We went on a coastal cruise stayed in Danalli nat'park it was so beautiful and we saw all types of animals moose , bear ,eagles seal's, deer really close up saw ice calving and the temp was 80 /85 degrees had small earthquake (they have them all the time ) while we had lunch on the mountain. We stopped at several towns on the way Seward, Saskatchewan and others there is so much to do and see 2 weeks was not enough .The scenery and sightseeing and people watching were fabulous watched fishing village women prepare salmon for drying so fast with her knife wow and a native girl in a hand made coat that when she put up the hood it was one most beautiful things I ever have seen .you will not be disappointed if you go it was so comfortable weather wise we had to buy some clothes as we brought sweaters and long pants I would go back in a heartbeat

FANTASTIC!! The complete tour - beginning in San Francisco, then to Juneau, Skagway, Fjord Arm, Ketchikan, Victoria, BC, San Francisco. The entire staff made the trip extremely enjoyable. The only downside was only 1/2 day in Victoria. All ports were fun, with a variety of excursions with affordable costs. This is our 3rd Princess Cruise and we will do more. Princess is the best!

If you want to see breathtaking views of tall trees on huge mountains and a grand view of magnificent glaciers don't miss the cruise trip in Alaska.Nature's bounty is still maintained here and Mans interference seems minimum so far.The voyage by cruise was superb with Norwegian cruise line providing very good environment,comfort and facilities to enjoy the trip. late night view of moonlight falling on ocean on the backdrop of pacific ocean is inexpianable. Glacier bay and Huber glaciers are huge and real gods gift to mankind to enjoy.
Vancouver is tourist friendly city and very beautiful surroundings parks and mountains.People are very helpful and transport is good. Good Weather and fresh air is a bonus.
The special attraction is witnessing salmon's(fish) life cycle in creeks of Alaska.These fishes come back to river creeks only for breeding and male dies immediately after spawning.The young ones spend 2 years in river and then move to ocean to spend adult period before returning to river for breeding.Besides being a important occupation these fishes are part of food chain and provide nutrition of many animals which hibernate in winter and need nutrition to survive.

Went on 2 glacier tours, this is by far the most personal and informative tour. Ben was so knowledgable, he is a native Alaskan and will show you places on the tour the larger companies will not.Lunch was on our own and fantastic, I'll leave that for a surprise! Don't miss this tour to Portage Glacier. It was the best.

This was a highlight of our trip. Dan from anchorage tours picked us up at radiance of the seas to drive us to anchorage airport. We had a great visit to wilderness conservation centre and saw lots of orphaned bears etc which had been rescued. This tour was excellent and thoroughly enjoyed by 4 adults and 2 kids
