Fun Stuff!
Amazing Hubbard Glacier.  Perfect spot to view this amazing site was on our

We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. Everything about this trip was perfect!! We brought our 3 grown children. We had 3 days in Anchorage. We stayed at an airbnb, which was great. We did get 2 rental cars outside of the airport to save $$$. We hiked Flattop Mountain and Winner Creek Trail. We even made it to the State Fair! We took the Alaskan Railroad to Seward. We upgraded to Gold Star. I definitely recommend upgrading! Totally worth it. When we got to Seward we went right to the ship. No need to eat lunch elsewhere!!! We all got the drink package ahead of time which saved us $$$. Again totally worth it. My husband and I had an aft extra large balcony and the kids had to slum it with an inside cabin. LOL

I actually loved the ship. Super clean and our service was awesome!!!! We dined in the dining room every night. Fabio and his team went out of their way for us!!!

Our drinks were great at all of the bars but especially at the Champagne Bar!!!!

Cabin Review

Spacious Ocean View Balcony

Cabin 2B

I would choose an aft balcony if you can for Alaska. You will have a perfect seat for Hubbard Glacier!!! You are out of the wind and rain. You can watch dolphins play in the wake. You are able to take a nap on the lounge chairs. Enjoy room service in the morning!!!

Worth it!

Port Reviews


We used a service called Portagenie to store our luggage! It was great. We rented an airbnb and we couldn't checkin till 3pm. The portagenie met us at 5am the next morning at the airport! Great service!

Everyone was tired so we skipped the suspension bridge:(

We did the hop on hop off bus and saw a lot of the main sites. Stanley Park is a must.

Vancouver is beautiful.
