Alaskan cruise with land package

      Nice "quieter" ship experience than we were used to with other cruise lines. Not all the loud music and games . . . . the beautiful Alaskan mountains are your entertainment. At night they offer "Movies under the Stars" by the pool complete with popcorn. Cookies & milk offered each afternoon and yummy. Naturalist board the ship (by ladder as we sail toward the glaciers) and narrate about the Alaskan experience and glaciers. Glacier Bay is unbelievable and you can see seals floating by on icebergs and cute otters. Was 84 degrees in Vancouver and Juneau so some summer clothes needed plus the "layered" clothing. Ketchikan was where we found the best buys! Entertainment was just so-so but we loved the Staff Game shows. KAREN from England was a "hoot".

judychadwell's Tips

Cruise Glacier Bay - Wonderful and best to see from the very front of the ship so you can see all around. Wear many layers and gloves & hat good to have. Not as cold on sides.
Whittier (Anchorage), Alaska - Everyone gets bag tickets and time for departure on train plus assigned seating on train if going to Wilderness Denali lodge. Train by ship.
Skagway, Alaska - Easy walk into town "if" ship is docked close by. Can do $5 round trip on bus & jump on and off.
Juneau, Alaska - One main road that does not go around island and one bridge. Cute and quaint.
Ketchikan, Alaska - Nice little town and prices the best the entire trip. Bought a T-shirt tehere that was double the price in Anchorage.
Grand Princess Grand Princess - At the International cafe on 5 there is a small area with sandwiches, salads, and lots of desserts and you can get them all throughout the day. However, the coffee bar right beside it costs for all coffees. Small musical groups preform there and warm cookies along with milk are offered. Yummy!!!
