My wife and I are booked on the Infinity for the July 4 Alaskan cruise, and I see that some excursions are already sold out. Specifically, the dog sledding in Juneau, which my wife has wanted to do for years. I tried calling all the local operators, and they are sold out as well. I called Celebrity and they said that they reserve a limited amount of excursions to be bought on board, and that my best bet would be to go to the guest services desk after I board and try to book them.
So before I break it to my wife that we can't do the excursion, does anyone know the chances of this excursion actually being available on board? If they are available, is there a mad rush to the excursions desk where people scramble to get the last remaining slots?
First of all, take a deep breath...been there, done that.
You're going to have a wonderful time on the Infinity in Alaska. We took that very same trip just a few weeks ago. Okay, we had the same problem but with a "sold out" sea kayaking excursion. We boarded the Infinity about 11:30 am and went straight to the Excursion Desk which opened at 12 noon. Stood in a fast-moving line and booked the desired excursion without any problems. Can't forsee any problems unless you are arriving quite a bit later. Most importantly, relax and enjoy your cruise as you are in for some spectacular scenery.
