Itinerary: Glacier Bay

We enjoyed cruising the Inside Passage and visiting the glaciers. Everything was just beautiful.

Food was good. Enjoyed the evening dinners and the Steak House.

Stateroom was great. We got a balcony on the rear of the ship and enjoyed the a very good view throughout the cruise. We also enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the evenings and listing to the prop wash, very relaxing.

We didn't attend to many activities except for the family stage show normally each evening around 8PM. Most of our time was spent relaxing on our balcony.

Juneau we took the Evening Whale Watch excursion. The weather was cool, cloudy and off and on rain. We saw a glimpse of a few humpback whales. Water was very rough, boat spent a lot of time running around in heavy fog looking for whales. Would advise against this excursion any time weather is rainy and foggy.

Took the Steam Engine Train ride in Skagway. Very beautiful trip up through the mountains into Canada.

Attended the Lumberjack Show in Ketchikan. Good show, but priced too high.

Enjoyed the trip very much, first time to Alaska. Enjoyed taking in the view of the Glaciers while sitting on our balcony.
