Ports of call

Juneau, Alaska

3 out of 5

Skagway, Alaska

5 out of 5
Definitely the best excursion and tour port of call from the trip.

Ketchikan, Alaska

1 out of 5
Ketchikan itself is nice, but the timing of the port call was poor: We docked with four other "mega" cruise ships at the same time, so it was next to impossible to get into anything or anywhere.

Pros: Scenery and Service

Cons: Ketchikan

Recommends Volendam? No.
