Hi,
We are going on this cruise and it will be our very first. We are coming over from Australia so it is going to be great. My daughter who is 16 will be coming.
Cheers,
Christine.

Hi Christine,
You are in for a very nice treat...Cruised Star Princess in Alaska a few years ago. Had a great time, weather cooperated nicely too. It may take a day or two to figure out getting around on this class ship, but once you figure it out, it's OK.

Thanks for your kind words Donna. We are really looking forward to the cruise and part of the adventure will be learning all about cruising for the first time. As far as visiting Alaska goes, I can't really imagine a place more different from our climate and terrain here in Australia. I think it will be terrific. Cheers, Christine.

I am studying all the excursions on offer from Princess at the moment, but it is really hard to decide which to choose. They all look really interesting. Part of the fun of planning. I hope this is the first of many cruises. This site has been so very helpful in educating myself about how to go about the whole process. People are terrific how they share their opinions.

There are so many good tours to take in Alaska, just go through them all and decide, since they are not cheap by any means. I would suggest doing the White Pass Railroad in Skagway, some awesome senery along the way and also narriated on the way up.

In Juneau, look into whale watching, you can book with Capt. Larry, Orka enterprises, they are on the internet, great group of people that know their stuff.

There are just quite a few really good one, see what is of interet to you.
