Review summary

The cruise part was fine. The land tour part of the cruise package was a disaster. Whoever was involved in booking the hotel rooms hasn't been to an Alaskan "resort" or doesn't care about comfort. Three people CANNOT sleep comfortably in two double beds. No AC, inadequate ventilation, lack of blackout curtains exacerbated the situation. Do not book an RC land tour if more than two people - even then verify the bed configuration.
