No, they must be booked independently. Carnival uses mostly Allen Marine - they are larger boats.

They also may use Gastineau Guiding Company for some Photo Safari whale watching trips.

I think the Millennium has a better itinerary.

I personally don't like the RT out of Seattle trips - I feel cheated time wise.

I would put Mendenhall at the bottom of your priorities. Tracy Arm will blow Mendenhall away. They are different but if there are other things to do, I would do them.

You can do the glacier cruises the day of the cruise. The ship doesn't leave until late. You can take the RR in and do the glacier cruise the day of the cruise. It is a different experience with the...

I am the opposite - I would do Mendenhall first and then do the dog sledding at 5:30.

Those 1 pm arrivals in Juneau are really troublesome as far as planning things. Do you know if you are...

Fishing excursions out of Ketchikan will run but I don't think they are that successful. Salmon running and bear excursions are also non-existent at this time. Though - this doesn't mean that you...

There should be no customs in Seward. You will do Customs and Immigration when you leave Vancouver at the pier. You are in the US until you depart to go back to Canada.

I would probably recommend this also. Price wise, it is a deal. It sounds like your daughter could probably handle this as little walking is involved.

I was surprised to read the other comments as I went end of May once and had no problems getting in there. Didn't give it a second thought that the area would not be accessible.

There is a later train ride through Alaska RR (not through RCCL). While it is expensive, it was like an excursion for me as it is a beautiful ride (though a bus ride would see the scenery also). I...

The White Pass train in Skagway has an accessible car (mention when booking, or book through ship and let them know).

I am the opposite - I am underwhelmed with Mendenhall glacier (when you visit the Visitor Center --not land on the glacier). So much to do in Juneau, I don't put this as a priority. I have done the...

I would want a real camera just purely for the zoom. Don't skimp.

Seward is a gem and there is quite a bit to do there! Too bad you missed it.

Disembarking in Vancouver can be messy at times. They often say not to book a flight before noon. Not sure if the train takes off that same day in Calgary but that may be cutting it close or if you...

Kenai Fiords would get my vote. Yes -there are plenty of things to do in Seward if you choose to not do this tour. Also, the drive or train ride from Seward to Anchorage is great for scenery.

What times are you in Juneau?

I would do the Kenai Fiords trip. I wouldn't miss it.

We had the same thing happen. It was perfect. Other times I have been there, the weather hasn't cooperated and it wasn't as "amazing". Still a great place to visit.
