We were worried about going so early in the season, but we only needed our coats one day. The weather was beautiful, and we liked the ship. Smaller sized ship that’s a bit outdated, but Jen the CD and the employees in the casino bar, sports bar, and MDR were very friendly and fun. We upgraded to a premium balcony-worth it for the room and balcony size! We were in 6279, and I’d book it again! While it’s an older ship, I liked the smaller size and smaller capacity. Food was same as always-good- and the speakers about Alaska were very knowledgeable. Don’t miss CIA (Caught in Action), the band that plays-really great singers and performers! Casino was tight. We did the Taku Lodge seaplane excursion, which was interesting, but there’s not a lot to do after you eat the salmon lunch (it was dry.). We also did the train in Skagway-I recommend upgrading to the VIP car for free drinks and appetizers, as well as the personalized tour information and comfortable seats!
Very few kids on this cruise, and friendly guests and employees. While I crossed it off my bucket list, I’d do it again for sure!
