We took our cruise in June and had a wonderful time. The cruise was excellent, however, we did have a problem with our cabin. We booked Room #9598 because we had to have the extra pullman bed. The Alaskan Cruise brochure shows this cabin with a pullman, and this was verified when we made our reservations six months in advance. When we arrived on the ship, low and behold, Cabin 9598 does not have a pullman - trust me! After some long and hard discussions with Guest Relations, we were very fortunate to get room #9612 (due to a cancellation)and it DOES have a pullman! The only other issue we had was the two hour wait after the cruise ended, trying to get a taxicab to take us back to our hotel in VanCouver. Our first port of call was Sitka; it's very small; we did a little shopping, but there's not much to do there. Hubbard Glacier was awesome and very memorable. The White Pass train ride in Skagway and gold paning at Liarsville was fun. (We went at 12 noon which was a good time and suggest you sit on the left side of the train for the best views). Our final stop was Juneau where we rode the tram to Mount Roberts and took the bus to MendenHall Glacier. These two excursions are a must. The views are spectular.
