We take this trip every year. OK, the food is good but not great but the view is spectacular mile after mile and the chocolate chip cookies on the ship are fabulous. Saw five whales fishing together on our last trip

Sorry Kellyyou, I mis-read your question. Yes, you will have time unless there is some type of delay on the cruise.

Kenai Fjords requires passengers to arrive an hour before time to disembark to check in. I also recommend calling them and explaining your situation and seeing what they recommend.
Hello all, Need recommendations and well assurance that this trip is the right one for my family. Family (Hubby, Mom, Babies 4 & 3) will be in Alaska for 14 days to explore. I read about the Kenai Fjords Cruise and Love all the pictures that have been posted. My only worry is that my babes are a little young but soo outdoorsy. Is this 6 hr cruise worth it for the little ones? how have other little ones dealt with it? My kids have been on long boat rides for snorkeling but not 6 hrs. Also my hubby and mom get sea sick. Is this the best tour/cruise out there for my entire family. Our Alaska plans thus far are: Land Fairbanks - drive to Denali - train to Anchorage - flight to Kenai - Kenai Fjords - Kenai fishing - Flight back to Anchorage - Flight back to California. Any and all help recommendations/ advice will be much appreciated!! Thank you all in advance.
