Review summary

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!

Bring a Stick up to mask the urine smell in bathroom.

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