Review Summary

This was a great cruise. Juneau was beautiful. We did the Tram and there isn't a lot at the top. Saw the short movie, which was good and saw a rescued Eagle at top and of course a souvenir store.  In Scagway we did the White Pass train ride. Great scenery here also. Town is small but several things to do here. Wife saw a porcupine and a bear was sighted a few times although we didn't see it. Going into Tracy Arm Forge is spectacular. We went to Dawes glacier. We got about 1/2 mile from the glacier and the ship did a 360 so anyone with a balcony had close view for pictures. It was fantastic. Also seals on the small icebergs that had broken off. Next was Victoria, British Columbia. Just did a little souvenir shopping here. On return to Seattle we took a taxi to the airport, $40 set rate to airport.  Make sure you have time cause there is a lot of traffic in Seattle.
