    Planning Wonder Alaska 7 night for June 2019. Already have idea of port adventures for Skagaway and Juneau if they are the same as showing now, but wonder if anything to do ourselves in Ketchikan such as walk the town. And not schedule a port tour.

    Ahoy, Anita!

    It is great to hEAR from you again. Your plans sound like they are really coming together for your Alaskan adventure in 2019. I spent a lot of time researching the best Alaskan excursions for my crew and felt like it really paid off when we finally got to experience them. I'm sure the same will be true for you! 

    One thing I loved about our cruise to Alaska was that every port had a unique feel. When you arrive in Ketchikan, the ship pulls right into town. Within walking distance, you'll find lots of shops to explore, the famous Creek Street and Dolly's House and some fun Totem Pole photo opportunities. We enjoyed finding some local treasures and visiting KetchiCandies for some delicious chocolate treats. 

    Anita, we had plenty of time to walk around the town and experience two port adventures while in Ketchikan. If you change your mind and want to reserve something I recommend either the Rainforest Canopy and Zipline Expedition or the Bering Sea Crab Fisherman's Tour. If you want something a little more budget friendly, the Exclusive Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show is just a few steps from the ship and only lasts about an hour. My kids thought it was so entertaining and laughed out loud several times at the lumberjacks' antics! 

    Good luck with the rest of your planning, Anita. Please feel free to write back if you want to bounce anymore of your ideas off of us. We are always happy to help!
