Wonderful trip

Sail Date: August 17, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

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.

Better than expected.
Skagway, Alaska All shops onshore seemed to be the same. No actual artisans found here.
Cruise Glacier Bay Saw the glacier calfing - wonderful.
Seward (Anchorage), Alaska Finally found some actual specialty shops with local artists featured.


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.
