Excursions from RC Cruise ship

Hi All,

We cruise Seattle to Vancouver 29th Aug - 5th Sep on the Rhapsody of the Seas, stopping at:

31-Aug Juneau, Alaska 12:00 21:00 Docked

01-Sep Skagway, Alaska 07:00 20:30 Docked

02-Sep Tracy Arm Fjord, Alaska 07:00 14:00 Cruising

03-Sep Ketchikan, Alaska 08:00 18:00 Docked

What are the MUST SEE excursions ? Funds aren't limitless but I will spring for a couple of good (expensive) trips. No kids & were in our 50's.

Is any special clothing required or provided for any particular trips ?

Also how cold is it likely to get ?

Any other important tips ?

Many thanks as I'm sure these questions have been posted a thousand times before.

We enjoyed the whale watching in Juneau with Harv and Marv. You might want to think about ponying up some real cash for an excursion in the other ports e.g.float plane etc. Didnt do it but probably should have since what we did wasnt great.

42-62 F temp average in inside passage AK. So cold and rainy but you could get sun. Be prepared for anything and wear layers.

You are the only one that provides clothing, unless you buy it on land.
