We took a bus $16 round trip to Mendenhall Glacier then hiked the East Glacier trail on our own. Saw fresh bear scat on the trail so we made lot's of noise.
Would have like to spend more time in Juneau. Didn't have time to go up Mt Roberts Tramway.
Saw bald eagles right on dock.
Again, an all too brief stop. We walked around the town, saw salmon swimming upstream and went to totem pole museum. Interesting and only $10. Had to try Alaskan salmon. Had a very nice salmon chowder and salmon sandwich at take out restaurant by the dock.
We booked the Steam Train tour at $200+ per person. Price is rather steep. Train trip was interesting and scenery was beautful. Well narrated. Sparkling wine served at the summit is a bit corney. Train turns around at loop at the summit so you see both sides so it doesn't matter which side of the train you sit on. A major detraction is the smoke and exhaust from the engines blows intoo the cabin and we all had headaches fom the smell by the end of the trip.
Overall its a nice trip but rather pricey.
Really too brief a stop to do anything. It's only on the itinerary as a token "foreign" port so Carnival can sell stuff duty free and allow gambling.
