Hi - We are booked on the Carnival Spirit SB July 4th, 2007. We are also flying in the Saturday before. We are renting a car - spending 1 or 2 days in Anchorage - then off to Seward 2 or 4 days - then off to the cruise on the 4th of July. The great thing is that Seward has a great 4th of July celebration. We also plan to fish during our vacation - just not sure if that will be in Seward or Ketchikan.
So far we are looking at doing >>>>>
Seward - Exit Glacier, Bay tour, Sealife Center, 4th of July activities, Portage Glacier on the way to the ship
Sitka - Kayaking, walking around town, ??
Juneau - Whale Watching with Cpt Larry, Mendenhall Glacier and possible a glacier landing (Coastal).
Ketchikan - Fishing, walking around town.
Skagway - renting a car, sriving to Emerald Lake maybe Carcross.
I haven't nailed down all the independents that we will use.
I don't know which week would be better in July - but I like the fact that over the 4th there is one day I won't have to use my vacation time. You're other choice is the 18th of July.
Hope to Sea U Onboard - Cheryl
