Cabin / Stateroom

We chose the balcony for the outside experience, and I'm glad we did. It's bigger than you might think. Chairs and a table outside for you to relax and enjoy Alaska.

Ship tip

Get to know the ship before you go, it really helped us. By the first day on board we knew our way around because of our homework.

Nice little town, easy port, tours right at the bottom of the gangway.

Ketchikan, Alaska

Nice port, very clean and well maintained.

Victoria, British Columbia Did not visit port

The ship arrived at 7pm and we just didn't want to enjoy Victoria in the dark, we stayed aboard.

A little bit of a cluster, go here and wait for your number and color to be called, leave the ship, walk a mile and pick up your bags the them to the bus wait to leave, seems it could be a better plan. I guess it works.
