Alaska cruise with boys ages 4 and 6

Jump to last reply

We will be on the Coral Princess sailing from Vancouver to Whittier in late June. I am the grandma taking my daughter and her family. We will not take many excursions but instead will rely on short hikes out of the places where we stop and public transportation. Three questions:

1). Can we leave the boys at the kid club on the ship while we do an excursion, or would the ship require one adult to be available on the ship? This would never be the whole day but might be up to five hours. I've been thinking I might stay with the boys and let my daughter and her husband do a zip line adventure. Any recommendation on the best zip line? Is it worth the cost?

2). We want to see a sled dog camp. We do not need to take rides but we do want the boys to be able to hold and pet puppies. Any suggestions as to where to do this? We will also be in Denali.

3). Does anyone have any other suggestions for what to do on land that doesn't cost a huge amount of money?

Thanks so much to anyone who might reply.
