Ship was very well layed out and easy to get around. Well maintained and nicely decorated. Staterooms are a little tight but the balcony was worth it.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Every where on the ship was keep in tip top shape. Plenty of areas to lounge and relax. Didn't feel crowded. We had 2300 passengers and aroung 860 crew.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Bed was very comfortable and had no problem falling asleep. Bathroom is tight and so is closet space, so pack light. We didn't use all the clothes we brought so we could have cut down. We looked forward everyday what new type of animal the stateroom attendant would create from our towels. Would have loved to have a bathtub to just lounge in and relax, but only had shower.

Did the dogsled and musher's camp. Very nice but too short of time to experience dogsledding completely. Plenty of shops but we didn't come to Alaska to shop, we came to see wildlife and the natural beauty of the scenery.

We did the whale watching and we liked this alot. The local naturalist onboard was very good and help filling time traveling to and from areas. You need a fast camera and a telephoto lens to get good pictures of the whales and other wildlife.

Nice relaxing stop. The guide on bear tour was very good and entertaining. Her knowledge of local culture and people was very interesting. We did see bears and bald eagles but you need telephoto lens to get close-ups.

Pros: Great Service

Cons: Air Line arrangements, probably could have saved making our own

Recommends Serenade of the Seas? Yes!
