Glacier Bay was scenic and a jewel to the eyes.

Skagway was fun, the train ride exceptional.

On board service was very good. 

In land passage very pretty

Wish we had more time in Vancouver.

Cabin / Stateroom
Noisy when entering port because near hawser room. location in bow streamlining of hull, makes for small room, no couch and barely large enough for bed.

Food and Dining
Sit down service could be staggered, plus dinner plates were not as warm as they should be. Waiters were excellent, corkage at $18 is high but considering how poor the wine selection is, painful and worth it.


Walk the promenade.
Enjoy the New York Times in the Library
Turn off data roaming AND Wi-fi on you phone. watch dockings,
plan a head as an independent traveler to save on shore excursions.
