Review summary

The scenery in Alaska was amazing. The cruise food was excellent, and the excursions gave us a chance to see more of the area. I just wish that the staff, which was great, would be given more time off. They work 10-12 hours a day, 7 days a week, for many months in a row. This is unhealthy and unethical and made it difficult for us to enjoy our trip as much as possible.
