Recommended Posts

We are going on a wheeled dog sled/visit to the musher's camp excursion next month. Booked through the cruise line.

First cruise on Serenade of the Seas, 5/30/04!

I would split up the group and those who wish to - go. There is little comparism to glacier and cart dog sledding. The cart sledding is availble from Skagway, Seward - the top choice in my opinion and the cheapest deal around at the Wasilla Dog Sled headquarter's museum for $5. There are many more around Denali park and I highly recommend Northern Sky lodge between Denali Park and Fairbanks.

Thanks BQ. I assume you agree with others about the glacier sledding being a much cooler "Alaskan" experience than the wheeled version. Sounds from this board and it hink you that it gets cancelled with some regularity but it sounds like what most of us will want to do (including me!) Juneau right now looks like the heli dog sled and then right to captain larry. What are your thoughts on Skagway where the plan is railroad and then emerald lake by horse with i guess some doing the wheeled dog sled. Im tempted to do the slightseeing but emerald lake and horses sounds nice and something all 12 of us could do. ketchikian is looking like kayaks if it's not raining. sounds like the kids in my group, 8, 12 and 13 might like that lumberjack show that otherwise adults here say isnt anything special. those are the threee ports we hit on the hubard glacier renaissance of the seas cruise.

Yes the Juneau glaicer dog sledding tour is the most canceled of Alaska excursions. [img]http://messages.cruisecritic.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img] But plenty do run. The Lumberjack show would be a hit for the kids, the adults can shop or take a walk about town.

sf....please have mercy on us "wussies" that can see no conceivable reason for leaving perfectly good solid ground and wooshing our large behinds thru the sky...tempting the carnivorous wildlife below with a massive lunch-buffet!

It truly sounds like an awesome experience....but one I'd die just as happy not doing!!!
