First Alaska Cruise-need recommendations

Jump to last reply

We will leave in a week on RC and stop at Ketchikan, Icy Strait Point, Juneau, Skagway and Seward. The number of excursions and prices are overwhelming.

Can anyone suggest something that they would consider "not miss" in any of these places, please? We are traveling with family ages 15-75. So we would like to hear anything. We will not necessarily do everything together.

We esp. would like to see Bears, and get a good sense of each place. Are some easy to explore on foot without needing a tour?

We will also have a few days in Denali, taking the train and spending time at Talkeetna as well.

Also, that time of year what would you say would be the temperature range? Thanks.
