This was a long planned retirement cruise and we had a really great time!  Enjoyed all of the ports and while it was cool as we chose to go in May, the upside was that most of the ports were not as crowded :)  Loved our balcony room, the food, and all the wonderful scenery...

Early 'My Time Dining' times means less waiting and they are never out of what you want!

Wish the ship would have provided a 'map' or itinerary of what we seeing....

Go to the Tourist Office and get a 'Walking Tour' map - do it!

walk out into the woods, along the beach, and then in to town to get a real feel for what living on the passage is really like.

I know the train is a big draw, but we took a small tour bus (15 people) and it was fabulous as they stopped several times along the way for pictures AND it follows the same course as the train...

Cruise Hubbard Glacier

We were so lucky to have a fabulous day to view this Bay... I am sure it wold not have been so impressive of the weather had not cooperated.

Sleepy fishing town, but lots to do - Take an 'I-did-a-ride Tour' and walk out to Exit Glacier!
