Cruise was wonderful. Ate in Lido market all the time. Very friendly helpful staff. Room stewards were wonderful in cabin change. Ketchican duck boat was convient & very interesting. Microsoft seminars were very helpful. Take a thumb drive. Were able to look thru lifeboat on fully obstructed view cabin to see beautiful scenery. Nice large sliding door size window. Inside cabin was dark but not in cabin that much. Great if you needed it dark to sleep. We folded a towel & put it in bathroom door & left bathroom light on. Maybe great for Alaska midnight sun. Found it handy to take flat post office boxes. Handy for stuff on shelves to just pull box out. Then if you buy too much you can mail at post office in port. Free city buses in Seward, Haines & Ketchican very nice. Eagle foundation in Haines is truly awesome. Great for kids as well. Lots of taxidermy mounts to see & learn about. We took alarm clock, power strip & even electric Emersion heater. Quick coffee in the cabin in the am. Canadian food laws are stricter than USA. No artificial flavorings. Load up on chocolate

Cruise was totally awesome.
