Morton - Answered a Question by ALMOND (29 Jan 09 18:08)

We did the exact cruise, same ship, 3 yrs ago. We booked the transfer with HAL Seward to Anchorage. It's quite a ddistance, probably over 2 and a half hours not counting the stops. We stayed a couple of days there and then flew home. We have cruised the inside passage 3 times now, Van-Van twice and Van to Seward once. The trip that stands out was the day into the Yukon, fantastic day. Obviously we have done quite a few different excursions over the years. The Mendenhall glacier is a popular one as is the side trip down Tracy Arm. Sitka is a lovely town[you can walk this one yourself] and Skagway is the gateway to the Yukon. We have yet to fly the Misty Fiords over Ketchikan 'cos it's too misty and the flights have been cancelled. My son and I kayaked down one of the fiords in Ketchikan the last time we were there and it was an outstanding experience. The husband went to a lumberjack show! Too much information to give in one account. Anything more specific, do ask. It's a fabulous trip. We will go again in a few years time.

Heading to the Caribbean?

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

With major hurricanes bartering through the United Stated and the Caribbean over the last couple of months I have received a huge amount of calls from obviously concerned passengers as to whether their cruise will still be happening, and if so will the itinerary still be the same.Having worked in the Caribbean for a couple of years with Thomson I have been in the middle of a couple of Hurricanes and dealt with the aftermath too from evacuating Islands, to holding the fort in hurricane shelter...
