Default June 2 Sailing Sea Princess

We have booked the Misty Fjord seaplane exploration, the
Mendenhall Glacier Float trip, Wildlife sightseeing Quest,
the WhitePass Scenic Railway and a visit to Historic Haines.
Would love to hear from those of you, who have done these
excursions.... Also taking the Grandview Rail from Seward to
Anchorage, and would like to hear about that too.
I am sure it will all be wonderful beyond belief. We can't wait!

Sharon,

Have you already recieved your cruise packets with the excursions or did you book your own? We are sailing the Sun princess june 11 out of vancouver and i am VERY anxiously awaiting the shore excursion packet. My TA says it should be in this week but i'm not sure.

We actually booked our excursions right online, go to WWW.
Princess.com click on access your booking and if you have
your booking number, you can book your excusions right on
line. It was great. And they were confirmed at that time.

For those who have seen my posts, I avoid all ship excursions in favor of cheaper independently booked ones. I do not recommend the Mendenhall float trip- you have only a brief distant view of the glacier and the rest of the trip is trees and backyards, money is better spent elsewhere. Misty Fjords float plane is a good excursion- but like I said I book directly with the airline and sit side by side a cruise passenger who paid more. White Pass is a very historic and scenic trip- again - cheaper directly from the rail road on the same trip. Your wildlife quest- is that out of Sitka- great for sea otter watching. The train again Seward- Anchorage is wonderful. Haines has great eagle watching and historic Fort Seward. If desired I can give you the links to direct bookings.

Don't believe them when Princess tells you they will send the packet out 60 days before the cruise. I am going on Dawn Princess 6/9 and my TA told me she just received my packet and is forwarding it on to me. I got tired of waiting and booked some of my own excursions, thanks to this website. Princess may allow booking on-line but they don't give you any detail. Oh, well. I guess they just lost the commission they would have received from me had they been faster.

The Juneau float.....it's not whitewater, strictly a slow moving float. Would suggesting taking a helicopter tour or trip to Taku Lodge. You'll receive more for your money.
