SimonCommunity's Tips

Ketchikan, Alaska - No need for an excursion! Walk to Cape Fox Lodge for lunch, walk to Creek Street, SE Alaska Discovery Center and the Deer Mountain Hatchery & Eagle Center. City bus to Totem Bight State Park. Easy to see/do it all independently.
Cozumel, Mexico - Xcaret Eco Park excursion is a great way to spend the day. Be sure to bring swim suit and water shoes so you can do the underground rivers. Due to ferry ride to the mainland, it's best/easiest to book direct through your cruise line.

Disney Dream Disney Dream - Check out the Midship Detective Agency, an interactive game for both adults and kids featuring the Muppets! It's a bit different every time you play.
Skagway, Alaska - A great alternative to the White Pass & Yukon route "White Pass Summit" dockside excursion from the cruise line is the "Skagway/Frasier Bus-Rail Combo RT" tour bookable direct with the railroad (wpyr.com) Longer train trip all the way to Frasier, Canada & return by bus. Bring your passport!
Ketchikan, Alaska - Ketchikan is a very walkable port, with most of the sites an easy walk from the cruise piers. Skip the pricey city tour and head out on your own.
Allure of the Seas Allure of the Seas - Park yourself in front of Sorrento's Pizza place on the Royal Promenade about 20 minutes before the Dreamworks Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street party. You'll have a front row seat for the cacophony of sights, sounds and fun!
