By Dempster, Sutton Coldfield on 30th Jun 2014
This was our 6th cruise with Princess and we've been on RCI, Holland America, & Thomson so we have a reasonable idea of what's what. First the bad news: two back-to-back 7-day Caribbean cruises on Caribbean Princess were our introduction to cruising in...  Read More >>

We went to Iceland /Greenland- a whale hotspot. You can see whales for nothing as you cruise on the ship. We saw so many we even got blase about seeing them in the end. Amazed me why people would pay to go on a whalewatching trip! Just take a good pair of bins, a whale id book and save yourself some money!

we did whale watching from bar harbour last year when on an NCL cruise. researched the price online direct with the local firm, http://www.barharborwhales.com, but found they were only about $5.00 dollars cheaper than buying the exactly same trip via the cruise ship. it transpired trip left late and returned late but the cruise ship delayed departure for us..... the whale watching is done on a large fast catermaran and when it motors it is cold on the open upper decks...we were unlucky (apparently) in seeing only one basking shark and a small whale but the commentary was very informative and i learnt alot about the local lobser fishing industry......you will be amazed at the number of lobster pots

I would be wary of booking an oceangoing trip privately (and we rarely use ship's excursions) because of the many things that can cause delays. Incidentally the Americans might be a bit annoyed to find that Maine has been handed over to Canada! (LOL)
