Day One: Embarkation from Vancouver. Captain's announcement made it all sad and teary. Horizon Court food awesome. Ever changing dining options. Day Two: At sea. Children liked Kids Program, scavenger hunts... Not so many chair hoggers, for it was chilly. Pool was heated to good temp. Day Three: Ketchikan. Highly suggest the ziplining excursions. Pricey, but worth it. So much fun. Day Four: Juneau. Sleepy Town, but lots of scenery. Day Five: Skagway. Very sleepy town, but friendly people. Lots of stores downtown to shop for souvenirs at cheap prices. Day Six: At sea. Same as always. However, children (crazy children) were in the pool, both. All day long. Day Seven: Last Day. Crew made embarkation very sad, though isn't that the way it is suppose to be? General: Really swift embarkation and disembarkation. Friendly crew from Indonesia and the Phillipines ( 99% of them). Except for the guy who served ice cream at the ice cream bar. Always seems irritated. Staterooms were very large with flat screen Tvs. Thanks for the chocolate! Helpful tips: Photos, worth their price. Promenade Deck large sweeping views Take advantage of Park Rangers on Alaskan Cruises

Great Cruise

Cabin Review

Oceanview
Cabin OE 8202
8202: bad location. Though you get to see everything first. Quiet. Too forward, a lot of walking. Then again, you need to walk off the pounds.
