Cruise of a lifetime

Sail Date: May 15, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Exceptional food, plenty to do, plenty of ways to work off the extra calories.

AK is amazing, ESPECIALLY Haines, which is visited only by HAL apparently. Saw whales, dolphins, seals, Eagles. Stateroom (interior) was plenty big with ample storage. Only complaint was that bathroom constantly smelled of urine, despite steward's best efforts. Would sail off again in a heartbeat!

Cabin / Stateroom
Bring a Stick up to mask the urine smell in bathroom.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Being first times, felt the process was not very smooth. We had to ask for help A LOT.

I would give Haines quadruple smiley faces! It is unspoiled by kitschy gift stores. Go to the brewery!

Make every effort to hear the announcements. Sometimes they are hard to hear, but informative.
