Does anybody have any inside info on when Princess will be offering their 2010 summer Alaska Cruisetour schedules?
It seems like I ask this last year and someone said April. Is it still too soon?

They should be out any time now. Usually April or May.

OK, I am getting ramped up for the 2010 SB cruisetour. I need some feedback. We want to go when the salmon are running so we can go to the river and see the bears. What time of year is best for this and which lodge do we need to end up at to take atour to see the bears? I am looking at the DB4 SB. Will this one work?
That will do for a start.
We what to book very soon.

I don't know anything about the land tours, but I'm not sure I would want to get close enough to a bear to be able to see it catching salmon :-)

It is a very safe long as you go with someone who can not run as fast as you

So do you know about the tour that takes you to see the bears. Is it on one of the cruisetours.
Where do you look to find out about the excursions for the cruisetours.

My Uncle has taken a tour out of Homer Alaska a few times. They run Bear tours. I think it is this company. I do not know of any ship tour, but this does not mean that there isn't one.
My Uncle loves this tour and plans on doing it a few more times.

Not sure if the above link will met TOL of cruise chat. However if you Google "cruise ship tour to see bear in alaska" you will come up with some information.
Hope this helps

I've been on 3 Alaska cruises and don't ever recall seeing a ship's tour which included bear watching.....I'm going on a 4th Alaska Cruise in 2010 and would like to see them myself...We do have 3 Alaska brown bears that catch fish here at the Minnesota Zoo if you are ever in the area....Happy Cruising...
