The service was really outstanding, I've traveled on other cruises and embarking and disembarking was fast and smooth. Be sure to attach the ship Id tag to your luggage, in Vancouver two ships were loading and at least one couple didn't do that and just dropped their bags off and they went to the wrong ship. Some people in other posts didn't seen to like the food but it was fantastic esp in the dinning room.we were three in a inside room and had plenty of room for all our things. The outside cabins seem to have bathtubs. Do bring a extension cord as there is only one plug on the desk.  For us the weather was wonderful nearly everyday sunshine. The ship is extremely clean and if you wander around in the wee hours you'll see the crew wipping down railing and disaffecting all touch surface's. Would recommend this to everyone, as we didn't have children with us don't know how it would be for children. Not many on board also no drunk teenagers running around. The average age was in the 50's plus but very active with many bike and mountain bike riders. The entertainment was fun and the dancers and singers were very engertic and very kind, dancing with older passengers after the show.

if you are taking train in Seward take bus tour up white pass, you stop at places along the way it was only $35 with 10 people on board.
Cruise Glacier Bay go up on out side deck or stay on deck 6 to be closer to water
Seward (Anchorage), Alaska
spent days here took 6p.m train to Anchorage, free bus tasked you around go to aquiarm $20 but really interesting esp for children. tasks 10$ bus to glacier for free ranger led tour lots of walking and Mostiquios!!


Go out on deck 6 to the front, go thru glass doors and up steps to get on the bow outside. Also in gym deck 11 is a door to go outside. it gets you in front .Less people to see glaciers.
