Had a great time - the ship was wonderful, the tour guide informative and very personable. Saw glaciers, whales,seals, and eagles, eagles and more eagles. Wish I had spent extra for a shipboard tour to see bears - but that was just my bad luck.

This is a wonderful way to learn the history of our 49th state. You will not be disappointed in the way in it unfolds before your eyes. Just seeing the glaciers and whales is amazing enough.

If one has a burning desire to see different aspects (e.g., glaciers, totem poles, wildlife refuges)of Alaska up close and also listen to the history of Alaska, then this program is for that person.
