Great Alaskan Experience Cruise

Sail Date: June 03, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

By doing 7 days going , able to see and experience many Alaskan Ports of Call and many sights and tours.  The weather was great with sunshine at ports.  Saw numerous wild life and learned a great deal from the tours.  Also had plenty of time to shop for jewelry and watches which we did and now have them as reminders of this great trip.  Remember - you may only do this once, so don't shot change the trip by not taking tours and buys souvenirs.

Great having a balcony to be able to sit out and watch as we cruised in private.

Fast and easy.

Many to choose from and have enough time in ports to do these and they are great.
