Default Norwegian Star to Alaska in June

I am booked on the Norwegian Star in June. I am looking for opinions on shore excursions. Are there any that are "musts?" Or are there some that should be avoided? Any opinions on the Norwegian Star and NCL service, etc? thnx

Look over a shore excursion list and narrow down your interests. There are just too many choices otherwise. As for "musts"?? Yes more than enough for 10 trips!!!

Hi Bill...

I am part of a group that is on the NCL Star 6/27/04 sailing. Any chance you're on the same one? A few in our group have sailed on the Star before and give her high marks. Since I haven't sailed on NCL yet or to Alaska - this will be a new adventure for me

Hi

Yes, the cruise on 6/27/04 is the one that we will be on. This is our first cruise to Alaska, so are looking forward to this and hoping for good weather.

We loved the White Pass RR in Skagway.

The Duck tour in Ketchikan was a lot of fun we felt as well.

You can catch a bus at the dock in Juneau for about $10 each round trip to take you to Mendehall Glacier (visitor center costs extra). Try and go there. You don't need to book an excursion ahead of time to do that. Unless of course you want to combine with a salmon bake or canoe trip (we didn't).

Also if you're not afraid of heights the Mt. Roberts tramway in Juneau is spectacular. This is also at the dock and you don't need to book ahead of time.

Juneau, Skagway, and Ketchikan are all very small towns and easy to do self guided walking tours. Just check the maps for spots you may want to see. And of course there is easy access to the many gift shops.

Bill,

We're on the same cruise! There is a group of us sailing and you should come by the Cruise Critic Message Boards and join in our dicussions. You can locate us in the Norwegian Cruise Line folder under "Are There Any Star Lovers Cruising To Alaska"?

Hope to meet you on board!

Linda
