4.0 out of 5 stars Good cruise preparation 11 May 2010
This provides a useful summary of the principal sights for the pre-cruise planning period (we've yet to test it in reality). Caution in removing the map from the back as it does not tear out easily.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have reference for any Alaska cruise. 11 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Anne Vipond's straightforward style, well-conceived organization, and excellent content make this book indispensable for Alaska-bound cruisers. Anne patiently describes all the major cruise ports in Alaska and the Inside Passage. The detailed town maps with keys to the text descriptions are excellent. Descriptions of various attractions meaty, yet brief. The thing that is most attractive about this book is its focus on activities interesting to cruisers, as opposed to the long list of hotels and restaurants common in other guide books. Anyone taking a cruise to Alaska will find this book invaluable. It seems to be the only reference available that provides assistance in planning your trip to make maximum benefit from your time in each port.

5.0 out of 5 stars All You Need 4 Jun 2003
By gotta run now - Published on Amazon.com
This is all you need to plan your time while on your Alaska cruise. I wanted a book that would enable me to make decisions about where to go when in port, what to see, what to not bother with, and how to amuse myself and my family. Like everybody taking a cruise, we wanted to get as much out of it as possible! This book is an indispensable guide to what you will see on your Alaska cruise. It describes the various ports of call, has maps of the towns, suggestions for what to do with your free time, what not to miss. Having this book precluded me from lugging around 3 different books and grabbing all those touristy brochures along the way. Have you chosen Alaska for your cruise destination? Then take this book along. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The benchmark for Alaska cruise guides... 21 Oct 2003
By Steve Pickering - Published on Amazon.com
Excellent coverage of Alaskan ports, including most of the minor ports visited by smaller ships. Essential for the Alaska-bound travelers who wish to maximize their experience in ports of call. By using the walking guides and descriptions of attractions, readers will be able to visit the high points of each port, and skip destinations with less appeal. Helps to cut down on the expense of shore excursions by suggesting interesting alternatives. Also assists you to choose the correct shore excursion for your interests. If you're traveling to Alaska, this is an essential companion. Also contains information on weather, dress, culture, and what to expect in general. Many maps and illustrations add an additional dimension of clarity to the excellent text. - Steve Pickering at DoctorCruise.com

4.0 out of 5 stars A very descriptive book if you are taking a cruise to Alaska 4 April 2007
By Aaron D. Widdifield - Published on Amazon.com
I am going on a cruise to Alaska this August and this book has all the information about the areas of Alaska that you can visit, so I feel for the money, it is an excellent investment! However, I would suggest purchasing the current Frommer's guide to go along with it because it has the most current and up to date contact informaton for all of the excursions that you can take when you are at port in the cities you will be visiting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative and enjoyable 7 Jun 2004
By Wayne A. Hazle - Published on Amazon.com
I just got back from Alaska (June 04) this book had great information. I definitely recommend getting it a MONTH before your cruise and reading it through. Getting it the day before is a little late :(
