  1. We have a rental car booked from the Avis right by the pier. Its $100 for the day. This was the cheapest option for our family of four. It looks like about a 15-20 minute walk from the pier to Avis. Be careful, there are two Avis locations, one by the airport and a seasonal one by the pier. This is the one by the pier. https://www.avis.com/en/locations/us/ak/juneau/j2d
  2. Did you rent through DIY Jeep Tours or just the local rental place i.e Avis? Thanks in advance!
  3. It's funny, i had that same thought when I asked CC, maybe we should just bite the bullet.... and when I asked my son (he's 10) about it he said he did NOT want to go in a helicopter. Not sure where the fear came from because we live in the land of roller coasters and those are his favorite thing. Anything thrill related, he loves. I decided as of right now, to rent a car in the morning and do Mendenhall glacier, explore as time allows, then at 3pm we have a dog sledding excursion, THEN if we have time allow head up on the tramway before we have to be back on the ship by 8:30. Hopefully, I made the right choices, I'm already wondering i did. Because there is just sooooooo much to chose from.
  4. Thank you so much. Great ideas and tips! :-)
  5. Perfect, thank you! You all are the best and super helpful. Thank you.
  6. Oh thank you! Feeling better and better and glad I picked that early flight home! I've heard it's a very nice and traveler friendly airport, but I always like to extra precaution if needed.
  7. Thank you both! I feel better now about my early flight. When I booked it I just focused on the arrival time to Florida and not all of the steps in the morning.
  8. Thank you! Added to the list. 🙂
  9. Hi everyone! Our flight home to Florida is at 6:15am on a Monday out of YVR. Our hotel has a free shuttle that starts at 3:30am; however, according to YVR's website it says we should arrive 3 hours early. That would be before the shuttle even starts running. If we wait for shuttle and get to YVR around 2.5 hours early, will that be plenty of time to get through bag drop, security, and US pre screening? We will have a 10 and 12 year old with us too. Thanks in advance!
  10. Thank you! I was thinking about walking around after we did an 'excursion'.
  11. Thank you, I will look into it. I would like to fill the day with as much as possible. We do like hiking, do you recall how intensive the hike up was?
  12. Thank you for the information. We are doing the DIY Jeep in Skagway so I wondered if renting a car in Juneau would be nice as well. I'll take a look into it. I did try looking through old reports, but found it hard pertaining to kids and in Juneau.
  13. I think part of my problem is we want to do a little bit of everything and can't narrow it down. Thanks!
  14. Hi everyone! What is the best shore excursion to do with kids in Juneau? They will be 10 and 12 when we go. I would like to see Mendenhall Glacier, but really do not know what else to see. This seems to be the toughest port to plan so far. We are moderate in activity, like animals and scenery, enjoy touristy stuff. But nothing is really jumping out at me (within our price range, no flightseeing and or helicopters). Personal experience welcome! Any other suggestions? You all are the best! :-)
  15. Surprisingly this is valid on some Alaska sailings this time and I just saved another $580 on our 7/2020 cruise. Even the phone rep was impressed! Thank you as always for the heads up.
