7 Night Voyage Of The Glaciers Southbound (Anchorage To Vancouver)
Sail Date: June 25, 2014
Ship: Island Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The land portion of the journey was excellent and was organized very well. The cruise was excellent as well except certain meals were not as good as in the past. Service was excellent. If an individual takes a land package, I would recommend going north to south and doing land first since it is very tiring and you can then relax on the first few sea days.
