Review summary

we really enjoyed our first cruise.   The FOOD was excellent!!!   the sights were great - Hubbard Glacier was awesome - calfed and we got close - saw whale spouts and dolphin from ship - entertainment was mostly good.   The weather was great and the seas relatively calm.   Most of the excursions were good - depends on the guide more than anything.   One was not so good.   Didn't think we would do cruising but now we are considering another one!!!

It seemed to be an older group but that was ok. many we met were on a multiple trip to Alaska - we enjoyed it.

not much time there so rushed. Lumberjack show was a SHOW. Our guide, David, was not very good so it was not our favorite place. would have also been better if salmon had been going up stream.
