May 2015 - Norwegian Sun to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska
I think this Alaska cruise that includes Glacier Bay, inside passage, and the 3 main cities (Skagway, Ketchikan, Juneau) is a must for everyone once in a lifetime. It was fun to stay in Vancouver a few days before the cruise. The scenery on the ship and at the ports was amazing. We got very lucky with the weather. I loved the dance/singing shows on the ship. My one main complaint was that I felt that our shore excursions were too expensive for what was offered. The American Airlines shuttle to Mendenhall Glacier was too rushed and too expensive. I would recommend just taking the $20 shuttle from the port at Juneau and take as much time as you would like visiting the glacier and the visitors' center. Also the photography tour (American Airlines) was too expensive in Skagway. I would recommend the train in Skagway instead. Also, you are not allowed to take food off the ship, but they did not give snacks on the tours, so I was very hungry. Overall, though, a fantastic time on this cruise.
