Deb and anyone else that's already done check in for their Alaska Cruise:

Do you have to pick a port arrival time like we do at Port Canaveral?

We are on the 8/13/12 cruise and we check in on May 15 but wanted to know what to expect.

Thanks!

Stephanie

Stephanie - yes, you have to choose a time slot. But so far nobody has reported any efforts at enforcement at ports other than Port Canaveral, so I doubt they will enforce arrival times in Seattle.

Do you actually get to walk on the Glaciers on any of the DCL Excursions? We are looking at the whale watching with a trip to the glaciers.

Question Chilkoot Horseback Adventure

Has anyone done the horseback riding adventure in Skagway? My DD (12) and I have that booked during our 5/21 cruise.

I would love to know the answer to this too. Two people in our party have booked this during our June 4th cruise.

Still hoping to hear from someone who has done the helicopter/dog sledding excursion. Does anyone know the difference between doing it in Juneau and in Skagway?

We did this in Juneau last year and had a blast. We all absolutely loved it and thought it was the best excursion we've ever done. Everyone that was in our group thought it was well worth it and would have been sad had we missed it. We even had one member of our group that was deathly afraid of heights and absolutely loved the helicopter ride and the sledding.

I believe there are a couple of reviews of this excursion buried somewhere in this thread.

Yes! We did the Glacier Discovery tour in Skagway and we took a helicopter to the glacier, walked around for over an hour then flew back. We were the last tour so it was great to be the only ones on the glacier and no one pushing us to be done.

Heli/dog sledding - Norris or Mendenhall Glacier?

Hi i'll be sailing on 4 june. Disney has 2 excursions on heli tour/dog sledding, to Norris & Mendenhall glacier, operated by different companies I believe. I'm wondering if there is much difference between them. I've read reveiws on dog sledding but many don't state which glacier they were on.

To those who've gone on these tours, Can you share your experience/views eg on the tour co, time on flight sightseeing, dog mushing etc? Thanks any info is appreciated.

And thanks also to the folks who bumped up this thread, it's been invaluable!

Whale Watching and Orca point Lodge

I'd love to know this, too. I'm on August 6th and trying to figure out which one to do.

Helicopter/Dog Sledding in Juneau-What to wear???

Hi! I am on the 5/28 Alaska cruise and have signed up for the helicopter ride/dog sledding on Mendenhall Glacier. What tpe of attire should I/do I need to wear (in terms of shoes, pants, outerwear, long underwear, etc).

I am also ziplining in Ketchikan and have sort of the same question. I have never been ziplining and am not sure if there are requirments for clothing...
Thanks!!
