Skagway

Day 4- Friday: Friday we arrived in Skagway which is located at the northernmost point of the Inside Passage. Skagway is home to the historic gold rush days and the downtown has been restored to it's roots. When we arrived, a marching band was playing in the street, welcoming the tourists who are the main source of revenue for this town (a little hokey, but still a nice touch). Anxious to use our cell phones for the first time since leaving home on Sunday, we all took a few moments to check in with those at home, mindful of the 4 hour time difference. It was overcast and drizzly, but warm, so we didn't mind the rain. We hadn't booked an excursion here - nothing really enticed us- so we planned to just spend a leisurely day exploring the town.

Meg needed to spend a few hours doing homework. She had not been able to do much of anything online on the ship due to the spotty connections, so she had inquired about free wi-fi to crew members who usually know where to find connection places. The head server, Thomas, recommended that she go to the library, which was a short distance from the ship, and gave her directions. She headed off there and the grandparents and 9 yr old went to ride the White Pass Railway. The rest of us just poked in the shops until it was time to meet Meg. We ventured out of the touristy area and went to an IGA supermarket in search of Tylenol since we were told that Skagway did not have a pharmacy. I spent some time on the phone to Chase, trying to get them to forward my Disney Visa Rewards (over $600.00 worth) to the ship since I had forgotten my Rewards card at home. Amazingly, they were able to do it after I jumped through many hoops and answered some really interesting security questions (I wondered how they got the information they asked questions about!) Thank you Chase Bank!

When Meg was done with her homework we ate lunch in The Skagway Brewing Company, a mix of locals and tourists. The special was a pint of PBR and a shot for $3.00 (we passed) but we enjoyed the best haddock and chips we've ever had. The waitress was very friendly and enjoyed talking about life in Skagway. She explained that she and most others only lived there 6 months of the year. She said that the winter is so dark and cold that very few people stay and those who do pretty much ski and stay inside and read. Most of the year-round residents do not work in the winter because there is very little open, they make their money for the year during "tourist season". There are two restaurant/bars in town (we were in one of them) and they take turns closing down for two months each so that the locals had somewhere to go. The only other places that remain open are the hardware store and the IGA. If residents need medical care, they have to travel by plane to Juneau.

After looking around a little more and taking lots of pictures, we headed back to the ship, but we watched salmon actually j-u-m-p-i-n-g out of a stream before we boarded. The show that evening was to be the movie "Cars 2" which didn't interest us, so we headed up to the Cove Cafe (a favorite spot) to read and relax. We heard that the 9 yr old did not like the train ride (too scary) and that my dad had slept through most of it.

Dinner that night was back in Triton's and afterward we went to the Cadillac Lounge to hear the house piano player's rendition of The Songs of Elton John (piano playing - excellent; singing- not so much). We enjoyed a few drinks in the lounge and then left the girls to enjoy the rest of the evening with their new friends (they had hours to go).

Juneau

Day 5 - Saturday: On Saturday we were in Juneau which is the capital of Alaska and is the largest capital city in the United States. Juneau is accessible only by ship or by air - no roads connect Juneau to the rest of the state. Juneau is located on the inside passage of southern Alaska's panhandle and it's climate is a rainforest. The weather that day was very warm and sunny - it had to be near 80 by afternoon, and most people were in shorts.

By doing some research before the trip, I had learned that we would be able to get to the Mendenhall Glacier in the Tongass National Forest (our desired excursion for the day) pretty cheaply on our own. All the tour vendors (located at the docks) sell bus tickets for $8.00 pp each way out to the glacier. We got off the ship shortly after we docked and were at the glacier by 9:00 am, after a short 30 minute ride with a well-prepared bus driver/tour guide. What an amazing place! Not only were we really, really close to the ice fields, (unbelievable photo ops) we also saw bears fishing for salmon, bald eagles, mountain goats and many other birds. We ran into our DisBoard friends Joe and Andrea and we took pictures for each other with the gorgeous backdrop of the glacier. We walked along the walking paths and enjoyed the spectacular scenery for several hours. We paid $3.00 each (well worth it) to enter the Visitor Center where we watched a very interesting short movie about glacier formation, there were great interactive exhibits, animal exhibits, 250 year old actual glacier ice that you could touch, and more. By 1pm it was getting very crowded so we decided to head out. We took the bus back to town and went immediately up the Mount Roberts Tram ($27.00 pp - buy the tickets at the self-service kiosk to avoid waiting in line). The tram ride is very steep and very quick and it's really nice up top. The views are amazing and there are some gift shops and a rescued bald eagle exhibit. We ate lunch on the outside deck in the restaurant which also had amazing views, decent food and fair prices.

