  1. This is so so sad. Need to hug my family more. Class act by princess. I have not been to misty fjords but have been to anan a couple of times and traitors cove. If there wasn't bad weather, I am having a hard time envisioning a collision. It was clear, open skys on my flights.
  2. Check island wings or the other vendors in ketchikan. They can tell you when its prime time for traitors cove. I went mid September and saw good activity but its unusual that late in the year.
  3. Before you post to the Alaska forum, it would be good to list your itinerary and interests.
  4. It may be a glitch in the system. It should be the same for 1 or 2 people, but less one person's taxes and port fee when booking for one person. It's been awhile, but I have called and the customer service rep fixed the pricing on the solo booking.
  5. You have to look by ship. It's at AS dock. That's where we are at. It's .2 miles to their office based on what I could determine but I don't have anyone with a mobility issue. Not far though. We were directed to meet at the office. If they don't say to meet somewhere closer, can your friend use a rollator to assist? My sister doesn't use at home but uses it when traveling to rest (it's a walker with a bench). http://claalaska.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Juneau-–-JNU-2019.pdf
  6. waterproof your walking shoes and you should be fine. I take sandals in case I need extra pair until shoes are dry.
  7. This will be my first time, but they were very helpful via email. Make sure you included your ship name in the reservation. Do you know where you dock?
  8. Cruisetours are great for people who want to leave the planning to others but planning is half the fun. Age isn't your issue on cruise tour but the level of activity and inflexibility. Do you want to hike? Pick your own itinerary? Stop on the side of the road to see wildlife? Then DIY. If you find a cruisetour that you like, then great but there are usually a lot of compromises. Not enough time in Denali, going to places that dont have high interest to you, etc. An Alaska DIY is easy. Few roads and many trip reports on this forum. Alaska is great but make sure you are seeing the Alaska that you want to see!
  9. I am going on the 6am shuttle in July. The wording on the confirm is confusing. I think they used language that would cover shuttles and tours. I am just going to show up a little before 6am. It was confusing if I would get the NPS fee back or not- I am doing 2 shuttles. I plan on asking when I get there.
  10. The elegant tea is nice- I liked the scones. Even if not Elite, a traveling companion can go into the lounge and get free drinks.
  11. To get the companion fare benefit, does the companion need to be on the same flight?
  12. Royal is getting permits for Glacier Bay in 2020. It will be interesting if the National Park Services take permits away from Carnival, Princess and HAL for this.
  13. Wow. I don't see why these lines were granted access to Glacier Bay for the next 10 years. I don't see the economic impact if the permits to Glacier Bay are given to other lines. Other cruise lines will take them. To Florida, yes. Alaska, no.
  14. They probably are referencing the fog potential on taking the train first- I have taken the train first a couple of times and no fog. Just make sure you sit on the side of train/bus that people recommend so that you can especially see things on the train. I get up and stand outside so it doesn't matter so much to me.
  15. I believe the longer one goes to emerald lake. It depends how much energy and mobility your mom has. I have taken the longer excursion and it was quite good. The train ride is scenic and you can get up and walk around quite easily. The van stops quite a bit for photo stops. She could always stay in the van if she wanted. You might want to email chilkoot to see how often they stop. You can Google the stops or read trip reports to see if it is worth it. Another option is to rent a car and drive to Yukon on your own. You miss the train ride though.
