August 2015 - Norwegian Sun to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska
We were fortunate to be able to cruise 2 weeks and the first week had excellent weather. At Ketchikan we enjoyed the excursion to the Totem Bight State Park. As we were leaving the port we spotted lots of whales spouting!. In Juneau the sun was shining so decided to take a seaplane trip to see 5 glaciers. It was an amazing trip. When we reached Skagway we took the White Pass railroad trip to see the beautiful scenery. Enjoyed the Glacier Bay and Hubbard Glacier viewing. because our captain spun the ship around at each glacier so everyone had a great view of these glaciers. In Seward the cruise line only offered one excursion so we booked one independently with Kenai Fjords Tours to the national park. During this cruise we saw lots of whales spouting, sea lions, eagles, and beautiful sights. They served a chicken wrap with a glass of water and later a delicious chocolate chip cookie baked during our trip. Icy Strait Point didn't have a lot of excursions that we were interested in so just walked around the shopping area. Due to poor weather conditions we did not get to visit any glaciers on the return trip.
