Default Mendenhall Glacier Float Trip

We are booked on Vision of the Seas for 06/22/03. I was wondering if anyone has went on the Mendenhall Glacier float trip? How was it and did you get very wet while on the trip? Any info would be much appreciated.

I have gone on this trip, along with many others. Myself- I wouldn't consider it again. You get only a brief distant view of Mendenhall, the ride is tame and the scenery is mostly trees and backyards. Money is far better spent elsewhere. Only a few mile rapids that may get you wet.

I agree, spend your money elsewere. A bus trip up to Mendhall would be better spent. As well as a better view. Save the float trip for Ketichkan.
