Default Legend of the Seas - Seward - Vancouver, 8/29

Hello. Anyone cruising on Legend of the Seas, Seward to Vancouver 8/29-9/5? My husband & I are first timers and it's our wedding anniversary/his b-day. I've heard mixed reviews about the line but hope it's a great experience anyway. We're doing some nights in Denali & plenty of excellent excursions along the way (bear watching, whale watching, golfing (I know, my husband), glacier/dog sled, sea otter trip....hope that's enough

Does anyone have any advice, tips, suggestions--those that have been on this cruise line during this time of the year in Alaska?

Thank you!

We returned on The Legend on June 27th. We had a land, ship package, starting at Fairbanks, Denali, Talkeeta. Ankorage ,Aleyeska, Seward, then on the ship. The hotels were excellent, side trips wre great. We especiallly loved Jeff Kings Homestead Tour with his Alaska Huskies out of Denali. Also outstanding was Resurection Bay tour out of Seward., which included a Salmon Bake on Fox Islan d. The weather was exceptional on land - saw Mr. McKinnley on a clear beautiful day. Sorry we didn't take the plane trip, and landing on a glacier. Dispite some not so great reports, we thought the ship was great. Our room was spotless, and our Cabin Stewart very courteous, and never in the way, did a great job. Also our waiter was terrific. We had early seating, which sometimes we were not too happy with, but we don't like late seating, because if you are the last to be served, sometimes miss the activities. We much prefer "Open Seating", which some of the ships have. We thought the food was great on TheLegand. We were disappointed not to get into Hubbasrd Glacier, because of the weather. The weather was great in Juneau = where we went to Mendenhal Glacier, Salmon Hatchery, and beautiful Glacier Gardens!! We took the train in Skagway (weather not great), but interesting. Red Dog Saloon was fun. Enjoyed Sitka , but the weather was drizzly. Rain in Ketchican, went to see the Totem Poles, (take an Umbrella for sure) Misty Fjords was beutiful. All in all we had a great time, with no real criticisms, except would like to hav had better weather in a few places - but that's Alaska. Picked up a couple of fascinating books - short easy reading "Two Old Women" and "Bird Girl" by Velma Wallis - stories about Alaska's Athabaskan Indians , by a native girl who lives in Fairbanks and the Yukon They are delightful, and really take you into their world. Have a great trip - Happy Anniversary, and Birthday. Dorothy and John Lyans - La Canada, California
