Review Summary

The 7 day voyage to Alaska from Vancouver was fabulous from a scenic point of view, but the ship, well, we wouldn't return on this Royal Caribbean vessel. Our two girls (ages 11 and 15) had a grand time. The teenager found several friends and we rarely saw her thanks to the ships teen center. This was far superior to the Disney Cruise we did last year.

Ports Of Call

Icy Strait Point (Hoonah), Alaska

5 out of 5
No need to get off ship, just drink in the scenery and watch whales near ship.

Juneau, Alaska

5 out of 5
A beautiful setting but mostly tourist joints owned by the ship lines. Walk way past that and go up the hill to the Capital...free tours regularly. Otherwise it's all tourist souvenier shops....boring!

Skagway, Alaska

5 out of 5
We did the Adventure Park/Zip Line and it was fabulous...scary....the train ride looked kind of daring, pearing down the side of cliffs.

Pros: kid programs

Cons: dirty room and bad bed

Recommends Serenade of the Seas? No.
