Excellent scenery in Tracy Arm.. Also excellent food and entertainment on ship. The shops staff at Juneau, Skagway, and Ketchikan were very friendly and helpful.
Make sure you bring your camera and have it all charged up because great photo opportunities abound on this expedition. Yes it is a long day but it is worth it....it takes 2 1/2 hours to arrive at this most amazing place....consisting of glaciers, icebergs, calving, eagles, waterfalls, seals ect ...definitely would recommend
Thanks to Cap'n Steve and the crew of the Adventure Bound for a delightful trip to Tracy Arm. Nice views of South Sawyer glacier calving with lots of seals. Good people and a good crew, Snacks were reasonably priced. Gorgeous scenery and a nice easy trip.
One of the most memorable experiences I have had. Sure the ride out is 2 hours but well worth it when you get there (most people either snooze or take an electronic device to pass the time) The crew are friendly & amenities well organised - food, hot chocolate (my kids loved) coffee etc. all available when needed & the boat is very comfortable & warm (it gets really cold up near the glaciers) Clean, functioning toilets etc. The boat is small enough to get in close & there is plenty of deck space to get a good view. The skipper was excellent, really going out of his way to get super close up to ice bergs, glaciers & waterfalls, he also adjusts the boat position to give a variety of views - excellent & you get great visibility whether on deck or inside. The glaciers themselves were just breathtaking & we were lucky enough to see calving too & experience "the waves". My whole family ( including kids 5 & 7) loved this trip. To end it off we were lucky enough to site Orca on the way back, again the skipper manoeuvred us to a good position & the Orca bid farewell by diving directly underneath the boat, fantastic. Book this trip!
Arrived on Celebrity Infinity, oh boy what a great copany, when they say 6 star dinning they meant it!! Tracy arm we went up, yust gob stopping is the only way to describe it !!! Icebergs, the scenery,the bears, with good eyes you see many. This was one of the best trips in my life!! , and i have now seen most of the world!!
Best cruise ever ... Must do day tours at each port. We walked on the glacier in Juneau was breathtaking!! Saw a black bear catching salmon at another port stop. Did a city tour in Victoria BC and famous train ride in Skagway. Must do in a life time.
This was our first cruise ever and we chose Alaska. We boarded Star Princess and we had a great time even though we can't participate in every event because we have a 2-year-old in tow. Make sure you get a room with balcony because the scenery was breathtaking and the air was so refreshing. We even saw whales and other wildlife from the comfort of our room's balcony. The food on the cruise was abundant with several choices of fine dining and they were pretty good. Our room steward was nice and helpful. One drawback was we are alittle bit bothered by the smell of cigarette smoke. We couldn't find the source but We suspected it's our neighbor who smoked in his room eventhough it's prohibited.
The crew was friendly and efficient. They serve sandwiches, cup-of-soup and hot drinks for lunch. The captain was knowledgeable and engaging. So if you don't mind a long day, go for it.
Went to Alaska Princess cruise with my husband & family, it was a very great holiday & I enjoy & love everything. the food, our room,& services. we always go for a tour every time the ship is in land
The cruise through the Tracy Arm is an unforgettable experience of a lifetime. If one wishes to see the real beauty of Alaska, then this full day cruise is a must.
The cruise departed at 8 am from Juneau dock on a misty day with light rain and clouds on the horizon. Soon the capton announced the sighting of two whales. He steered the boat as close as possible for all to watch and click the diving whales.
As the boat entered the Tracy Arm channel, it was like entering a dream world, tall mountains covered with snow sending down waterfalls. Soon we sighted three bears, and beautifully shaped floating icebergs with birds sitting on them. Further the capton almost entered a very big waterfall for all to get a feel of the force of water cascading down.
As we progressed, the sea was filled with innumerable floating icebergs, some of them a deep sky blue colour. The capton took a full circle around two huge icebergs for all to see the blue coloured crystalline ice structure.
Finally, we reached the Sawyer glacier, a beautiful sight. We were taken very close so that we could experience the carvings from near. Later, we were taken to another arm of Sawyer glacier which though smaller, was a sight to watch.
Overall, this was a real adventure that we would like to do again, if possible.
