Check in was very easy. Luggage retrieval was efficient the night we arrived, and drop off was easy when we left the next morning. Staff seemed to enjoy their jobs and were helpful and friendly

This is a wonderful time with family and friends as you view the Alaskan country side on a smooth ride through the mountains. A wonderful trip from Anchorage to Whittier to catch the Cruise ship. Strongly recommend.
