Juneau
Mendenhall Glacier Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Standard cruise ship port town, jewellery and souvenir stores with jacked up prices and hyenas waiting to sell you a trinket. People we met on the ship looked at a necklace that started at $16,000 who then haggled it down to $3,000. They didn't buy it. We went to the Mendehall Glacier by taxi - which was awesome.

Skagway
Scenic Drive Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Standard cruise ship port town. They have tried to keep the town looking the same as during the 1890's during the gold rush. We took a bus tour up the White Pass that followed the gold rush trail and train line. Views were to die for and the history was great. Fairly decent walk from the town to the ship, that was docked last in the line. Weather was cloudy, rainy and cold, but then you come to expect that in Alaska.

Port Rating: Not Rated
Celebrity bought the port and set up jewellery shops (go figure), a zip line center and nature walking trail (that was pretty cool) otherwise not sure why there was any benefit to stopping here. You can walk 1.5 miles to town or take a shuttle for $8 return. Recommend staying at the Port, unless you are a walker, otherwise nothing to do/see in town.

Kayaking Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Standard cruise ship port town (starting to see a pattern?). We booked a kayaking tour with Southeast Alaska Kayak - which was one of the highlights of the trip. Maria our tour guide was awesome!
