Cruise to Alaska

Sail Date: July 04, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

The Gloden Princess is a very nice ship. There was plenty to do for the whole family. The Tracy Arm Fjord was awsome to see. The captin did a great job getting us in and out of the narrow passage. There were lots of ice burgs to see. When we reached the glacier the captin stopped the boat and did a 360 degree turn so all could see. We also saw a Bald Eagle's nest with the Eagle in it. This was about 150 yards from the ship.
Make sure you take binoculars to see the wild life up close.

Pros: The scenery was incredible.

Cons: Now we want to move there.

Recommends Golden Princess? Yes!
