Review summary

This is one of the best trips we have ever had. The beauty of the nature & wildlife is indescribable. We loved seeing all the animals including the whales, bears, sea lions, sea otters, eagles, ravens, porpoise, puffins & etc. The ship was also very nice and the service was excellent. We recommend everyone go to Alaska if possible.
