The ship is beautiful and has everything you need. The food was very good and we went to several of the specialty restaurants and they were fabulous! We have never done this before but were very pleased with the value. The staff is great and the entertainment was above average. The only complaint is that the windjammer cafe closed at 3:30-6:00pm. For those at the 8:00 dinner seating this is exactly when you want a snack. They even close the ice cream and beverage stations during this time! This leave you very little to get on the ship unless you want to pay for something. There is a small cafe with sandwiches and the hot dog place. Over all the cruise was great.

Great Cruise

Cabin Review

Cabin 2022
We stayed on deck two and had a small porthole for a window. This was desired because there is little motion the lower you are in the boat. Believe it or not one night you could still feel the ship rocking a bit! But the room was big and very satisfied with the decor and the cabin staff.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Kayaking
    We were expecting to go into a more remote area. However you travel down a large river and then kayak through the harbor. No wildlife as you are in view of the town the entire time! The guide was not good, only talked with a few people. Would definitely not waste money on this one.

  • Whales, Rain forest and glaciers
    Excellent experience. The guide, Kellie Nightlinger, was beyond great. She was extremely knowledgeable and so eager to share Alaska with us. The boats were very nice and they only take about 20 out so there are not hundreds with you. I would highly recommend this one!

  • Wilderness Tour & Crab Feast
    Awesome excursion and we would do it again! We went on a beautiful boat ride and lifted some crab pots. The guide was humorous and knowledgeable. They call the bald eagles to the boat so you can get a close up look at them. We saw a buck swimming across the river as well. Beautiful scenery. The crab feast was unbelievable. You can eat all you want and they are not slow to keep it coming. They walk around with big bowls of hot crab and let you have as much as you want. They also bring hot butter constantly. The girls who serve you are funny and excellent at their job. I would highly recommend this excursion!

  • White Pass Scenic Railway
    Scenery is beautiful. We were on a rail car with only two other people which made the experience very comfortable. If you are in a full car I think you may feel a bit tight. The tour is narrated so you know what you are looking at. Good for sight seeing but not for any activity as you will be sitting the entire time.

  • Vancouver
    We did not like Vancouver much. The city isn't real clean and lots of homeless everywhere. Some parts are very pretty but not a place I would want to spend much time for sure.
