The itinerary for this cruise aligned with the places we wanted to visit, based upon the research of reviews and opinions. It didn't disappoint; it exceeded our expectations in every way. It didn't matter what side of the boat you were on. When we went to Glacier Bay the Captain turned the boat so both sides of the boat received equal viewing time of the Glacier's calving.
The Stateroom was clean and the Staff was very friendly. She went out of her way to make sure we had what we needed.
The excursion staff was exceptional. One of our Flight Tours was canceled due to a flight incident. They went above and beyond and booked us another Flight Tour and added in a Crab Lunch. GREAT JOB!!
The only reason I didn't give an exceptional rating was our Dining experience. We felt the food quality has OK, the waitstaff did not seem to care about your experience, we waited on a few occasions over 30 minutes for breakfast and seating was cramped. We chose anytime dining to have the option to eat alone if we wanted to, but the tables were so close the waitstaff could not fit between the tables. We should have picked traditional Dining and sat with a group.
Arrived and went onto the boat. Did notice long lines for folks coming coming directly from the United States. We flew through Canada.
Scenery was excellent and food was outstanding!!
Took the two hour Trek. Flew in by Helicopter and landed on the Glacier. Met our guide Team who were excellent. We were able to climb over a few small glacier walls, walk through a Glacier Stream and straddle a crevace. Highly recommend.View All 138 Helicopter Tour Reviews

Took a two ride through a National Park. The guide team was excellent and the horses were well behaved, even if your a beginner. Take bug spray, horses do attract bugs.View All 17 Horseback Riding Reviews
Stay outside on the boat!! Captain turned the boat so both sides received about 30 minutes of viewing the Glacier calving. Unbelievable!! One of our highlights!!
