Newbies -- Alaska Celebrity Solstice w/ 16 month old baby, lv next week

Jump to last reply

Husband and I have never been on a cruise before but we are traveling with my 80 yr old parents as well as my sister's family. We are generally independent travelers but we heard a cruise is a good way to see Alaska and to do a multi-generational trip. I spent a week in Kenai a few years ago fishing and it was an unforgettable trip with a fly-out one day and several all day fishing charters - I'm not expecting that kind of trip this time around.

I normally do a ton of research when I travel (and have participated heavily in Fodors forums) but I somehow thought cruises were like an all-inclusive. I didn't think about shore excursions. Me and the baby don't have valid passports right now - this means we don't disembark in BC? Or should we expedite some passports?

Itinerary:
Ketchikan
Tracy Arm Fjord
Juneau
Skagway
Alaska Inside Passage
BC

If people could suggest shore excursions for a couple with a 16 month old baby, maybe with older parents in tow, that would be a life-saver. We may not always do excursions with the parents if they don't feel well. We could bring a backpack carrier for the baby if that makes things easier, we didn't plan on bringing anything like a stroller. Apologies if the post is too general and annoying in its utter lack of preparation -- I don't normally do this.....
