Juneau Glacier Tours Tours Page #2
(Recommended: Instead of these high priced tours, wait until you get off the ship and go to a booth that sells bus tickets to the Mendenhall Glacier. Costs about $20 or so. Don't miss it. When done with that, take the Tram up to the top and see the great view of the harbor.)

Cruise Tips From A One Timer
1.Pay the extra and get a cabin with a balcony. If you don't, you will spend the rest of your life regretting it. True, you do not spend a lot of time in your cabin, but you would not be leaving your cabin just to get out of what feels like a closet. And, if you can afford a cruise, you really might have a closet that is bigger than some of these cabins.
2. You do not have to spend all that money on the ship's on-shore, prearranged tours. You can find much cheaper prices for similar tours at every dock once you get off the ship. The buses may not be as fancy but the price might be half of what you would have paid on the ship and you will get there just the same. Or, just walk around the towns. Lots of things to see and do.
3. Don't drink the cans of soda or bottles of water in your room. You will be charged for them and there is a big markup. They keep track of them.
4. Save some money to get your wife a Ship's bathrobe. They are a nice souvenier.
5. When you don't have a waiter, get your table before you get your food.
6. Don't count on touring Victoria B.C. We got into port after 8 p.m. Too late to do anything. I think they put this stop on the schedule just to have an extra city. We have toured Victoria before and recommend, if you like flowers and you get in for half a day tour, The Butchart Gardens. Fifty-five acres of stunning floral show gardens and a National Historic Site of Canada
