My girlfriend and I are heading to Ketchikan, AK end of March. We will be working for ACT (Alaska Coach and Tours). This company seems to have the best seasonal perks compared to others. The season does not start until May 26. We would have to be there almost two months earlier however, for the CDL training, as we did not opt to be trained in Utah. The company is a very small company compared to Princess but it is a little better (hopefully this is the right decision) as far as bonuses and travel allowance offered. ACT also offers housing but food is not included. Has anyone of you seasonal pros worked with ACT in Ketchikan before? As far as the housing, are the units decent? And far as the cost of living in that area, it is reasonably feasible to save a decent amount of money earning $10-12 an hour with $9/day rent for company housing (each person) at the end of the season, without sacrificing everyday necessities and occasional recreation? Any feedback will be great. Thanks.

Hi John,

I was wondering how your season with ACT went?
