My husband and I were very please with our cruise. Although we were somewhat disappointed in the Misty Fjords shore excursion, this was probably due more to the time of year than any fault of the tour. We were very pleased with the Best of Juneau and the Best of Skagway shore excursions and loved the gorgous views in Glacier Bay and College Fjord. The service was outstanding, in fact we stopped by the main desk and increased out tips from 10% to 15% per day as we felt that the staff were extremely hard working. We were somewhat disppointed in the dining room luncheons though the dinners were generally very good. My husband did feel that the alcoholic beverage which he had tasted terrible and was very overpriced for very little alcohol. Also, I would not recommend the train trip between Seward and Anchorage as it was a disappointment. Overall though, the cruise was a wonderful experience. In fact we have change our next booking to Hawaii from Norwegian to Holland America.
