  1. You might look in to the Ketchikan taxi tours. We did that a few years ago and they were about 75.00 pp for about 4 hours. They have "usual places" but will also customize the drive to what you want to do and see. We loved it. Hope you heal quickly - that's not a fun way to start a trip.
  2. Thanks so much to everyone for your information. I think we're going to stick with doing the SB and fly into Anchorage a couple of days early to enjoy it. Happy Travels everyone.
  3. What are the advantages of NB vs SB Voyage of the Glaciers on Princess - other than looking an length of port times? I've done SB a couple of times and "need" to go to Alaska again in 2020. I love the SB itinerary but wonder am I missing anything by not trying NB. It looks like most of the excursions are the same - except of course the disembarkation point. Thanks.
  4. Perfect thanks so much. I am currently at 12 - but have a 1 credit and a 2 credit already schedule. That will get me to 15 full credits. Bummer that they didn't make you Elite but at least you'll have it for the next one. This is what I was reading that lead me to believe that you had to "complete" the cruise with the 16th credit. ELITE From your 16th cruise credit on, or 151+ cruise days Thanks again.
  5. We are going to be staying two nights in NYC in October before our New England/Canada cruise. We purchased the Princess transfer from the hotel to the port. Does anyone know how the pick up works? We are wondering if we can check out of our hotel, leave the luggage and then do a little sightseeing in the morning. Do they do multiple pick ups or only one? We "can" board around 1 and sail away is at 4pm. Thanks in advance for your time.
  6. If I will be starting my cruise as a solo trip would I be granted Elite status at the beginning or end of the cruise? I will be credited with #16 and #17 on this cruise. At the end of the cruise I would have 17 cruise credits. The Captain's Circle info says when you received your 16th credit you become Elite. Just wondering. Thanks.
  7. We'll be going to Acadia in October via a Princess cruise. They have an excursion that is a 3 hour "guided walk" that is listed as strenuous. Has anyone done this walk? Do they consider it strenuous because it's three hours (almost) of walking, or are there significant changes in altitude? Thank you in advance for any information.
  8. Would you say that Ned Devine's is "better" than Legal Seafoods? Thanks
  9. Thank you for the recommendation. We're staying the week in Anchorage - with a one night stay in Seward. I think one more hotel and I would push the hubby over the edge.
  10. Thanks for pointing that out. I was planning on being there early - but now will make SURE to be there a couple of hours early. Have a great cruise!
  11. Thank you. Will definitely include that prayer. :)
  12. I will be the week of May 14th. We figure to drive straight to Seward, do the cruise and spend the night. Then the next day slowly may our way back to Anchorage. We want to make several stops including the Wildlife Center. Thanks.
  13. Wonderful - I think I'll plan for 3 hours just to be safe. Thank you!
  14. Oh, duh. Thanks so much. I've been to both via bus and train and couldn't remember which was which. Thank you!
  15. We are going to be driving from Anchorage to Seward for a Kenai Fjords Cruise. (on a Monday if that matters) We need to be there for an 11:00 sail away on Major Marine Tours. What time would we need to leave Anchorage to make it there (a little early)? I know there are tunnel time issues - but I'm not sure how long it takes to get from Anchorage to the tunnel and then the tunnel to Seward. Thanks in advance.
