Date of Trip: September 6, 2002
Itinerary: Alaska

The Juneau/Skagway/Ketchikan/Hubbard Glacier Route was Spectacular, and the ship/crew were fantastic. We saw Orcas, humpbackwhales, bald eagles, and porpoises from the ship either in port or while we were sailing. We highly recommend the Mendenhall Glacier helicopter tour (a Juneau memory of a lifetime) and White Pass Scenic railway/Kayak adventure tour (Skagway). We had a balcony room, which came in handy because there was always fantastic scenery while we were moving and we were glued to the view (not wanting to miss a moment or any wildlife that appeared)

Public Areas
The Constellation lounge was a great place to spend the afternoon watching for wildlife and enjoying the view. Rendez-Vous and the Martini bar were great venue for evening socializing. Also, the thalosotherapy (sp?) pool was fantastic, and there was plenty of hot tubs available for this colder-weather route. There seemed to be plenty of places to soak in the view (also a good in the Oceanview Cafe/Grill)

Food and Service
Our Waiter (Mladen), assistant waiter (Elmer), Maitre'd (Rudy), and cabin steward (Nelson) all were great to us. Mladen had anticipated our likes and dislikes by the end of the cruise, bringing us our special requests before we even ordered them. Nelson had kept a blanket handy for us after making up the bed after we'd taken one from the closet early in the trip. They seem to really want to please. The dinners were all great, though I couldn't get into most of the soups. Lunch and breakfasts buffets became a little routine by the end of the trip, but alternate options were always available (pizza, pasta, sushi, etc). The Trellis for breakfast was a nice change from the buffet.

We had a low-end balcony room and had ample space. Friends we were traveling with had oceanview rooms that were the same size. Closet and drawer space was ample, and soundproofing was good. Shower was sufficient.

We attended 2 shows (Spectacle of Broadway) and one with a violinist and juggling comedian. Both were great and kept the audience entertained and very responsive.

On-board organized activities were a little light, but we spent time in the thalasotherapy pool and it more than made it for it. We played trivia once, which was fun. Some of the ports (Juneau, Skagway) were much better because of the great excursions we had - otherwise we would have tired of shopping all day in the ports (stores became very similar after a while). Creek Street in Ketchikan was fun -make sure you see it at low tide to catch all the salmon trying to get up stream. Great sauna too, with ocean views!

Who Goes
~10-15% 20-30 year olds, ~20-30% were 30-50 yr olds, and ~ 40-60% were 60+yrs... Everyone was really friendly and seemed to be enjoying themselves.
