Review Summary

The cruise was a great experience but had its limitations being the last cruise of the year to Alaska. The ship and cruise itself was good, food is always great but the entertainment was mixed. Some was very good and some just  average. The movie night was mostly a bust outside due to weather, next ship I would like to experience and inside theater.

The land part was very very limited. Most things at the towns were already closed. The tours except for the one on the 21st were very disappointing. Would not do this part again. We were very disappointed on this part of it. We did like the accommodations, the lodges were very nice and we liked the luggage handling.

The comedian and magician were very good and the one night's British night was excellent.

The cabin was very nice and we had a mishap with spillage on the carpet which they immediately dealt with it.
