Hello, My husband and I are taking our first trip to Alaska on a cruise with Princess. We have booked the following excursion and want to make sure that they are OK, or if anyone has any suggestions. We also would love any suggestions for places to visit while not doing an excursion. For example-a good place to purchase Salmon and have it shipped back home, or any cool shops to buy momentos for family and friends. We should have at least 2-3 hours at each port after we do our excusions. So any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!
