July 29- August 5th, 2013 sailing

I wanted to post about our excursions. Prior to sailing we spent 3 days in Vancouver.

1st day we did Capilano Suspension bridge and Grouse mountain. Both were wonderful. We caught the lumber jack show at Grouse mountain as it was included in our admission and skipped the one in Alaska. We spoke to people who did the one in Alaska and it seemed simiar to the one we did. My tip is take the first bus out in the am to Capilano. Then go to their guest services to get exact change for bus fare to Grouse mountain. Currently 2.75 per person. Bus stop is just a few feet up the road from Capilano. Make sure you take sunscreen for Grouse mountain. If you will be up there at dusk, take bug spray. Last free bus back to Canada place is 5:30. Don't wait til the end, it is first come first serve. The 5:00 bus was filled and we had to wait for the last one.

2n day- Stanley park- this is a wonderful park. It has a minature train, aquarium, 3 beaches, and a large swimming pool. There is additonal fees for these things. I don't think that they charged for the beach. We spent the entire day at the park. There is also food places within the park and a lovely sea wall to walk around. You can also rent bikes and ride around the park. I think you rent them elsewhere.

3rd day- We walked around the city of Vancouver and also went to the Fly over Canada attraction. That was really good.

If you are staying at the Pan Pacific or Waterfront Fairmont there is a food court underneath. Highly recommed eating breakfast at the Pita Express. He uses fresh eggs and no microwave. You get omlet, hashbrown, toast, fruit and juice. Cost for 2 people was 22.98 this included tax. Cost for breakfast at the Pan is 30.00 per person.

Alaska

Skagway- We did the best of Skagway tour- The white pass train was great. If you start at the top and go down the summit sit on the right side of the train. If you are going up the summit on the train, sit on the left side. There was 32 people on our bus. We were assigned 2 train cars. There was only 12 people on our car. Most everyone went to the second car. So you might want to hang back and see where everyone goes before jumping on one. I was able to move from side to side and go out on the platforms without difficulty. There are 2 platforms one at the front and one at the end of the car. Most everyone went on the front one. Complmentary water in the back of the train car. After the train we were taken to Liarsville. We were served lunch, which was okay. The show was hokey, we found 5 flecks of gold. I do mean flecks. Lots of bugs there including flies. Next we went to the Red Onion salon. We were offered complimentary beer, wine, lemonade and water. It is a very small museum. It was okay. The only part of this excursion that I recommend is the White Pass train.

Juneau- Enchanted Taku lodge- I give this excursion 10 stars. We took a floatplane to the lodge. Flight was cool. You have time to walk around the grounds before and after the meal. We saw bears. The food was great. They provided a short hike with a guide after lunch. They also provided bug spray if you wanted it. It was buggy there, but we didn't use it. I missed the story about the lodge. There were 2 bears licking the salmon oil off of the sand, i went to watch them. My husband said the story was very good.

Forgot to mention that before this tour we did the Mount Robert tram on our own. Just aheads up the tickets cost 2.00 more at the place than on the ship. I didn't buy them on the ship because I didn't know what we were going to do. I didn't feel like taking the bus back to the ship to buy tickets. Disney did provide a complimentary bus from the dock to the town and back to the ship.

Ketichan- We walked around the city ourselves. We saw creek street and the fish trying to swim up stream. Noted it would be a very easy walk from the ship to the lumberjack show. Our excursion this day was with a private company called Island wings of Ketichan. We took a float plane to Misty Fjords. There was a public dock there that we were able to get out and spend about 15 minutes on it before other planes arrived. This trip was good unfortunately after our Taku lodge experience, it just didn't blow me away. The company is very good and easy to work with. I would fly with them again. However, I would want to go on there bear trip instead of the Misty Fjords.


Just an observation- I think the characters stuck to deck 4 during Tracy Arms. We did not see any on deck 10. Also people were reserving viewing spots early. We were able to get a spot along the rail, but we did not have a great back drop for pictures. There was this pole or part of the ship in it. Just keep that in mind if you were hoping for good pictures. On our trip the left side of the ship saw the glacier first, then the ship was turned and the right side saw the glacier next.

I hope that you find this information helpful. Let me know if you have any questions.

Sure does. Thanks for the info!

August 12-19th sailing

This thread was a huge help to me so I wanted to share our experiences.

