The ship itself and the staff were great. Accomodation was good. Entertainment other than the 2 shows was very poor. The game shows and karaoke and especially the ventriloquist were infantile. The stops at Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan were just opportunities for the cruise line to sell souvenirs from their own stores. Some of the tours were very good. We felt pressured into buying continuously on the ship. Expensive souvenirs, art and photos. Food was very good. Formal evening again just an opportunity to sell photos. The cruise of the glacier bays was stunning. Made up for a lot of the other stuff. We also felt we were in a retirement home. So many people who couldn’t move themselves. Breakfast was good and choices were fine. A lot of fried salty food but there were alternatives if that’s not for you. Embarkation was terrible. No fault of the ship. The US customs were very slow and didn’t care at all and the process took 2 hours
