Review summary

We enjoyed it very much. It was smooth therefore I wasn't seasick which was great. The service was fantastic. There were many people we observed in the Ocean View café who were less than polite to the waiters & other staff. Their bad manners annoyed us. The ports were good to great (especially Juneau.) Unforgettable experience seeing the brown bears in the wild & the seaplane was exciting.

Unable to get close to the glacier due to ice floating in the water & the captain said it was too dangerous.

Juneau, Alaska

5 out of 5
We did a seaplane tour to a wilderness area where we saw 5 brown bears come & go, fishing for salmon. We spent 2.5 hours watching them, our guides were fantastic. It was the highlight of our trip.

Skagway, Alaska

4 out of 5
We did a tour to see the Sled dogs which we really enjoyed. We had a Iditarod sled dog demonstration, got to pat the dogs then hold a puppy. It was fantastic. We also did the Klondike summit (by coach) which was enjoyable.
