Default Re: total extra cost alaskan cruise

Did Alaska 6/03 on Celebrity Mercury. The big extra cost here is the shore trips. All are very pricey and we were on a ver, very tight budget as oldest daughter got married 2 months later. So FYI: in both Sitka and Juneau the native tribes operate on/off buses that hit most of the major tourist sites for a very reasonable pp charge, like about $15 for all day privaleges. No we didn't dogsled or flight see but we got a taste and I am lokking to go again summer 05 but youngest daughter is getting married then. Also, in Juneau the cruise lines offer a tour to Medenhall glacier. DON'T. It is much cheaper on your own. The bus from the pier is $5 each way andI forget the fee bas hubby is handicapped and we have a US National Parks freeby pass.
