Excellent ship with outstanding food and service. The entertainment was first class and the cabin was clean and as promised. The towns visited were very interesting (Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway); the shore excursions very good (Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau and White Line train in Skagway); and the glacier viewing in Glacier National Park and the College Fjord were certainly the highlight of the trip. The transfer from the port of Whittier to Anchorage was an unexpected bonus of great beauty.

We were fortunate enough to get an obstructed view cabin which had a view between two lifeboats and therefore was a very decent view ...and we got a better price for that selection. Worked out really well. The cabin was certainly spacious enough for us and the window was large.


Anytime dining worked out well. Also the casual dining in the Regency Rooms was excellent ... good selection of food and always available for all meals.