After the tram we visited the shops, and I ended up buying a tanzanite ring that was advertised in the coupon book we had received when leaving Vancouver. I had tried to buy it in the same shop in Skagway but they were out of the "special ring" and offered to sell me "one just like it" for 10 times the price. Hmmm... let me think about that... no thanks! I honestly didn't think i would find it in Juneau either but they had "just one left". I will enjoy it until it tarnishes, I lose it, or it turns my finger green, whichever comes first.

It was very warm and we were dressed for a glacier outing so we decided to head back to the ship. Dinner was in Animator's and it was Pirate night. Very few people were dressed up - unlike the Caribbean cruises- and several of the panels at Animator's didn't work but it was fun anyways. We got the 9yr old a special light-up Pirate glass and clapped real hard and waved our napkins over our heads when the servers had their "parade" at the end of dinner. We went up to the Pirate party on deck (poorly attended). It was a warm but breezy night so we walked around looking at the endless ocean. Even though it was after 10 pm it wasn't quite fully dark yet. We saw what we thought were whales in the distance (who knows if they were, but we'd like to think so). We couldn't even think about eating another bite so we didnt bother going to the Pirate Buffet which was in Beach Blanket
Buffet, not up on deck like on trips out of FL.

We made a trip to Shutters and stacked more photos for consideration later in the cruise, hoped they'd be together next time we visited. We sat in the Promenade Lounge for a bit and listened to the singers but once we were seated we realized that we were tired (from what???) so we headed back to the stateroom. Day 5 was over...how sad. One more port and one more sea day then the magical voyage would come to an end.

Enjoying reading along! We just returned on Tuesday and had a wonderful trip. I'm envious of the weather you had in Juneau! It's funny, I'd heard over and over that no one (or very few) were dressing up for pirate night (and formal/semi formal) but that was not the case on our cruise at all, go figure!

Looking forward to reading more.

Ketchikan and TOO MANY LOBSTERS

On Sunday we arrived in Ketchikan which , according to the DCL Navigator, was first established as a fishing camp in 1883 and then later became known as a mining supply center for gold and copper mining. By the early 1900s was a logging town and that remained for more than 70 years. Like Juneau, Ketchikan is only accessible by boat or plane. The city is currently known as the "Salmon Capitol of the World" and the economy is now based on tourism and fishing. Our twenty-something girls were hoping to meet some lumberjacks, but as it turned out they were about as elusive as the whales on our excursion that day!

The day was overcast and we were not scheduled to arrive until noon, so we decided to have a leisurely breakfast in Tritons. Shortly after we arrived our new Dis Friends, Karla and her Mom Nancy arrived so we enjoyed their company, along with Karla's husband Dan, while we ate and chatted.

In preparing for this trip I had purchased the "Frommers Guide to Alaska by Cruise Ship" and several other travel books. They all recommended an excursion to the Misty Fjords National Monument in the Tongass National Forest, so we had decided to book this through DCL ($179.00 pp). We had hoped to do the Disney Lumberjack show, but the Misty Fjords excursion was a 5+ hour long adventure so we couldn't do both. Based on the guide books we decided to go with the Misty Fjords.

The excursion was on a large catamaran with an enclosed upper deck (where we sat) and plenty of room to walk around outside and enjoy the sights. The promotional literature for the trip advertised that we would see salmon, black-tailed deer, brown and black bears, wolves, minks, bald eagles, martens, mountain goats, river otters and humpback whales as well as other wildlife. The Misty Fjords are beautiful mountains that rise out of the sea and they are located in a unique ecosystem that supports this wildlife. The receeding glaciers gave way to brush, forest, waterfalls and salt marshes. We were very excited!

