We are headed to Alaska in May of 2018 ( departing out of Vancouver) and arriving in Seward.
Looking for a few opinions/suggestions regarding the following...
1) Best things to do in Vancouver - will have a Friday evening and all day Saturday and Saturday night
2) Best excursions to do in SKAGWAY, JUNEAU and KETCHIKAN
3) (THIS IS THE PART I AM STRUGGLING WITH) Landing in Seward - Should we stay two days here in Seward and do some excursions out of here? Should we spend the money and do two nights at the Kenai Fjords Lodge? Or possibly stay one night in Seward and then drive to Alyeska for a night?
(headed to Anchorage for departure at some point) Thinking that financially the Lodge is very pricey.
Also considering Orca Islands Cabins in or near Seward - anyone been here? Worth doing?
4) Is it better to skip doing anything in Anchorage as I heave heard that it is just another big city? We have to come here anyways to fly home but was wondering if it is better to spend our time elsewhere and then just fly out of here..
Any thoughts/ideas are welcome!