Skagway: we did the Train ride up/bus ride down with the 15 minute dogcart ride. Booked through Chilikoot and saved some money. The train ride was amazing! I spent most of the ride out on the platform and the views were incredible!! Only thing is you cannot hear the narration out there so we had to rely on someone to come out and tell us what was coming up. The food for lunch was yummy and our guide for the bus tour down was very informative. He was more than willing to take family pictures for us. He also met us at the dogcart ride to take a group picture. The dogcart ride was very dusty but fun. We simply couldn't afford to ride the dogcart on a glacier so this was a nice alternative

Juneau: We had the the Taku lodge via flotplane booked independently to save some money and they called as we were getting off the ship to say it was cancelled due to the fog. . DH and DD17 were scheduled to take a helicopter and hike on a glacier thru Disney a little later in the day and they loaded up, drove out to the airfield, got all decked out in their garb..........and then their excursion was cancelled as well. I did think that Juneau was the prettiest port. We did some shopping instead. If we had known the helicopter was going to be cancelled we would have all gone out to Mendehall glacier, but my younger DD wanted to swim so I took her back to the ship. We did run into a couple who took the bus out there and they saw bears....said it was the best $16 they spent on the cruise!

Ketchikan: Originally we were going to just wander around on our own, but since our Juneau excursions were cancelled we managed to book the Bear Creek Ziplining excursion last minute. Tons of fun!!! Our guides were great, and I felt like it was very safe. Only time I let out a squeal was when were had to rappel down at the end.

On our Tracy Arm day the captain was unable to turn the ship around due to all the sea lions, so he had to back out. Because of that the front of the ship was PACKED with all the people squeezing their way in to get a picture of the sea lions......I just wanted the glacier picture! Crazy. That the the only bad part of the day. We hung out on deck 10 and saw Chip and Dale and Koda. Although we followed the chipmunks for a few minutes we weren't able to get a picture with them. Later we saw Goofy on the way to dinner out on deck 4 in his flight suit and although he didn't have a photographer with him I was able to get a great shot of him and DD.

August 5 - 12 Sailing - some different thoughts

Hi all, I got a lot of our excursion plans from this board, and so much of our experience is covered in earlier threads - thanks for the help - but I wanted to add a few thoughts:

Skagway - Yukon Experience booked directly through Chilkoot Charters- Overall 7.5 - Finding Chilkoot and transferring to the train was as easy as could be. The train ride up was a "9.5". The views were terrific and the guide narration was very good. We didn't like that they walked through looking for tips toward the end. During the transfer to the Chilkoot bus (about 20 of us) at Frasier, I looked out and said to my wife, "Hey, that looks like Bill O'Reilly over there", two buses over. She dismissed it, but when our driver got back on, he said "did everyone see Bill O'Reilly over there"?

The bus ride up to the Yukon was very nice, probably a little boring for kids. We stopped at Caribou Crossing, and found it to be a tourist trap, basically. The chicken meal was good. But other than that, there was a gift shop, museum of taxidermy, ice cream shop, "petting zoo" with goats, pigs, etc. and the sled dogs.

This is where we had some problems. There was no one watching the 10 day old puppies being held by children. A younger dog wandered into the mom's pen, and got beat up pretty bad by the mom, yelping for some time. It was clear in the aftermath that the employees didn't know what they were supposed to be doing. The other younger dogs that were not tied down were running around the pen. I tried to pet one young dog, and he "attacked" my gift shop bag (there was no food in it). I had to pull it out of his mouth. Overall, the treatment and oversight of the dogs was questionable. My wife does rescue volunteer work, and she was appalled. I downplayed it as how sled dogs are cared for up North, but I have to agree that Caribou Crossing could have done better. PS - the goats up on the side of the mountain are fake.

Our bus driver, an Irish gentleman, told great stories and was very knowledgeable. The stories were just that though, stories. Hard to believe that his same best friend from Arizona comes in on a cruise "the following week to visit". But his stories were very interesting and well told and he earned his post-tour tip.

Juneau - Taku Glacier Lodge - Overall - 10 We booked direct, and we would do this one again in a heartbeat. Everything was terrific, and really very enjoyable. My wife was very hesitant about small plane flying, and she really enjoyed the flight and the time at the lodge. We happened to sit with the mother of the lodge owner, and so we got a little more history on the lodge and the family who owns and runs the place. All in all, the best excursion of the trip, and the weather was perfect.

We spent the rest of our time in Juneau shopping and having a drink at the Red Dog. A very nice little city. We had some time at the end and did decide to walk back to the ship, based on the signs that pointed along the water back to the other piers. Mistake - half way back, the walkway was gated, and we had to swing way out back to the road. Turned out to be a long walk, and we should have taken the shuttle as we did on the way into town.

Ketchikan We did the Adventure Carts here, through Disney. Overall Rating - 6. It was fun, and the young guides were nice and knowledgeable. But it was expensive ($209 per person). It didn't feel like something we needed to go to Alaska to do. Could have done it at home. Very dusty and dirty, so if you are doing other things after, save time to go back to the ship to clean up, or bring a change of clothes with you.

