We did a previous cruise to Alaska, during the same week, 4 years ago, and had wonderful weather. I must say, though, that Alaska is beautiful, in any weather! Oh, and I didn't mention that when we were going by bus, from Seward to Denali, that we were in hurricane force winds! I was must say that I was a might concerned.
No one to blame, that is for sure, and we made the most of our time, going from place to place, in our rain gear. I have no complaints against HAL, but find it interesting that they haven't even acknowledged that the cruise wasn't all it could have been. Our cruise ended Wednesday morning, after a night in Achorage, and most our group had great difficultly flying out. Our flight left at 11:59 pm, and planes were just beginning to land/depart, so we were able to fly out. We were laughing, and saying that an earthquake would be next!
