New2CruisingGA Posted October 26, 2006 #1 Share Posted October 26, 2006 Hi everyone! Well found out last night after my first post on here that for the big Christmas present from my parents that they are planning on sending everyone in our immediate family on a cruise to Alaska! I'm so excited. I didn't think that I would be this excited about going to Alaska, originally didn't think there would be much to do, I think i'm more excited about spending time with our family. I am excited about getting to walk across a glacier and doing a sled dog race thing, but what else is there to do for excursions? What should I not miss while there? Any activities that the older folks can do that have walking problems? I've been on a cruise before, but my parents never have so I know they are looking forward to it, and I think we are going to get one of the nicer suites...I think they are thinking since they are going ahead with it then they might as well go all out. :) When is the best time to go to Alaska? I know they have their darker times and their lighter times, and we want to go when it is sunnier. I already have 2 weeks scheduled off in mid-April at work, would that be a good time to take off, or should I re-schedule that? Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!:D Keri 1st cruise-Western European Capitals-Golden Princess May 2005 2nd cruise-Alaska-?????? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
