Our Amazing Whale Watch And Hike In Juneau
We went whale watching and got surrounded by Humpback whales! 🐋 Today we disembark Princess Cruises’ Majestic Princess at the first port of call for our Alaska cruise – Juneau! We set off on a photo safari hike along the Trail of Time in the Tongass National Forest, leading us to a lake with a breathtaking view of Mendenhall Glacier. A whale watching excursion was one of two things we were most excited for on this Alaska cruise (the other was cruising through Glacier Bay National Park, but more on that in a later vlog 😉). We capped off the day with dinner at Juneau’s famous Red Dog Saloon.
