7 Night Alaska Sawyer Glacier (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 19, 2016
Ship: Explorer of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 3718
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

This Seattle based trip offers a great sampling of Alaska.  We enjoyed the cable car ride up the mountain in Juneau.  King crab is a must at Tracy's, walking distance from ship.  Mendenhall Glacier was spectacular.  Skagway was fun, though obviously overloaded with jewelry stores.  Tracy Arm Fjord/Elliot Fjord was a definite highlight.  Ship captain got us to within a mile of glacier with icebergs floating all around.  Only disappointment was that we wanted to see more of Victoria BC but was unable because of long walk on pier.  No shuttles were offered as were at Juneau.

Ship Tip

The steam room and sauna were free to use, which was nice, unlike some of the bigger ships.

Be aware no shuttles available from ship to tour buses, cabs. Long walk for those of us with physical limitations.