We left the dock shortly after 12:30 pm and began our adventure. There were naturalists on board who gave intermittent narrations about the areas we were in. We expected to be directed to look here or there for whales or eagles or.... anything.... but that really didnt happen. Overall the excursion fell way short of our expectations. While it is certainly not the tour operator's fault that we did not see whales, we actually only saw one bald eagle and a group of seals on the entire trip. The scenary was beautiful, but not all that different from what we had been seeing since we left Vancouver 6 days earlier. Most people on the trip grew restless and many napped and the children really got whiny and bored. They served some light snacks along the way, which made it nice and had some coloring sheets downstairs for the children, but the lack of wildlife made an already long excursion seem much longer. To pass the time we chatted with the folks seated around us. Pretty much everyone felt that while it wasnt a bad excursion, it really wasnt worth $179.00 for a boat ride and it really wasnt good, either.

We got back at nearly 6 pm and all aboard was at 7:30 pm. We felt a little cheated - we hadnt seen the town at all- so we went to a couple close-by shops and bought a few more things to take home. We boarded the ship near the end of the time ashore and had to get ready for dinner. If we had been on a spectacular tour that afternoon we might not have felt that we missed anything in not seeing the town, but in reality we saw pretty much none of Ketchikan and pretty much no wildlife either.

Dinner was semi-formal so we put on our fanciest clothes and went to the least fancy restaurant - Parrot Cay. The previous evening our servers had asked who would be ordering the baked lobster tails (presumably to get a count). Being from New England we often have fresh Maine lobster so we were very much looking forward to this dinner. Five of us answered that we would like lobster, and my father jokingly said that he would like 5 lobster tails. Well....lesson learned... do not tease your servers. Not only did Englebert bring him 5 lobster tails- he brought him 5 complete dinners! My father was embarrassed and upset -he hates to waste food and he felt awful that they had actually thought he wanted 5 dinners. He begged us to help him eat them so it wouldnt be wasted, but before we could even start in on one, Englebert arrived with second meals for all of us who had ordered the lobster. For five people we now had 13 full dinners. The table was so full of dishes we barley had room to put a fork down between bites. Of course the girls were plenty giggly about Grandpa's 5 dinners but he didnt find it funny at all. And, to make matters worse, the lobster tails were dry and tough and...well not really good at all. He did the best he could, but in the end just about all of the rice and green beans and two untouched lobster tails remained. My father sort of slunk out of the dining room and we wondered if he'd ever return!

After dinner went to the Adult Comedy show in WaveBands (Daren Streblow) which was ok and then headed back to do a little packing. The tip envelopes were there, glaring at us from their places on our beds. I hate tip envelopes... they reinforce the fact that the trip is nearly over. We counted our cash and remarked how yes! we still had plenty of cash, but then remembered that was becuase we had been constantly using our credit cards... and got the envelopes ready. We remembered to set the clock forward an hour (we have had a little trouble with this on past cruises) and called it a night around midnight. At some point the girls came back, but I only truly know this because they were in their beds in the morning when I got up.

Next - The last day of this trip - and will this be our last DCL experience?

Last day and last DCL cruise?

Monday was a funny day- we all seemed a little "off". Was it the changing of the time zones finally catching up with us or the "last day blues"? The girls slept in until who-knows-how-late, Jody and I had breakfast in Parrot Cay and then went to the theatre to catch the final Alaskan Naturalist presentation on bears and to watch the new "Winnie The Pooh" movie. All that sitting made me a little tired, and I think (?) I may have nodded off for a moment or two (sorry, Pooh). The movie was cute, but I'm glad I didnt pay to see it - it was only about an hour long and not so different from the Pooh I remembered.

After that we went to Wavebands to hear the "Innovations: Theme Parks and Resorts" presentation. We were a few minutes early and chose our seats. Shortly after we arrived in walked the FAMILY FROM THE "ART OF THE THEME" TOUR..... ugh! The thought of fighting to hear the presentation over those children again was more than we wanted to put up with, so we quickly changed seats.... as far away as we could get from them. However, that really wasnt necessary because the waitress told the parents that the children couldn't stay. The mom argued (loudly) "that kids were allowed on Beat Street until 9pm". The waitress stood her ground, however, and after much sighing and huffing and puffing, it was decided that the Dad and kids would leave and only the Mom would stay (no Grandma-in-the-wheelchair this time). We were really glad that the waitress spoke up because the presenter was the same as from the tour, Sheena, and she probably would not have said anything. The presentation was interesting, talked about the Top 10 Innovations that Disney used to make their parks more than just an amusement park.

