Review summary

Excellent trip, Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan. I loved Skagway the train was fantastic Juneau was to many jewellery stores. Ketchikan was a great town all the places were polite helpful and very knowledgeable of their area's. Loved it.

The Ship was old though and needed a refit, rusted threw hand rail and other areas blistering and cover in paint, deco was slightly dated but service was good.

They couldn't do enough for you, getting a drink in the restaurant was often long winded.

Except looking at a hand rail rusted through and painted over, made one think what the rest of the ship was like?
