The Weather was awesome despite the horror stories shared from others, they spoke of bugs and other insects that would be intolerable. I found nothing like that to be true. We enjoyed the Cruise immensely from day 1 until the day we had to leave.

Review summary

The idea of traveling to Alaska was foreign to us for many reasons, the myths surrounding cold unbearable weather, rain, insects and a host of other insane comments over the years from folks....that was phony baloney . I was amazed at how affordable the vacation package was and the list of excursions that was being offered. We didn't do everything, but boy we did had a blast, the Helicopter ride to Mendenhall Glacier, Dog sledding, Ziplining and the unforgettable Bear hiking through the forest was funny yet extremely entertaining. Thanks Island Princess
