Amazing dancing

The dancing and story telling was amazing. The lighting added to the atmosphere and it was a show that should not be missed.

I enjoyed this one hour show. This is a small town and learning about their traditions and culture made for a lovely day. I appreciated that it wasn't too expensive so we could feel good about only an hour long show. Good job!

The Tribal Dance performance was outstanding. They explained the names of the tribes and preformed Tribal dances even involved the audience. Well worth the time and cost.

Very skeptical to do this but forced the family....it was good for adults but kids were bored but ironically I found them quoting things they learned from the show throughtout the remainder of our cruise---kids ages 12 &16

Firstly, I do not understand why our cruise company, Celebrity Cruises, has this godforsaken place on their itinerary. We spent something like 3 hours in our disembarkation process as the ship does not dock here and you need tenders to take you ashore. Once there, there is actually NOTHING to be done here except for the extremely highly priced and... More

Icy Strait Point required a tender ride to shore so we opted to head out a little later after the rush. This excursion was sold out when I tried to book it on board our ship but once ashore, there was a tour sales desk, just up the stairs from the tender dock and to the right, that quickly fit...

This was our second visit to Icy Strait Point, and we wanted to be sure on this visit to see the Tribal Dance show. On shore, you are able to purchase tickets to the show 'only' - whereas onboard your ship, if you want to see only the show, then it is tied to other things to do on the... More

The tram ride went out along the bay, was nice but nothing special. We saw at a distance an otter and an eagle - not sure it you would spot other things at other times of the year. The tribal dance was the first that we had experienced. It was very simply done, and seem to represent the tribe and... More

neat oral history stories and costumes/drumming. Enjoyed this. It was combined with a tram ride which was ok. Saw Sitka fawns and eagle. But for price.....not great value. Wish I would have went with the wildlife tour as they saw brown bear...
