First to Barb: Thanks for the great tip on Northern Light viewing. What a great idea. We will definitely ask for a wake up call. I don't care what time it is! The Wilderness Express sounds like a great time. What I love about this tour is that there is a little bit of everything. Air, rail, bus, cruise, etc. I called Celebrity today and they said they usually use the Mariott in Anchorage, but we won't know until we are ticketed where we are staying in Denali or Fairbanks as they use several different hotels. I appreciate your feedback on the various places you've stayed. Have a wonderful time on your upcoming trip. Seven days to go!!!!
Second to Al1993: We hadn't seen anyone on our trip yet either, but I think Sheree may be on ours? We can't go in June because of our work schedules. As far as tours, because of all the great reviews, we've booked Capt. Larry in Juneau, we have the Yukon 4 x 4 Jeep Adventure in Skagway (we did the White Pass train last time and it was great), and the Duck Tour in Ketchikan (again because of the good reviews). Haven't decided on Icy Straight yet. Not sure if we should book something thru Celebrity or wing it. Have been reading the posts from one of the residents that lives there. He is giving some wonderful info on Icy Straight. So we'll see what we end up doing. I will look forward to reading your reviews when you return. Have a great time!
Last to Sheree: Hello! Not sure if you are on the same cruise as we are, but we are really looking forward to our trip. I have rec'd some informative visitors' guides from Fairbanks, Anchorage and Juneau. I'm sure you'll have fun on your precruise. The McKinley Chalet should be wonderful. I can't wait to find out where we are staying.
Thanks to all of you for responding to my post. Sleddogs
