Mendenhall Glacier, Juneau, and a Relaxing Evening
It wasn’t raining when Silversea’s Silver Shadowfirst maneuvered alongside in Juneau, Alaska. But by the time the first lines had been cast ashore at our Berth B location near the southern end of downtown, our liquid sunshine was back in full-force.
Despite the rain, this morning I set off on my first Silversea shore excursion in Alaska – and my first-ever excursion in Juneau!
Silversea offers a total of 24 different excursions here, ranging in price from $49 per person to $2099 per person. At $79, my 3.5-hour Best of Juneau and Salmon Hatchery tour was very affordably priced. One thing I have always found in Alaska is that the cost of shore excursions can be disproportionately high when compared to other regions of the world. But for a luxury line, Silversea has a great mix of options, with most tours coming in under $200 per person.
With the rain pelting down on our windows, we drove to the first of three separate stops that our late-morning tour would make.