After the carts, we walked around Ketchikan. Our waiter recommended the Fish and Chips at Alaska Fish House (right near the ship next to the lumberjack show) and he was right - best we've ever had, and the Salmon Chowder was excellent too. Saw Creek Street and the fish ladder, with tons of Salmon, then went to meet our guide for Island Wings Misty Fjords Flight Plane Adventure. We booked this directly (5-7 with a 7:30 ship departure, but they assured us they've never missed a ship). Overall - 9. Michelle, the pilot was terrific, and the flight was great. Just a little bit of a let down after the Taku Lodge flight the day before. The flight was longer though, and Michelle went out of her way to find mountain goats and show us everything. We spent about 20 minutes on shore at remote Manzoni Lake.

Overall, a great cruise this week. The weather was nearly perfect, including our Tracy Arm day. Doug, the naturalist, was giddy about how good the weather was and how close we were able to get to the glacier. Very much looking forward to another Alaska cruise in a couple of years. The excursions were expensive, but much different than a Caribbean cruise, and well worth it.

August 12 - 19

Our cruise was awesome. We had such a good time that we're already planning our next cruise although it probably won't be until 2015. We ended up getting an extra excursion that we didn't have to pay for. I think it was the evening that we were sailing away from Juneau. Right at dusk, there was about 13 whales off the side of the boat and we were able to watch them surfacing and blowing water out their blow holes and then diving back under. It was incredibly beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing. And we didn't even have to book a whale watching excursion to see this.

Skagway We booked the Bennett Scenic Journey through Chillkoot Charters. It was fantastic. The weather was perfect and the guide kept telling us how lucky we were and that normally the weather wasn't this good. The train trip up was full of unbelieveably beautiful scenery and they did a great job of narrating all the important details along the way. We stopped in Bennett for lunch which consisted of stew, coleslaw, bread, and pie plus coffee, tea, and water. The stew and the bread was delicious. The coleslaw was just so-so. Pie was also delicious. Bennett is so pretty. Lake Bennett is the most unusual color of milky aqua green. Even though its a ghost town, there's still one resident there. Edna. She runs a little store around the back of the old church and sells her handmade goods. Got back on the train and continued on to Carcross and met our guide, Tim, up there for the bus ride back down to Skagway. Tim was born and bred Alaskan and did a great job of telling us all about the different stops and threw in his own stories about the different areas.

Once we got back to Skagway we did a little shopping in town and then walked back to the ship. Not sure if it's always this way or not but it was so incredibly windy when we were walking back to the ship. It was almost as if they were trying to push us back to town to do more shopping.

Juneau We had booked the Pilots Choice Helicopter tour and glacier landing for the morning. It was cancelled due to the weather. That didn't deter us though. We took the shuttle into town and was able to book the ERA Glacier adventure by Helicopter for 1:40pm. It was the highlight of our trip. Unbelievable. Everyone at ERA was just wonderful. We were picked up at the dock and driven to ERA's facility just outside of town. There we were given life vests and boots and loaded into our helicopter. Our pilot Reiner (sorry if I misspelled your name) was great and very knowledgeable about the area. We took a ride over the Juneau Icefield and then landed on Taku Glacier. That was one of the most incredible things I've ever done. The glacier is incredibly beautiful and gives you the feeling of the being the only people on earth. You're surrounded by unreal landscape. The ice reminded me of being on the moon. The crevasses were spectacular and the blue ice and blue pools of water were beyond belief. Ironically, one of the great things about our trip was when it came time to take off again, the helicopter had a mechanical problem. Reiner called the base and they dispatched another helicopter to pick us up and we ended up getting another 15 minutes on that spectacular glacier. We all agreed that the helicopter issue was actually a great thing and so unique. Just another story about to tell about our glacier landing. Our pictures came out great and really do it justice. All in all, this was the absolute highlight of our trip and the excursion of a lifetime. ERA was great and next time we're in town we're going back to them again. We just hope we can request the Glacier Adventure by Helicopter with Helicopter Mechanical Issue.

Once we got back to town we took the Mt. Robert Tramway up to the top and looked around. It was well worth the trip. We got some incredible views and got to see a bear. Also saw a bald eagle up there who was unfortunately shot through the beak and as a result crashed and shattered it's wing. It can never be released back into the wild but they take good care of her up there. Be warned, she doesn't like flash photography so be sure to turn off your flash on your camera before you take a picture of her.

Ketchikan It rained and rained and rained some more and just when we thought we couldn't take it any more...it rained again. Luckily, Disney was giving out free ponchos as you left the ship. Our floatplane tour with Island Wings was cancelled due to weather but once again, we weren't going to let that deter us. We walked over to the Ketchikan Visitors Bureau and were able to book a floatplane tour with Misty Fjords Air. The flight was great and the scenery was incredible. We landed on a dock in a remote area and were able to get out of the plane for about 10 minutes and walk around. We'd do it again in a heartbeat and we all loved the trip but it wasn't enough to outshine our glacier adventure in Juneau.

