Thank you thank you everyone for all your help!!! I'm learning a lot. Thank you again.
I'm a little worried about the early departure as well. But I kinda want to stay with Celebrity since it's the line we've already been going on. And the solstice on 5/8/14 cost a lot better than the others I'm seeing
If I could ask another question... what are the chances you think these excursions will be cancelled due to the weather in early May?
- ATV expedition and ziprider (zipline) - Icy Strait Point, AK
- Mendenhall Glacier by helicopter & guided walk - Juneau, AK
- Dog Sledding & glacier flightseeing - Skagway, AK
- Misty Fjords flightseeing - Ketchikan, AK
Thank you so much!
The dog sledding may not even be set up, I would suggest you contact TEMSO- the vendor and inquire. That is also your vendor out of Juneau, but there are 2 others. Mendenhall is not better/worse than any other glacier, just more known. These would be operating, but cancelations- you will not know until you get there, and no way to predict.
Misty flightseeing, would be operating, again, they do go in rain but, no way to predict any cancelation. Hoonah- this tour may not be available either? Be aware- that cruise lines DO allow you to make reservations on tours that have the chance to not operator. The reservations are in place, in case they are able to set up the tours. No guarantee they are a go, until closer to arriving.
IF these are your tour priorities, I suggest you book a later cruise, end of May, they all would be operating. But same issue with the cancelations.
Happy Alaska travels
