We loved the opportunity to cruise from Vancouver to Whittier and then to travel through Denali. However, it was cloudy and rainy the whole time. We couldn't see DenIl/Mt McKinley until we were flying home. Suggest that you book the trip for June or July - fall begins in August in Alaska and brings foggy, rainy weather.
We loved the helicopter ride/trek on Mendenhall glacier and also the evening whale watching in Juneau (we not only saw orcas, but got to see humpbacks bubble-net feeding!!)
Food on the cruise was yummy and staff were very gracious. Truly spoiled by the Princess staff.

Loved the traditional dining and our special dinner in Sabatini's. Felt very pampered! Next time I would get the second seating so that I could do afternoon teas - the scones were delicious but tea was 3-4pm and dinner at 5:30
