One of the stops on my Alaskan cruise with Norwegian cruise lines was Icy Straight point. At this port of call, I was able to do one of the things that I have always wanted to do: Whale Watching. I booked this excursion for my mom and I through Norwegian cruise lines, and it included an approximately 3 hour trip and beverages (beer and soft drinks). We had expert guides aboard our boat, and they were able to track packs of whales. We saw orca whales and humpback whales. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking. I would definitely recommend this excursion if going to Alaska.
