Review summary

Our Voyage of the Glaciers Cruise in early September was AWESOME!! Saw lots of wildlife & weather was sunny & dry. Bald eagles, Brown bears, Alaskan mountain goats, Sea Otters, Seals, Beluga Whales. If you want to see lots of glaciers as well, go on this cruise. You won't be disappointed!! ;-)

Our cabin was PERFECT for an Alaskan Cruise!!! If we didn't feel like going to the top deck of the ship, we could still enjoy the fantastic view from our warmer balcony. :-)
