Wonderful time. The crew was great and the passengers all got a long. Food was very good and the general atmosphere was very friendly. The cabin was small but functional-all we did was sleep there. First time on a cruise. Not for those who are looking to be entertained. if you are looking for moderate adventure, it is very well worth it. Would do it again in a heart beat.
Spent 2.5 days in Sitka prior to the cruise. Because the big boats do not dock, much less commercial than Juneau, for example. A lot to see and do besides shopping. Do not need a car but it does get you to some outlying areas
