  • Continue from the base of the gardens and ride a covered shuttle to the 580-foot level, stopping along the way as your guide points out the local flora and fauna on display in this natural setting.
  • Enjoy an awesome view of the Mendenhall wetlands, Gastineau Channel, Douglas Island, Auke Bay, and Admiralty Island from the boarded viewpoint above.
  • Discover the Alaskan Brewing Company for a tour of this growing local enterprise.
  • Learn how the company was started in 1986 by locals Geoff and Marcy Larson, this brewery now delivers over 100,000 barrels of beer throughout the western states and, of course, Alaska.
  • Hear how Alaskan Amber, their most popular beer, was started from a recipe once used by the Douglas City Brewing Company in the late 1800's.
  • Sample 4 different beers, browse through their display of beer bottles, and take home a complimentary sample size glass. Then enjoy the fully narrated motorcoach ride back to your ship.

And if your shore excursion experience was less than perfect - well, that's perfectly alright too - we'd like you to share your experience here too. The more reviews that are left, the better a resource this is for everybody.

How to leave a great review

All you need to do is share your honest opinions. (Just make sure it doesn't include personally-identifying information or pricing information.) Try to remember as many details as you can about your experience - the more you can add to it, the better. We'll also ask you to score the excursion based on Value, Convenience... and perhaps most importantly, Fun.

Why reviews are important

Reviews help cruisers just like you make more informed decisions when planning ways to spend their time ashore. They also help Carnival understand which shore excursion operators are providing our guests with fun experiences that meet their expectations, so that we can constantly improve our shore excursion lineup across all ports of call that Carnival visits.
