Default Binoculars

We have two types of binoculars:a. small compact size 12x25 and b.regular size 10x50. Are these adequate for Alaska? We will be cruising in mid August and have a balcony. Is there a website with recommendations for binoculars and camera lenses?

Those should be fine, just remember to take them with you and not leave them in the cabin. On my last Alaska cruise I bought some nice Minolta 10x40 that I really like thu Amazon.com

I didn't save the websites but I found a lot of good recommendations by doing a search under "Birdwatching" A lot of the sites had reviews and tips on binoculars in general.

I get a lot of use out of my 10x50 and take my 16x50 as well but a very narrow field of view for my marine wildlife viewing. Balcony viewing can be fine but for whale watching - you increase your sightings by double being out on the front open decks.
