Booked the 7.5 hour cruise mostly to see wildlife. We had already taken a flight and landed on a glacier so animals were our priority. Weather was rainy and chilly. Boat and staff were all great. Food was very good. Animals were all in hiding....More

I understand you have reserved seating. I've heard that you only get seats in a heated area if you have ordered the dinner? Is that true? Thanks!
