ALASKAN CRUISE - MAY 2017

Jump to last reply

We have booked a cruise for 14th May next year starting and finishing in Seattle. We are stopping in Ketchikan, Juneau, Sitka & Victoria and viewing the Hubbard Glacier. I have been warned that it could be very cold which I don't mind as we will take layers and a warm jacket with us. Could someone who has cruised at that time confirm what the weather was like. Obviously it is still a long way off but what sort of tours are good if you are on a moderate budget? The cruise is coming at the end of our 3 week holiday so we may decide to splurge if we have the funds and go on a float plane trip. It would be nice to know which one is the best. In some places it may not be necessary to do a tour as one the couples who went to Ketchikan suggested. We are reasonably fit over 70s and l love photography so nature & wildlife are more important than museums. We also thought of doing the tour in Seattle on our return that finishes at the Airport. Has anyone done that?
Someone also mentioned that it is not so good to be high up in the ship as one feels the rocking and rolling. We are travelling on Holland America and our cabin is 7116 which I think is quite high. Any advice there. I look forward to some advice and suggestions.
