Recommended Posts

Historically in Sept with weather, is the morning or afternoon better to do an Alaskan excursion (lets say onto a glacier)? Are mornings in Sept a lot of fog or does the afternoon build up with clouds? Are there any similar daily weather patterns as i want to book my excursions and it asks if i want 7am or 1pm start

Hello @greg edgelow and welcome to the Cruise Critic message boards!

 

Thank you for your new topic on the Cruise Blogs & Websites forum! However, it is off-topic there since that forum is for our members to post links to their personal travelogue-type of cruise-related blogs or websites.

 

To help you out, your new thread has been moved to the Ports of Call - Alaska forum where it will be on topic. The majority of your fellow Cruise Critic members that have been there or live there frequent this forum and provide feedback here. Browse through the thread titles on this forum looking for threads of interest. You will probably find your fellow Cruise Critic members have already posted questions and received answers that may be of interest to you.

 

The Cruise Critic website and message boards are a great resource for new as well as experienced cruisers and we are so glad you found us! Please feel free to browse the Cruise Critic Community categories list for the various message board forums. Read a few threads in the different forums to get a feel for what each forum is about. Make sure you read any pinned threads (aka Stickies) on the top of the first page of threads in most forums. You will find very important instructions or information there.

 

I also want to let you know about the Cruise Critic Roll Call thread for your specific line, ship and departure date. It is where you would post along with other Cruise Critic members sailing with you. It will be the ONLY place on the Cruise Critic message boards where you and your fellow Roll Call thread members are allowed to post personal ads about sharing private tours, excursions or transportation with each other to save money. There is a "captive audience" there since you are all sailing together! Your fellow Roll Call thread members may post important information in your Roll Call thread. Especially those that have sailed your line, ship or itinerary before.

 

Be sure to find & post on the Roll Call thread for your cruise departure date if it has been created. If not, create it yourself! For information about our Roll Calls, please read What is a Roll Call? Everything you Need to Know and How To: Create A New Roll Call. For more information about our famous Roll Calls, please read the Roll Calls and Our Policy Regarding Facebook and Roll Calls sections in the Guidelines we all agreed to follow when registering for our free Cruise Critic memberships. We also have the following Cruise Critic article you might enjoy8 Reasons to Join a Cruise Critic Roll Call

 

So sorry this is so long, but I sincerely hope this information will be helpful to someone new to posting on our message boards. We are so glad to have you aboard Cruise Critic! 

 

Happy sails,

 

Host Kat

Weather is always variable and unpredictable.

 

The potential for all day fog is always possible, but in many cases fog can burn off late morning/early afternoon from heating by the sun and/or the development of land/sea breezes.

 

Preference would be afternoon.
