May 2016 - Coral Princess to Alaska - Gulf of Alaska
We enjoyed our trip to Alaska. This was our 3rd trip there. We have done a 3 day land-7 day cruise and a 7 day escorted land-7 day cruise in the past. Enjoyed the views of the glaciers, whale watching and views of nature in general. The only drawback was the buses after we left the ship did not get us to Vancouver Airport in a timely manner because of traffic. When we got to the airport the kiosks would not accept our passports to give us our luggage tags. Therefore we had to stand in a long line for customer assistance where there were only 3 people servicing the line. We had a 10:30 flight. Around 10 A.M. a woman asked if anyone had a 10:30 flight. There were a couple of us. She took us out of the line and started to work on getting us our luggage tags. By then the system had already transferred to the desk in the back. She had to make a call to have them release the system back to her so she could get us our tags. She then put a sticker on our ticket and we had to run to security and then to the gate. We made that flight but 2 of our party of 9 did not. When we arrived in Toronto it was a real nightmare as the walk was very long, there was no transportation to help get to our new gate and the chaos was unexcuseable.
