Great ship. The service was excellent. Views were amazing. Saw whales from the ship and the glaciers were spectacular. Unbelievable scenery. Restaurants were nice, but they charge $20/person for both the Steakhouse and the Italian spot. Our fitness instructors were great, but they charged $30/person for 3 spin classes during the week. Gym is over-crowded in the AM and needs an update. If you like to have a couple of drinks, be prepared to pay. Even at the welcome party when it looked like a waiter was giving away drinks, you had to supply a room key. Everything is pricey. Once you get to the port, those stores have deals back with the ship. Pools are small and constantly crowded. Good luck if you want to swim laps. But the people who work on this ship were amazing - friendly, outgoing, caring... Can't say enough.

My wife loved the shops. We got jewelry there. Good price too. Lumberjack show though is for families with kids. Wouldn't do that again.
Don't Miss: Shopping, walking around

Come on Man. What are supposed to do from 7-1130? That's ridiculous. What's the point? Hurry-up and eat dinner and then rush. Bad job.
Don't Miss: We had a drink at the Empress Hotel. Nice but pricey

Go to the Dog-Sledding Camp. We got a sled ride there and the pups were great. These were dogs who actually have run in the Iditarod.

Beautiful. We did a ziplining/Mendenhall Glacier tour and loved it. Exciting and nice.

Pros: Great Staff, Good Cruise, Nice Ship
