Juneau, AK

In Juneau the Solstice didn't dock but had to be tendered into the city. While we were supposed to "arrive" at 1:30, Celebrity didn't start handing out tender tickets until 1:30. Passengers who had made shore excursions with Celebrity got the first tenders regardless of their schedule. We got tickets in group #2 and didn't board the tender until 2:30.

We had no trouble finding our ride for "Helicopter Icefield Excursion" from Shore Excursions Group but the weather closed in and while we flew over Hubbard Glacier we couldn't land. They gave us a full refund.

We met an old friend and had dinner with him at Hanger on the Wharf.
