Lovely ship delightful cruise
The inside passage was terrific we even were lucky to have sun in all the ports.the ship never seemed crowded and other than disembarkation all went smoothly. Leaving the ship was delayed by passengers who required Canadian visas not reporting to the requested authorities , this was despite multiple requests, so the local authorities delayed all of us.
We boarded the ship quickly with great assistance of a gent called Ian.
Our room was ready and luggage arrived shortly. The room attendants were as good as it gets.
Good new shows were offered and we liked the magician and the Northern Lights the best.
The Rotterdam offered good choices and our wait staff were excellent at dinner.
The Skagway trolley tour with guide Nikki was one amazing, the trolley tour in ketichikan a disappointment, little history was shared and it was overpriced and very short, the guide spent more time asking us to give him a good review and telling dumb jokes than More sharing this great place.
The unlimited laundry is a favorite as it allows me to pack less. Storage in our Veranda suite was extensive.
WiFi service was outrageous and we choose not to use it. The"best" price was $250.00 for 1000 minutes and .75 cents per minute with out a plan. Many complained service was spotty.
We enjoy the smaller ships and the traditional great service of HAL Less
