I donít know, because Victoria might not be a ďdistantĒ foreign port and you would be starting in Seattle and ending in Anchorage. Iíd talk to RC, and get whatever they say in writing.

I planned a quick land/sea trip for my family of 4- my parents, and uncle and myself. I still went a bit nuts, and we didnít even see Denali.

If you do stage photography, you would understand why no photography is ever allowed in a theater, unless you have prior written permission. Iíve never seen a theater show that allows photography....

I had an underwater camera in the price range you are talking about, and a really expensive one as well. I could only get halfway decent shots of things that were still no matter which camera I had....

Why do those ships seem boring to you? I loved the Radiance (full disclosure: I have no children, but I felt like there was a TON of activities for kids/teens). Is it a real feel or something thatís...

Oh sorry, I see where you got confused. I did flight plus a 7 day tour in 9 days. It wasnít that difficult (although Iím from the southern part of the country). 2 overnight flights were kinda tough...

The excursions in Alaska are expensive. However, for many, the ports are why they go to Alaska, and the excursions become the highlight of their trip. When I first started to look into excursions, I...
Combination Juneau tour?
I really want to go on a whale watching tour in Juneau. My traveling companions have decided that we all must go on the dog sledding camp excursion (the one on dirt, not a glacier one).

Is there...

I find that in Alaska i want the long reach, but I also want the widest wide angle I can get. Itís actually why I went for an interchangeable lens system.

Which dog sledding excursion? If the glacier one was cancelled, maybe you could do the dirt one. We really enjoyed petting the puppies so much that we want to do it again!

If itís the dirt one,...

I have one, mostly for snorkeling and scuba diving. I also use it for time lapse photography off of the balconies on cruises. That lets me use my DSLR for photos.

What do you want to use it for? ...

In Skagway there was one with a lot of patterns. They had some digitally done prints as well. That was the only port I was allowed out without the rest of the family ;)

1) I feel like land tours are longer shore excursions. I did not go on one last year, but Iíve never heard anyone regret that they did one. The DIY vs added to cruise discussion would have me ask how...

Whatever I decide on, Iím going to rent for a weekend first to see if it all fits in the limit, and if Iíll use it all. If I donít like using it, I know that I wonít use it, and it will just be extra...

I agree. My family liked it so much that it became a must do for if we ever go back.

What would be in your camera bag?
Iím trying to figure out what camera equipment to take on my ďonce in a lifetimeĒ trip to Antarctica. I figured we could play a fun game of what would you take, and maybe Iíll get suggestions.

I did it. I love snorkeling/scuba diving and it was something I really wanted to do.

It sucked, and was non existent. Assume you wonít have it. I just got back from those ports a couple weeks ago, and it was extremely frustrating to not have any contact. I could (maaaaybe) get a text...
