Where do I begin a ship that sales to Alaska but it has no heating at all anywhere on the ship! However. You do have air con in your cabin that you can NOT turn off. It was cold by day two had to stay in bed all day on my birthday as it was so cold. This is what carnival call entertainment, Rubber Chicken Olympics, Hairy Chest competition, bean bag throwing just some of what was on offer. Some of the shows were OK but nothing to write home about. Food choice at lunch was better that at dinner. But if you did not want to eat in the main restaurant and were looking for a different choice then the buffet was not going to be of any use to you as it served the same food as the main restaurant. The service was slow and not all of the staff went out of their way to help you. In saying this out room steward was very good. The main thing that this cruise line want to do is run up your bill as much as they can before you leave. Hard sell on day trips, photos, drinks and anything else they can put on you bill. If you are professional people and are looking for a 4* cruse then do not choose carnival.

The ship staff tell you that you need to do two trips as there will not be anything to do. We did two trips and therefor did not have any time to go round the town which looked really nice. Leave yourself time to walk round the town.

Go on the train trip. Not much else to do you are in port all day and you do not need all day to see Skagway all there is there is jewelery shops.

A great place but you do not get there until after dark. Choose a cruise that gives you the day here. Butchart Gardens are lovely but it is about 40 minutes to get there and then you need about 3 hours to see the gardens and if you want to see the town as well you would not have time on this cruise.
