Dear Patty,

Alaska is without question a beautiful state and the scenery is magnificent!

Having travelled on the Empress of the North before I knew the accommodation would be first class and it’s compactness made the experience of Alaska so much more intimate. Getting really close to the Glaciers and Whales was something this ship could achieve which larger vessels couldn’t. The crew and the guests were all very friendly which created a great atmosphere and just made the whole experience a pleasure.

Would I go to Alaska again, yes!

Would I do it on the Empress of the North, given the opportunity I would do it in a heartbeat!
