The ship was very clean and well appointed. It felt as if we were in another era of elegance and class. Wonderful art was all over the walls. The dining rooms were set with white tablecloths and crystal glasses.

Food and Dining

The food was of the finest quality. It was delicious, well prepared and presented beautifully. There was a great variety at all meals. The range of times to dine was good. Tables were always beautifully set and the wait staff was well trained and helpful.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Anna, in La Terraza, was wonderful when I planned a birthday celebration. The head waiter for dinner (Hot rocks) at the pool grill was lovely. Don F. the cruise director was jovial and efficient and humble.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The perfect size for relatively small group of passengers. Ship is beautiful, clean, well maintained and elegant.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Loved our stateroom. The separate shower was great, the double sinks were perfect. We found the bed and choice of pillows to be very comfortable. The room had everything we could want and more.

The Totem Heritage center and the Fish hatchery are worth a visit. The free city shuttle is good for getting around as it is a hilly town and a bit spread out. All of the stops are overrun with stores touted by the ship's shopper. It is difficult to wander in without salespeople trying to sell you jewelry. Yuck!

The stone building housing the City Hall and a small museum are worth seeing. All of the stops are overrun with stores touted by the ship's shopper. It is difficult to wander in without salespeople trying to sell you jewelry. Yuck!

AK State Museum is small but contains a most interesting exhibit on the bald eagle. Other areas are set up well exploring the history of the State. All of the stops are overrun with stores touted by the ship's shopper. It is difficult to wander in without salespeople trying to sell you jewelry. Yuck!
Don't Miss: The Mendenhall if you have never seen a glacier up close.

We enjoyed the S. Jackson Museum as it contain many interesting items well displayed. The town was not very interesting altho the short film in the totem center was quite well done.
Don't Miss: Sheldon Jackson Museum
