The boat ride was excellent. Plenty of room for everyone. Included binoculars. Tour guides were very knowledgeable. Food that was provided was excellent and well as the taste testings of various Alaska products. The vistas were spectacular.

This was a spectacular place that is unlike any other part of the United States that I have seen (and I’ve been to 48 of the 50 states). Very impressive land structures.

Nice tour, but it was too long. Nothing they can do about it because it takes two hours to get to misty fjords and two to return. They did educate you both ways. Clam chowder was served as well as some salmon on crackers. The...More

Most passengers were unhappy having to sit on the bus for about 30 minutes while the driver waited to fill it. It would have been easy to make two short trips to the ship.
