Very good. I did have to convince the man playing music in the Crow's Nest to change his music to match the age of the crowd so that people would be interested in dancing on the dance floor.

Very good shopping and did a great excursion. Saw killer whale and other whales along with sea lions.

Skagway, Alaska

Ship could not dock due to a docking problem because of a rock slide on to the dock. Weather was bad and I stayed on board ship. One of the emergency boats was lowered and shuttled people to shore that wanted to do excursions in Skagway. No problem for me.

Seward (Anchorage), Alaska
