    We are excited to take our SECOND Disney Alaska Cruise in May. Our first time around, we bombed on finding the right Salmon bake. Just plain lousy -- I think it was in Liarsville but can't be sure.

    Does anyone have a positive experience with a Salmon Bake they would like to share? I am trying to impress my whole family - consisting of teenagers - so I have a pretty insurmountable task ahead. ;)

    Thanks in advance!

    Oh, and BTW, Disney just added the Sitka port to the itinerary - so maybe that's where all the good food is??

    Sitka is the VERY best port in Alaska. I know because I live there. :goodvibes But for food....no salmon bakes here that are good. There is an excellent one in Juneau that combines with a Taku Glacier Tour. It is truly wonderful. Also, the Thane Ore House in Juneau has excellent salmon and halibut and it is a very "rustic, old-timey" type experience. Have fun on your cruise and I hope you enjoy your stop in Sitka---Disney is doing this as a trial I believe and I hope they keep coming!

    Thank you Princessnicchia! What a gorgeous world you must live in! I can't wait to come explore. Since you know about Sitka, what would you suggest as an activity there? I would love any "insider tips" you might have. ;)

    HI There!
    I've been lucky enough to cruise to Alaska with DCL last August and it was just the best trip ever!
    I also experienced two different salmons bakes: Liarsville and Taku Lodge.
    And if you're with teenager and have to choose one, you shoud go to the Taku Lodge. It's more expensive that the liarsville one, but you will take a seaplane (the teenagers will surely love it), see bears (they're so lovely!), eat the best salmon ever (et drink the best tea ever too!) and take a walk in an incredible scenery.
    I loved Liarsville, it was really pretty and the food was very good, but if I had to choose one of them today, I would go for the Taku Lodge because it was (with the crabfest in Ketchikan) one of my best activities ever.

    I hope this will help!
