We always wanted to visit Alaska and see the glaciers, and this was the best way to do it. We had sunny weather in the 70s in each port and got to see plenty of wildlife--a bear with 2 cubs and bald eagles and blue heron in Ketchikan, humpback whales in a pod of 9 bubble feeding, and dog sledding in the Yukon from Skagway. We always love the nightly show entertainment on Princess in the theater. It was great choosing to eat Alaskan salmon in some form nearly every day.
