Ketchikan
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
In Ketchikan, we walked around the Creek Street are. It's a beautiful and very interesting historical area that was worth the walk. We also enjoyed the Alaska Bar in Ketchikan (located right at the cruise ship port).

Juneau
Mendenhall Glacier Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Gorgeous area. Great trails that take you to salmon breeding areas. We saw lots of salmon. The Glacier is magnificent.


Mount Roberts Tramway Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Great views, great trails atop the Glacier. We watched a very impressive movie about the history of the area and the indigenous peoples. There is an injured (and recovering) eagle on display at the top.


Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Wonderful little museum. Provides excellent viewing area (telescopes) of the Glacier.

Seward
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Seward is the most like a regular Alaska city/town -- (ie: it was not dominated by jewellery or t-shirt stores). The Marine Centre was fantastic! The water side park is beautiful.

Icy Strait
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
Icy Straight Point isn't really a town (the tiny town is a few miles down the road from where the tender boat drops you off). However, the walk along the beach and into the woods is beautiful! They've also got a great Crab Shack on the pier. The Dungeness crab was delicious. Icy Straight Point also has a zip-line that our fellow travellers said was exhilarating.

Skagway
White Pass Scenic Railway Rating: 5+ out of 5+
We really enjoyed the White Pass Yukon railway trip in Skagway. The trip is fun, the scenery is impressive, and the landscape is awesome!
