Review summary

This cruise itinerary was desirable because it began and ended in different cities rather than beginning and ending in same city.  Crew was enjoyable and helpful.

Talent show entertainment on final night portrayal of Indian taxi driver is a very racist stereotype. It was clearly offensive and disappointing and needs to be struck from the program.

Explain what we plan to see ahead of time. Nobody was quite sure what we going to see. Harvard Glacier was a surprise but program and announcements didn't mention it.

Whittier (Anchorage), Alaska