When we got back to Ketchikan we did some shopping...in the rain. I picked up my Ulu knives. I was actually a little disappointed in some of the shops in all 3 ports. They were actually selling Ulu knives that were made in China. I refused to buy those and made sure the knife sets I bought were actually made in Alaska. So if that's important to you, be sure to check and make sure it says "Made in Alaska".

So other than Skagway, our excursions were not exactly as planned but in retrospect, we wouldn't have had it any other way. It all worked out so well in the end. Alaska is a spectacular place and has to be seen to be believed. I honestly don't think you can go wrong with any excursion you take in this awesome, wonderful, beautiful land. To all who have a cruise coming up - Relax and enjoy!

Just got back today and also wanted to share our experience 'to pay it forward' for all the great advice.

In Juneau we went on the Alpine Glacier and Zipline Adventure through Disney. We had about 45 minutes at the park to look at the glacier, walk to the falls, or look for bears down at the stream. It was a bit rushed and we couldn't do all three but still very enjoyable. The Zipline was the main attraction for us though. The staff were excellent and a lot of fun. We thoroughly enjoyed this adventure.

In Ketchikan we went to the Mountain Point Snorkeling Adventure through Disney. Yes, we snorkeled in the waters of Alaska! The staff were all super and just as promised, they made it informative, showed us lots of great wildlife and kept us warm!! We would HIGHLY recommend this excursion!!

Question..I

I was randomly reading through several of the posts and wanted to know about appropriate age of children. We have a 6 and 3 year old so is there enough for the 3 year old to enjoy himself? This is a Make-A-wish trip for him and we want him to have a blast.

Thanks!

Thanks!
We did the trolley tour/White Pass railroad in Skagway and a whale watching trip with Orca Enterprises in Juneau with a 4 1/2 year old (along with our 9, 12, & 15 yo's) and she loved it all. The trolley ride was short and in a retrofitted trolley car. We took a small bus for about an hour up the mountain, stopping several time for pictures. She loved the novelty of the bus and the scenery kept her occupied as well. She also loved the train. It wasn't crowded on our car so she was able to move around quite a bit without disturbing anyone else. I took her out on the platform several times which she loved. I did hold on to her pretty tightly though! In Juneau, it was about a 20 minute bus ride to the harbour. The boat trip was about 3 hours but she loved it all! Again, there was room to move around and she loved being out on the back of the boat searching for whales (we saw a ton!). They served hot chocolate, Capri Suns, cheese and crackers on the way back. (Smoked salmon too, but she didn't like that) I don't think she had seen a juice pouch in a week so I think the Capri Suns were the biggest hit! We then took the Orca bus to the Mendenhall glacier where she was able to run around some before the 20 minute ride back to Juneau. We also did a bus tour in Ketchikan that my mom booked that day at the visitors' center. We all felt that was somewhat of a bust as the clerk made a big deal about the possibility of seeing bears (he quoted a 80-90% chance) but the driver admitted the chances were pretty slim since it was high tide. If we had known that, we would have most likely skipped the tour. My mom really wanted to do it more than the kids did. We did see tons of salmon, a few eagles, and the Saxman totem poles. But the tour itself wasn't all that great and our 4yo fell asleep half way through. After the tour we walked through Creek Street and up to the salmon ladder, which all the kids thought was really cool. We were on the last cruise of the season and the salmon were in full run so it might not be as interesting earlier in the summer.

I did notice that many of the excursions/tours weren't available to the under 5 set so that did impact our choices. Overall, I was happy with our choices and all the kids agreed that it was a fabulous trip! I'm sure you will all have a blast no matter what you end up doing!!!

Thanks for the post Ellester.

I am noticing the under 5 age on a lot of things my older kids want to do. My DD will be 4.5 when we go next year.

I am sure your dd will have fun no matter what you end up doing. I am working on my trip report which will detail all we did but some highlights for her were the Princess Tea which we did on Tracy Arm day and the Princess gathering on the last sea day. Every day she would announce at some part of the day "This is the BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!". It was SO darn cute! I won't lie, there were a few tears here and there. But over all, it was a wonderful vacation for all our kids from 4 1/2 up to 15!

How old are your older kids? We contemplated splitting up on excursions but then decided we just didn't want to do that on a family vacation. There really was so much for all ages. A trip of a lifetime!

Subscribing because we are considering this trip for next August. Our boys will be 6.5 and 4. I know that Disney offers things for all ages and I have been loving this thread because I want to know more!

I enthusiastically second this! The sea life we saw was amazing and, right when we arrived at the "beach" there were two bald eagles on a rock just off shore. And we had a close encounter with the dreaded Lions Mane jellyfish, which resulted in a fun story to share.
