Handicapp Gentleman wants to fish  (9 Answers)

I am a travel agent assisting a gentleman wishing to fish in one of these cities! He is in an electric wheelchair and has limited mobility of his legs and arms. He can stand up and move slowly with help from his dad. He will be in these cities in May and will arrive on 23 May in Ketchikan, 24 May in Juneau and 25 in Skagway. HIS WISH/DREAM is to go fishing! I've have tried thru Norwegian Cruise lines and ShoreTrips company but they are unable to assist us. Please call me at 800-264-0557 if you have a company that can make his wish come true! Regards, Holly @ Cruise and Travel Masters

womens hoodies  (4 Answers)

I was recently in Ketchikan while on a cruise, and I found a shop which had womens pullover hoodies (non-zip) in pretty pastel colors like aqua, green periwinkle, pink, with Ketchikan Alaska appliqued on the front. They were thick, high quality hoodies which were displayed on a table in the center of the store. I've called 20 or so shops, and nobody has them? Any suggestions? Thank you.

One Day Ketchikan Visit  (1 Answer)

I'm coming from a cruise in July and my family and I are only visiting Ketchikan for one day and I want to make the most out of it. Where's the best place to visit if we are only there for one day and there about 13-15 people, 5 of them under 14 but older than 4 and 3 of them around 70? Thank you so much!

ketchikan with 3 kids under 6  (4 Answers)

Coming in July on carnival cruise with dh and our 3 dk's (9 mnths, 2.5, and 5 yrs). We are bringing our double stroller (narrow- not wide) and a chest carrier. How easily can we navigate the sidewalks and stores with the stroller? I'd rather carry the baby and let the others walk but their little legs get tired so quickly that might not be an option. Is there anything the kids might really enjoy in town? And lastly, is there a nice green area where the kids can blow of steam or we could enjoy a scenic walk w /or w /out the stroller? Thanks so much!

Where's a good bar?  (6 Answers)

Now that you guys helped me find my hat, I need a good bar that's not a tourist trap (if there is such a thing). Just a quiet place to enjoy a beer or 3 before I get back on the ship.

I need a good hat  (6 Answers)

The Missus and I will be in Ketchikan on a cruise next month. While we'll be looking for an appropriate souvenir to bring home (any suggestions?), what I want is a good hat. Not a ballcap, or an "authentic" looking hat made in China, but a good Alaskan-made hat that I can wear on my next fishing trip out to the mountains of New Mexico when I get back home. A hat that I'll be proud to say, "I got it in Alaska". Could you guys recommend a store away from the tourist traps where I might find one?

Ketchikan Fishing  (3 Answers)

I had posted a question on Cruise Critic about best place to fish as a cruise passenger: Ketchikan (7/1) 8 hours in port or Skagway (6/29) 14 hours in port. Fishermen are 71 year old, 13 year old and maybe 9 year old. If you have recommendations on best fishing port and specific vendors it would be appreciated.

The Aleutian Ballad 3.5 hour tour from Ketchikan  (2 Answers)

Does anyone know what the regular price of this tour is? Their website doesn't say. My husband and I have the opportunity take this excursion with a group of people and a "celebrity". The company sponsoring it is charging175 per person. I don't mind paying a few extra$$ for a smaller crowd and to rub elbows with my favorite celebrity chef. However, am not willing to pay double the going rate just to line someone's pockets with my hard earned money. Our cruise stops in Ketchikan for only 6 hours. Is it worth the time and money? - Thanks
