Our cruise started out a bit rocky. We were in the terminal in Vancouver for over 4 hours in line to check in. This was because it was Labor Day and the Customs people were not in full force. That being aside, the cruise was a marvelous one. We had plenty to do on board and when it came to the ports, there was more than ample time in each to see and do most everything we wanted. When we got to the Glaciers, they were spectacular. there was so much caving, ( the falling off of the glacier wall ), it was a sight to be remembered for life.

we had been to Alaska before, but this time we found it to be extraordinary. We saw totem poles from the past and present, native Alaskans performing rituals, where the gold rush took place, and so much more that it is too numerous to go into in such a short space.

I highly recommend this cruise to anyone who loves history, animals, and great scenery.
