Great service but would skip Glacier Bay

Sail Date: June 20, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

The ship and staff were first rate. But Glacier Bay was a disappointment. A full day and just four glaciers, two of them unimpressive, one five miles away (Johns Hopkins) and one with some calving. College Fjord was MUCH better, including Prince Wm Sound. Would recommend the Carnival cruise and trade Glacier Bay for Sitka.

Pros: The level of service was outstanding

Cons: Not much entertainment, hard mattresses

Recommends Diamond Princess? No.

Skagway, Alaska
Cute buildings. Rent a car and drive up the highway to Carcross. More time effective and much less expensive than the train. Avis or Sourdough Rentals.
Don't Miss: Mountains in and around town.
Juneau, Alaska
Cute buildings, Mendenhall Glacier.
Ketchikan, Alaska
Not that much to do here. A few old stores on Creek Street don't take a lot of time.
Don't Miss: ---
