August 2015 - 7 Night Alaska Hubbard Glacier Southbound (Seward To Vancouver) Cruise on Radiance of the Seas
Wilderness or Shopping?
First time in Alaska, first time on a cruise. Was slighlty disappointed on how touristy the ports were and the amount of jewelry stores at each port (the same exact stores). Was hoping to see more wild life, but I guess you do need to book those excursions if you want to see bears, moose, etc. The only animals we saw were eagles, porpoises and whales while cruising. Alaska was my 50th state to visit and after stopping at the ports with the same shops, I was over it by day 5. Highlight of the trip was the glacier.
