While we've all recommended different excursions I really don't think there's a "bad " one in the bunch!

I don't usually "gush" , but our Alaska B2B cruise on the Island Princess was incredible! We didn't spend big buck's for excursions (no helicopters), but had a wonderful experience!

Can't wait to go back ,
