It's a fabulous itinerary. Wish I didn't already have other obligations that can't be changed.
We booked the June 14th cruise while we sailed on the Westerdam back in Apri/May.
OK. It's a done deal. June 14th. Cat DA. Cabin 2647 (starboard). Calgon, SunFlower and NewMoon.
See y'all AN BOORD!!!!!!!
I am beginning to look seasick I am so green! What a wonderful itinerary...but what on earth would my little Yorkshire Terrorists (Yorkies) do if I were to leave them for that long???
Congrats !! I am seriously looking into this cruise, never been to Alaska
I think its time!!
Absolutely Earl! Please join us.....
Earl -- join us on June 14th!!
Just as an FYI, HAL received permission to cruise Glacier Bay on this itinerary so Tracy Arm Fjord has now been replaced by Glacier Bay.
I mentioned that above.
Really like going to Glacier Bay better than Tracy Arm.
Oops - missed that, obviously!
Tracy Arm can be very scenic, but you never know if ice floes will prevent getting all the way in to or near Sawyer Glacier. Glacier Bay, of course, has lots more to offer as you well know.
We were fortunate that both times Tracy Arm was on our itineraries -- we were able to get close.
I have heard that others didn't.
Especially earlier in the Alaska cruise season, the ice floes can be too thick for a ship to navigate safely - they'll need to turn around.
Sounds like a fabulous itinerary-- have a great time -
I know that we will!!
When you are in Anchorage, you can day fish by using anchoragedayfishing $450 for the day.
Haven't fished in years -- DH doesn't like it.
Calgon is trying to hide from me, but he did not succeed (obviously)!
I see the last time I posted we were booked on the virgin cruise. They had perfect weather. Had to cancel that one, regroup, and we are now booked on the August 9th sailing. 64 days from today!
BTW, we cruised Tracy Arm last June, (2009), and could not get close to the glacier because there was just too much ice in the water.
We are still upset that we had to cancel our June 14 cruise. Next year's isn't as appealing a schedule as this years.
Hi Vada. Nice to see you on this board. C@ is where Calgon and I live most of the time.
It seems that HAL has changed the time in Victoria, but hasn't posted it on their site yet. The time has changed from 2pm - 8pm to 4pm to 11pm. We have a whale watching excursion booked at 3:30pm, so we'll be looking into alternate plans.
How long does it take for HAL to update their itineraries?
It can take HAL anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks to a month before they change the information on their site.
One time we didn't even know of an itinerary change until we got to the cruise terminal.
