Review SummaryOur first cruise as a family (wife, and boys 20, 17 and 14), and the first for my wife and me since 1986 (Does anyone remember Commodore Cruise Lines and the Caribe 1?), was an Alaska Inside Passage itinerary. The trip was a complete success. The boys quickly mastered the layout of the ship and the location of key food and beverage options. My wife and I found our "spots" and mastered the art of finding free champagne, various raffles etc.
Weather was cloudy and cool, but "we didn't book the Caribbean, dear." The ship activities on the last day at sea before returning to Vancouver were a little thin.
Overall, a great vacation.
