Cabin / Stateroom

We had a mini suite- D325. We thought it was very roomy and perfect for two people. I loved that it had a separate sitting area with a couch , table and chair

Ship tip

Dress comfortably.. this was my first cruise and I overpacked and overdressed .. I learned a lot! Comfortable clothes and shoes is a must! Long walks from ports to excursion points .. good walking shoes are a myst

This the port to buy souvenirs ! I learned the hard way! Numerous shops and good prices. We went in an excursion to the rainforest sanctuary and loved it! It was very educational and informative and beautiful

Juneau, Alaska

5 out of 5
We went on a half day salmon fishing excursion and it was amazing! We caught 6 salmon and a rockfish. We ate dinner at Tracy’s Crab Shack and it was as good as all the reviews claimed. It was pricey but worth the splurge

Skagway, Alaska

4 out of 5
My least favorite port which surprised me because I thought it would be my favorite . Quaint town but not much to really see. We took the train/bus combo excursion which was nice but would have been much better had it not been foggy .. couldn’t see a lot from the train because of that

Victoria, British Columbia

5 out of 5
No excursion but we took the shuttle to town and walked around. What a beautiful city! We went inside the Empress Hotel for a cocktail and it was just gorgeous! The time in this port was way to short ... I think we were there for only 4 hours.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
We were in no hurry to disembark and disembarked near the last group.. super smooth! Found our luggage with no issues and luggage porter helped us to our shuttle location with all our things
