Wolf, Moose, Caribou, Eagles, Whales and Bear! " Our trip was excellent. The room, with the upgrades, was amazing! We saw many
eagles (bald and golden), one bear,
many whales, including one breach, seals, one bear, one wolf, moose and
caribou, and many smaller animals..
If we travelled during salmon run, we probably would have seen more bear and
eagles. The scenery is to die for, the vistas spectacular.
The ship was great; service, food, etc were all great. Thanks for everything."
