Grand Princess

July 2015 - Grand Princess to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska

Cruising through Glacier National Park

highlight of cruise was the glacier national park, unfortunately the weather was not the greatest, but cleared and were able to see the glacier. Commentary by park rangers was great but difficult to hear in some of the open decks. Did a whale watching tour in Juneau booked through cruises only excursions, was wonderful, small boat, got close to whales and operators were great. Helicopter tour booked through cruise line was good, landed on glacier, weight overage charge was ridiculous, especially since traveling with 2 children who pay same price, but greatly under limit, would think they would consider that when charging one passenger for 10 lbs over limit.   Disembarkation was the smoothest ever experienced! Was very stress free, got off boat, got luggage, through immigration and into taxi in about 40 minutes!  Recommend taking taxi to Vancouver airport rather that pay for bus. Was $40 including tip.  Service in dining room and even cabin was slow, however very personable and pleasant.

krallalice's Tips

Ketchikan, Alaska - Booked a seaplane tour independently through Island Airways, was great. Local company, local pilot, Michelle, was wonderful!
Juneau, Alaska - Don't need to buy bus ticket from town, they do not charge you. Whale watching was great! Plenty of shopping
Cruise Glacier Bay - Make sure you are on a deck where you can hear the commentary, stay away from the enclosed pool area, cannot hear
Grand Princess Grand Princess - Get a cabin near elevators, hallways can be really long
