    We are heading on our first cruise next summer. Disney Alaska cruise - 7 day. What are the best port activities for a family of 5 (parens + 3 teenagers)?

    Hi Chris!

    Thanks for sailing to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Congratulations on booking your inaugural voyage with Captain Mickey! You are going to be amazed at all the fun and adventure that awaits you aboard your Disney Cruise ship! The schedule of each day's activities will be listed in your Personal Navigator newsletter and the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app. There is something onboard for everyone in your family to enjoy!

    You've chosen an unbelievable itinerary for your first Disney Cruise! My family has sailed to Alaska aboard the Disney Wonder twice, and can't wait to go back! I'm not sure what activities your family enjoys doing, but I'm happy to share with you which Port Adventures I think your family should check out!

    The Best of Juneau excursion is actually three adventures in one! You'll enjoy whale watching, a delicious lunch (featuring Alaskan salmon) and visit the Mendenhall Glacier! We captured incredible pictures of whales jumping and playing in the water during this excursion! Another excursion your family might love is Bear Creek Zipline Adventures in Ketchikan! If you want to the ultimate Alaskan experience, I highly recommend Dog Sledding and Glacier Flightseeing in Skagway! How exciting would it be for your teenagers to experience dog sledding over a glacier during their summer vacation!?

    Chris, I hope you have so much fun planning for your first Disney Cruise! Please come back and visit us again with any future questions!
