Overlapping of one-time offerings posed disappointment for scheduling. So many options, so little time.

HAL attracts older clientele, which is exactly why I choose them - on my 92 year old mom's bucket list to see Alaska. The 6 PM - midnight stop in BC was too late for mom to do much at all. Tried to hire peddlars for a tour but we were a group of three and only a few tandem bikes exist and after an hour or more, we gave up trying to find an available one. Found some great hair products at LUSH. Will locate future orders via internet.

Cruise schedule limited time in this city which had more to offer thn Sitka.

Gorgeous day. A blessing. Thoured the National park and purchased salmon at Absolutely Fresh to send home.

Very poor weather conditions. Helicopter/dog mushing excusions was cancelled due to weather. Had no back up plans. Expected rain during the cruise (iti's Alaska, after all) but reality would cause me, in the future, to plan better.

Pros: seeing Alaska through the eyes of my 92 year old mother

Cons: service from Cruise 411

Recommends Westerdam? Yes!
