You should probably ask this in the cruise thread.

ETA: Never mind, I see that you already did.
I tried to cover both the Cruise side and the Alaska side.
I am not 100% sure about this. But I am going to click it anyway.

Should I have quoted SF's post, and sub-quote your post?

ETA I guess that would have gotten my point across better.

What is the minyan situation like in Anchorage? I realize that there's few if any locals, but on Shabbos in July and August, is there a reliable minyan at Chabad Friday night and Shabbos morning? Any chance for Shabbos mincha or Motzei Shabbos maariv, Sunday morning, or Rosh Chodesh?

I wasn't there over shabbos and didn't visit Chabad at all. If I remember correctly Yehuda S did - he'll probably have more info.

Also check out their site.

The guy who checked me in at the RV place was suggesting I go check out the reform temple - it's called the Frozen Chosen ;D. No, thanks...

I believe that pun has been used as the headline of EVERY news headline that has to do with Jews in Alaska...

Try flying Alaskan direct from Newark, using AA miles. I'd say that's the best value.

Make sure you also check cash prices. Sometimes they're really low - I paid $172 for ANC-MSP-LGA on DL last summer.

Wow. What's the shortest time frame that is still reasonably worth going for? 6days?
