NCL Star 8-15-04 "Cant miss excursions"


Recommended Posts

When we traveled to the Caribbean last year you all were very helpful in telling us what we should not miss. Now we are taking a cruise to Alaska in August and need to know the same thing. We are stopping at:
Victoria BC.
We would like to find things both for us (with 2 daughters 18 and 20) as well as for the in-laws (70 years old).
Thanks for all your help in advance.

Victoria: If you're there long enough, can't miss Butchart Gardens. And the Butterfly Gardens nearby. People come from around the world to see Butchart.

Juneau: Mendenhall Glacier. I'd suggest the canoe trip to get up close. Mt. Roberts Tram is great too.

Ketchikan: Misty Fjords flightseeing, if you can afford it. Walking Creek Street is fun.

Skagway: The train is nice. The in-laws may fall asleep.

Look over a shore excursion list and narrow down your intersts. There are just TOO many excellent tours to consider otherwise. Budget fully - you get only half a trip without the touring. I would also not hesistate to split up your group- go with the interests of the individuals, tours are too great to miss out and too costly if not of interest.
