I am going on the exact same cruise (not quilting part) 2 weeks earlier in August along with my DD and DGD. I was shocked at the additional cost to add the quilting part. Nearly triple of what we are paying. Usually the quilting only takes place during the days at sea which are only 2 on this trip. There is a fun quilt shop in Skagway called The Rushin Tailor. We went on the same itinerary 5 years ago and visited the shop. There is also a big store I think called Alaska Shirt Co. Great place to buy souviniers. Better price than the ship!
