Although we had mostly overcast and light rain for most of the time, it never stopped us from doing everything we we wanted to do.  Our veranda cabin was clean and well-attended to by the attendant.  Food was excellent...able to get huge variety on the Lido deck and had a varied menu and wonderful waiters in the Vista dining room at night. Would highly recommend the Saxman Village  excursion...our tour guide, Jack, was excellent! Also recommend taking the tram in Juneau...great views and go to the gift shop to see the master totem carver and to the theater to see the short videoon the Tlinget culture. We never did see any whales, bears, etc...only seals sunning themselves one day.  Margarite Glacier was fantastic.
