    Would like some reviews on the tour from Princess called Mendenhall Glacier and Whale Quest. Was it worth the money? Did you enjoy the tour? How long did you stay at the glacier vs the whale watching? Was the water when on the catamaran rough or smooth? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

    If you are talking about the Helicopter ride to Mendenhall (and walk on it) - it was FANTASTIC - would not miss that for the world. The evening whale quest was good (saw some - but not like in the pictures!!) - but if I had to choose between the two - I would pick the ride and walk on Mendenhall. Definitely worth the money. We stayed on the glacier approximately 25 minutes. Even if you just get close on a catamaran - it should be good - but i didn't do that one.

    Unfortunately, no it's not the Helicopter ride to Mendenhall. Would love to do that but way to expensive for a family. This tour just goes to Mendenhall and then afterwards goes Whale Watching. Has anyone experienced this tour with Princess?

    I was on the Radiance the same day the Island Princess was in port in Juneau. I took a Mendenhall tour with the Radiance. As we were leaving, a few passengers from the Princess were left behind at the glacer and as they missed their bus to the whale watching. So if you take that tour, be carefull. The tour bus will not wait if you are late.
