Lots to see weather permitting.  Fortunately we had great weather.

Food was good and all the crew were very friendly.  Common areas were crowded on those days at sea.

Don't bother with "Le Cirque" dining experience - it is not worth the money...

Nothing to do except to get on transportation to Anchorage. Booked our own bus to a hotel we booked ourselves in Anchorage. Way less expensive.