After this we got some snacks from Deck 9 and headed up to the Cove Cafe to sit, read and watch the beautiful scenery go by until it was time to go to tea at Palo for Jody's birthday. As the afternoon wore on we frequently went outside to see whales and dolphins in the distance. I went to the future cruise desk and booked a "dummy cruise" for a $99 deposit - just as a place marker until the 2013 schedules come out, but even as I did it, I wondered - have we "outgrown" Disney? The shows/activites seemed a little same old/same old on this trip. We no longer need to pay the premium for the excellent kid's activities - maybe it's time to look more seriously at other lines?

At 3pm we all met at Palo for our "ladies tea" to celebrate Jody's birthday. We had picked up gifts along the way to surprise her- a fleece vest in Vancouver, an Alaskan calendar and key chain, coffee and an insulated mug. The setting was perfect, the treats spectacular and the company the best. Happy Birthday at sea - how wonderful!

The show that evening was "Disney Dreams" which we always enjoy so we went to see it. After that we stopped into the shops and I bought a few more "needed" items including DCL t-shirts for my Dad and the 9 yr old (matching). The captain was signing purchases with a Sharpie so we had him sign the shirts - fun memory.

Dinner that night was in Tritons (back where we first began). No one seemed too hungry - I think we were all full from all the eating all week - (even if Alex at Palo's had complained that we didn't eat enough when we went to brunch!) Meg had been waiting all week for the "Baked Alaska" but she barely took a few bites. We thanked our servers for their hard work all week and gave them the tip envelopes. We knew we would need to get off the ship very early the next morning to make our 11:30 flight, so breakfast was not going to happen. After dinner we went to watch the "Til We Meet Again excitement in the lobby, we enjoyed watching all the children enjoying the characters.

Time for the final packing and checking drawers and closets - we didn't have to put our luggage out because we had to take it off ourselves at 7:30 am in the first wave of disembarkers. Last night in our little home-away-from home. Long day of traveling tomorrow ...

Will we sail on DCL again?

So - did we enjoy this cruise? We loved it. We loved the scenery and it seemed more relaxing than Caribbean cruises, in spite of the 3 ports in three days. So, then, you may be asking, why the "is it time to look at other lines"? I guess it's just that the "we're at home on our ship" feeling isn't quite good enough anymore. We love the shows (well... maybe not "Toy Story") but we have seen them all over and over, so the excitement is no longer there. We love the activities, but again, we've gone to pretty much everything...many times. The theme nights are fun, but other lines have them, too. The rotational dining is unique to DCL and I think the crew is a bit more friendly, but we no longer need the kids programming, and we have to be honest, we are paying a big premium to cruise on DCL for something we do not need. We like the bring-your-alcohol-onboard policy, but we're not big drinkers, so it's not a real big thing for us. The food is good on DCL but it's good on other lines, too. Palo is wonderful but... we've been there a lot, and other lines have specialty restaurants also.

This cruise seemed to be same old/same old- we were not "dying" to go to anything because we have seen it and done it before. With so many repeat cruisers, you would think that DCL would change up the evening/adult entertainment so that each cruise would be a little different. I did book a dummy cruise onboard , and will probably book something for real when the 2013 itineraries are published, but only if we can go somewhere new and exciting (like Alaska was this year) because what's happening on the ship is old and familiar.

We have great memories of wonderful family vacations on DCL, and do not regret one experience or one cent spent on our 6 DCL cruises. Our home is filled with pictures of blissful days on CC and delightful interactions with characters ("back in the day") but perhaps it is worth exploring other lines. We've sailed on RC and (gasp!) Carnival and always been very pleased with our vacations. When it 's a matter of thousands of dollars difference, it's worth a look. Maybe we'll be back on a DCL cruise in the coming years, maybe not , but the ones we've taken have been spectacular, and what more can you ask?

I thoroughly enjoyed your trip report--loved your surprise of family showing up on the ship and you had no idea at all.

We sail to Alaska in 2014, and I am wondering if you did book another DCL trip or not. This report is so far in the past that you may never see this message, but you never know.
