Review Summary

Going to Alaska was on my bucket list. I am going to include it as a “must repeat”. My expectations were surpassed. The voyage through the inner passage was clam; hardly felt movement of the ship. The staff was extremely nice and accommodating.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food at the food court and main dining rooms provided variety but not that good with regards to taste. Sabatini’s restaurant, at an additional but not overly expensive cost, was the best meal on board.

Ship Tip

We opted for the land and ship package, starting in Anchorage, then going on to lodges at Mt McKinkey, Denali and then coming down to towards the ship on the glass domed train. The wildlife experience train was awesome!
