We chose this cruise at the 2 months prior to embarkation. Got one of the last V3 cabins, but 5 weeks later got an offer from Seabourn to upgrade to a penthouse suite for $299 per person, Took it and loved the suite. It really added to the experience. It was our second time on Seabourn. The weather turned poor half way through, but that's Alaska in September. Ventures by Seabourn excursions were hit or miss depending on the guide or zodiac captain. Both embarkation and debarkation were a breeze in Vancouver. Our suite attendant meet us at our suite almost immediately. Surprisingly there was no corridor party this cruise. We also did not get to try the patio restaurant at night due to the weather. Ship is in great condition. Staff was great, although no one except those in the dining room remembered our names. Strange thing about the caviar, no matter where in the ship it is ordered it has to be delivered by room service so it usually took awhile to get it in the bar areas. Food was above average in all areas except for the Grill, which was phenomenal. Example, crab cake in the Grill was lump crab and no filler, but in the main dining room it was pureed and breaded. I was also surprised that the bars were missing some spirits like Pama.
Really nothing to do unless you do an excursion
Great UTV excursion, The town is nothing but jewelry shops. The national park building is worth a visit
Wow, being on a small ship with on board Zodiacs that allowed us to get up close to the glacier was the highlight of the trip
Small town, only ship in port. Loved the hike to rainbow falls in the rain
Better small town that most. loved seeing the bears and salmon spawning.
