5.0 out of 5 stars DIY Excursions! 6 Jun 2012
By Almwing
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very useful and informative and allowed us to enjoy the onshore excursions at a fraction of the cost that the cruise ship company was charging. We lived with 2000 people on board but it was a relief to get away from them and 'do our own thing' when we docked.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job 1 Sep 2013
By Karry
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is another example of "does what it says on the cover"... very useful and easy to read. Hope to use it more fully at some of the ports as we plan to explore on foot and local transport rather than pay for the cruise excursions.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Guide 5 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this as we are going on a cruise to Alaska this Summer - and we are a) first time 'cruisers' and b) not sure what excursions to book balanced against what independent investigating we could do. This guide has really helped us to plan confidently.

I can only comment on the delivery of this guide book for Alaska. It arrived by post promptly, as promised. And I have put it away for a christmas gift, as my husband and I are going to Alaska early next year. Thanks once again for efficient service.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alaska for the rest of us 29 Sep 2012
By P. Wesslaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Only been to Alaska once, on a cruise ship and bought a few guide books to make the most of it. I thought this book was really good for the detail on getting around the ports on your own. I couldn't afford a lot of the shore excursions so followed the advice in this book on seeing lots in the port on foot. I hiked to the graveyard in Skagway with the help of the map in this book and that, as well as the hike up to the lake trail overlooking the town, made Alaska forever memorable to me. I like the gal's writing style too, unassuming.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alaska Cruising 5 Feb 2012
By Karenc - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book in anticipation of my Alaskan cruise in June. It is filled with all sorts of information about each of the towns that I will be stopping at. It has helped me choose excursions that suit my interests and also gave me ideas of activities I can do on my own. This is a very informative book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Guide Book 18 Aug 2012
By La Jolla Traveler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Anne Vipond really knows Alaska and the joys and vagaries of cruising its coast. Her suggestions for shore excursions were right on, her maps and photographs excellent. I read about 20 guide books -- hers was the only one I bought!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice background - short on details 23 Jun 2012
By Franklin S. Reeder - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Anne Vipoli's book is long overdue - a guide for the more adventuresome cruiser who wants more than the cruise line hype pushing their tours. This comes close but I would love to see more detail, a la Rick Steves, on very specific itineraries for the adventuresome cruise passenger. The general background on each port is nice but it just fills pages and is readily available from other sources.

One other matter, specific to Alaska and a few other places. In some ports, like Skagway and Ketchikan, where one or two cruise ships' complements can outnumber and overwhelm the local population, the cruise line run tours often book up some venues, so the passenger has no choice but to book through the cruise line and is well-advised to do so in advance. Noting those venues and tours would be equally helpful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Alaskan guide 26 Oct 2012
By P. Darnell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been giving Alaska by Cruise Ship to clients in my cruise travel business for nearly 15 years.
It's got a great map inside, and tons of good information about Alaska's many beauties.
And the cruise ship information is pretty up to date.

My clients have all enjoyed it.
