Default Salmon Bake?

Is it worth it to go to a salmon bake when we are in Alaska? Hubby thinks that the ship (Carnival Spirit) will have salmon so why should we spend the money?

We were probably the only 2 on our Alaska cruise not to go to the salmon bake

I have been on more than a dozens Alaskan cruises and have never been on a salmon bake. While I can't comment on whether or not they are worth it, I have always found plenty of good food including salmon onboard.

The "ship" salmon is in NO way comparable to anything prepared or eaten in Alaska.

It this is fine for you, then skip it. I actually like Thane Ore House for salmon in Juneau, smaller than the salmon bakes.

I live in the part of the UK famous for salmon and cannot understand why anyone would want to ruin a magnificent fish by baking it!

Each to their own.

I looked up the Thane Ore House on line, and the last update is from 2009. Are they still open?

Hmm... that's a bit like visiting India on a cruise & not having a curry, or visiting the Grand Canyon & saying "I've seen a hole in the ground before!" Freshly caught wild salmon or something of dubious origin on the ship....hmm..

The salmon "bake" that we went to was not baked at all, but grilled on an open fire. I think the term "bake" is just an expression.

I have seen the Grand Canyon several times and is worthy of the much overused term 'Awesome'.

I love curries and when I work in India - apart from the odd Biryani - avoid them.

The Grand Canyon is unique; curries in India are not unique IMHO.

Last word - if Salmon is grilled - call it grilled not baked.

Maybe the Indian curry thing would be a bit risky.. but you see what I mean, something to be experienced in the place where it originates or is best.

I would like to know the answer also.

Is it worth it to go to a salmon bake when we are in Alaska?
What is the difference? In my little bubble of the world every restaraunt bakes it. Usualy on a cedar plank (wood).

HI!

My husband and I went on Salmon Bake in Alsaka... It was outside Skagway in an old mining town called Liarsville... Very Good.
