onshore seemed to be the same. No actual artisans found here.

Cruise Glacier Bay Did not visit port

Saw the glacier calfing - wonderful.

Seward (Anchorage), Alaska Did not visit port

Finally found some actual specialty shops with local artists featured.
