Alaska for the rest of us Sept. 28 2012
By Russell Mason - 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.

Alaska Cruising Feb. 5 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.

The Perfect Guide Book Aug. 18 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!

Nice background - short on details June 23 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.

Great Alaskan guide Oct. 26 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.
