Alaska was our destination of choice. The cruise line offered an array of activities and site enjoyable to our party or 17. We loved the staff, the ship's director Vincent, and the drinks, of course. We enjoyed the entertainment and the food. Our family and friends were just as thrilled as us. We enjoyed the sites, however, we would have enjoyed more time at Ketchikan and perhaps another port to add to the itinerary. We played games and engaged in public activities to include giant connect four, dancing, and dodgeball with complete strangers. I met people from all over the globe who share a common interest, a genuine love for Alaska. Posted are pictures of both the ship and a few of the excursions we were able to enjoy while spending time in Alaska. I encourage all people to take a cruise at some point in their life, whether it is to Alaska or a warmer destination.

Cabin OB

We enjoyed our cabin and the size was manageable. It is indeed only a place to sleep when not at a port or at a party in any of the many lounges. Our grandmother who is disabled was able to enjoy herself and access amenities as well as any of her grandchildren.

Port Reviews


Very friendly staff and personable drivers to and from the airport.

Icy Strait

A beautiful place right next to the city of Hoonah. The people here are friendly.

Glacier Bay

The gorgeous landscape of Alaska was exposed and gorgeous.


We were late. This only gave us two hours to spend ashore. We have the best halibut fish and chips I have ever eaten. We loved our time here, we just needed more of it.
