Ship was very comfortable, rode smoothly, the right size ( 1500 people), food good.

Pros: Scenery and overall ship atmosphere

Cons: Weather cool but that's mother nature

Food and Dining
Food was good to Excellent, especially enjoyed room service breakfast to avoid lines at the buffet.
Shows were OK, enjouyed the Nature lectures
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Room was bigger than other cruises and had plenty of closet and storage space
Service and Staff
Twice daily cleaning service and good but not overbearing service in dining room
Juneau, Alaska
Weather canceled all exotic activities such as Helicopter or float plane but rain stopped when we got to Glacier
Don't Miss: Mendenhall Galacier and Salmon Bake
Ketchikan, Alaska
Take the walking tour yourself instead of Horse carraige which we took. Eat at Steamers accross the street from the port -great chowder and fish
Don't Miss: Go down Creek street and ss the old shops,bordellos and salmon run
Skagway, Alaska
Enjoyed the Train ride but the gold panning and show was a little hokey
Don't Miss: White Pass Railroad
