I've booked a cruise on Holland departing Vancouver and ending in Anchorage on Sunday, August 7, the ship scheduled to dock at 6 AM. I'm guessing that the passengers (my daughter and son-in-law) won't get off the boat and be free to navigate to the airport until nine-ish at the earliest.
Surveying flights back to Dallas, I find one at 0930, which I'm guessing is too early. Is it reasonable for them to make a 10:30 AM flight? I've not made this cruise, so I'm ignorant of things like time/transportation between the port and the airport, and related matters.
After that 10:30 AM flight, it appears that almost every flight requires a connection AND that the first leg does not begin until 8:30 PM that evening or later. No matter what the connecting city, their flight back to Dallas amounts to a red-eye with a connection.
Soooooooooo..... if they're going to spend the day in Anchorage before their flight that evening, is there something to see/do in Anchorage on Sunday in the vicinity of the port? Spending the day at the airport seems pretty anti-climactic.
Any advice in the next 48 hours would be Most Appreciated, as I'm wanting to nail down the airline reservations.
