When will you be to Alaska next? We spent 400 bucks (each) on walking the glacier in Jeaunu after a helicoptor ride. OMG - I would do it again in a heartbeat! What ports are you going to and I'll tell you what we did if I can remember..lol. You will love the ship - you will love everything about the trip!!! I hope you have a balcony!! the views are breathtaking!
This is exactly what we would have said ! We went in September Glacier Bay. You really do need to do the helicopter thing and for sure get a balcony.
Pack keeping in mind things that you can layer and put on or take off and carry in a small backpack ashore. Maybe a travel raincoat.
Be ready with a camera at all times !! Maybe have one you keep out on the balcony all the time.
The train ride up the mountain was fun. Grap the seat in the first rows for the heaters !
