Ketchikan Bus to Totem Bight and Saxman Totem Parks & Misc Ketchikan info
We were in Ketchikan yesterday. I just thought I'd relay my experiences using the silver bus line to get to both of the totem parks (but not the Totem Buseum in town) - at least from where we...

On Regatta now. Good, free service, both in room and pc center, but best in PC center. library pcs are slower. I was told there's no wifi in restaurants, intentional I believe. fine with me. I can...

You ARE using the little shelves by the mirror in the bathroom for storage, right? I find them adequate, although I realize I may not take as much stuff as many people - and seldom take more than 2...

Just jumping on here so that I can see what you write. We're on an Alaskan cruise soon, but different line.

Wow! Fabulous pictures. Do you mind telling about what MM lens you used to get those closeups? I'm trying to get an idea of what I can get!

From my research, that might be the case (AVIS being a half mile from the Franklin Street dock. I think it might be a bit more than that, but not positive. In any case, Juneau Car Rental, the other...

Most ships do anchor and tender, however, I know Viking Ocean was supposed to dock there. I say "supposed" because when we got there, the captain said the conditions weren't right and decided not to...

Thank you, everyone, for the wonderful information. I now know a lot more about what to expect, and it sounds great. I'm still looking on Marine Traffic to get an idea (hopefully) of what the...

Same applies to me. I'd go for a veranda if the difference in price weren't so great. But on our upcoming 11 day cruise, the difference between our F inside cabin and the lowest-priced veranda...

I would make sure what those offers include. Some cruise lines like Oceania often include airfare in their cruise price, but take off some if you aren't using their air. Before I found a wonderful...

Viking Ocean stores all life preservers by the boats, with none in the cabins. Some people really had a hard time accepting that, but to me it made sense.

Quite honestly, I don't have a problem...

I'm late to post, but here goes anyway: We almost always book an inside cabin. The difference in price makes it an easy choice for us. Besides, we're not claustrophobic, and don't spend much time...

Great; thanks. I'll be on her next week, Alaska bound. Please leave her in good shape for me, and hope you enjoyed those warm places like Havana. If I can't get good reception in my room (middle of...

Yes, sorry to sidetrack the thread a little. I know you were reporting on high speed (thanks, just in case I want to pay for it) and I was asking about regular speed! And yes, I was asking about...

Thanks. And does Oceania still have pc's people can use? I'm not crazy about tablets and phones for Internet browsing.
I only have 2 bars right now on my phone inside my house, so I'm not exactly...

I've never been part of a group trying to go ashore, unless you count a group of two. So maybe things are different in that case, as the Oceania excursion folks are probably trying to squeeze...

As for taking wine on board, we once saw someone (perhaps the host of a group??) taking on board what must have been at least 5 cases. We got a good chuckle out of that.

When you first find your room, note where the wall phone is on your deck. That will help clue you into which way you have to turn once you get off the elevator to get to your corridor. Then you can...

Yes, it's usually a little bit before the ship leaves on first day. However, if you're in port overnight, it may be the next day. If you're planning to go back out on embarkation day after checking...

Are there places on the ship where you can get faster speed compared to other places? I'm not planning to stream anything, but I do love my internet, so I'm hoping to be able to do a little surfing...
Hubbard Glacier Oddball Questions
We're going to spend a day in the Hubbard Glacier area. I'm not exactly sure exactly where that glacier is, so I was wondering if someone could tell me. It looks to be around Yakutat, Alaska, but...

You're right - free shuttle (salmon bus) does go by Totem Heritage Center.

At least on a cruise ship, if you're cold (or even warm, for that matter), you can just go back to your room and get something else to wear/not wear! I'm expecting it to be fairly cool on deck in...

There are also regularly-scheduled shuttles from the tram station by the port and back. However, you'd probably have to pay for a round trip ticket, so it wouldn't really be worth it, and I'm not...
Thank you so much. That helps a lot!
