He had Rob Watkins, the vantriloquist and he was SUPERB!!!
Also had Carl Strong, the comedian and he was very funny. I wish he did more comedy though!!!

I enjoyed that the room was away from others (back of the ship) but during the day there was a weird slurping noise (very loud) that they claimed was "maintenance". I couldn't take a nap until they stopped it (which they always quickly did, if I called to complain).
There were only 2 nights that were really rough. I waited too long to take a sleeping aid the first night, but the 2nd night, I took it by 8 pm and slept through it.

Dog SleddingVery disappointed with the short (maybe 30 minutes) dog sled that was advertised as an "adventure" for at least an hour long.View All 147 Dog Sledding Reviews
The helicopter ride was much better, to and from the dog base on top of the glacier.
Whale WatchingWe saw sea lions, seals, and otters. At the very end of the experience (we were late for the ship, with them making sure we saw a whale of some sort, because they guaranteed it, or had to give us all back $100/each) we saw five top fins of female Orcas (from what they claimed). It was very uneventful (we can see Orcas in Seattle). We never saw even one blow hole or humpback sighting at all.View All 825 Whale Watching Reviews
KetchikanFull of ship's expensive jewelry stores. Apparently the workers get shipped to this place just to man the stores. I would rather it be more authentic and full of locals, not implants.View All 1,765 Ketchikan Cruise Port Reviews

KodiakNo bear sightings for me, but a couple went on a bird excursion (private) and they saw a bear up close (unexpectedly) and got a BEAUTIFUL photo!!!View All 45 Kodiak Cruise Port Reviews
