Sea Princess May 20 2011 to Alaska
Embarkation: San Francisco
Excursions - We went Whale Watching twice once in Ketchikan and once in Juneau. We did not get close on either and no good photos because of the distance. I know there are regulations on this, but I was disappointed with the distance on both. The cost was not worth the experience as we saw better views of Whales off the Cruise Ship. Our Animal expert Alan had a seminar on Alaska and was great in explaining the animals and Whales of Alaska. Sea Plane Ride we took was not over impressive for the cost involved in Juneau. Flew out over a couple of mountains and river and back with-out any impressive sights as for my taste. I have flown much in private plane, so this probably lowered my excitement of this. The Duck Boat Tour (took 2 of these) was enjoyable and both very informative of the areas. One was San Fransisco and the other was Juneau and the cost was reasonable. We rode the city buses in Ketchikan and Juneau and saw probably as much as the Tour Buses and enjoyed talking with the local people and getting a better sense of the areas from them. Cost was great - $1.50 and $0.75. We also rode the city buses in San Fransisco at $0.75 for Sr. Citizens and saw as much as the Tour Bus we took for $30.00.
Overall Cruise was Great and Cruising I feel is one of the best ways to take a vacation and relax and this one was no exception. Less
