Cabin / Stateroom
I wish there could have been two overhead bunks instead of just one. With the foldout bed, it was difficult walking over it in order to get to the bathroom - especially in the middle of the night.
Since we traveled as a family, I would have like to have seen more entertainment that was geared to families with teenagers.
Ship Quality
Children's Programs
Activities seemed to be geared toward younger children.
Service and Staff
The ship's staff was always friendly and helpful.
Food and Dining
The food was excellent with the exception of the coffee. It was bitter and extremely strong. I would have preferred a cold brew coffee in order to avoid the bitterness and you could add hot water to suit your preferred strength.
Juneau, Alaska
Too geared toward shopping and not enough family adventures at reasonable prices.
Icy Strait Point (Hoonah), Alaska
This was the best stop. Although there weren't sufficient bike rentals available, we were able to hike, visit the fish cannery museum and ride the zip line.
Don't Miss: Zip Line
Ketchikan, Alaska
Better assortment of family activities at this location. Although there were plenty of shopping possibilities, there were also other things to do at reasonable prices.
Don't Miss: The Lumberjack show.
Skagway, Alaska
Too geared toward shopping and not enough family adventures at reasonable prices.
