First time cruise and land tour. Was glad to see Alaska this way. The lodges and travel on land were very nice and well done.Weather was great. This is personal opinion and looking for feedback, so take these comments for what they are worth.
Ship was as nice and clean as it could be. Cannot fault the cruise line for any aspect of not running a good ship. However did not enjoy the cruise and it will be my last. The food was "good" and certainly plentiful but no better than many restaurants. When you consider the cost of the cruise and that sometimes you have to eat or lose, is it worth it? I think not.I will state again this is the best way to see Alaska.
Ship Crew cannot complain as they did their job. However I felt some resentment and disdain by some of the crew. I really did not feel comfortable with the servers and waiters at times. Maybe it is me feeling they were underpaid and only there because of their third world birth.I know this is a good job for most of them and they are getting ahead but I felt uncomfortable, probably it is just me.
