Juneau
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
We wandered around the town on our own mostly! Lovely town. The weather was rainy and foggy, so we chose not to go up the Mt Roberts Tram. Instead we took the blue express shuttle bus from the dock, to Mendenhall Glacier....it is a beautiful glacier to see up-close, and the visitor's centre is very informative and worth a visit!

We booked an excursion through a tour company, not through our ship. We took the 'White Pass and Yukon Railway' all the way to Carcross, in the Yukon (briefly stopping at Fraser and Lake Bennett along the way).....wow! What an incredible and historic journey, lovely scenery everywhere you look! We had plenty of time in port that day, so we were able to wander around the town when we returned to Skagway. What a charming town, beautiful buildings and lovely scenery!

This port was wonderful! Such a beautiful place, and it was a lovely view sailing into port. At the cruise ship dock, we booked a short tour with a local company....they took us around the town a bit, and then on a gorgeous drive to Herring Cove, where we saw many bears and eagles in the area! Afterwards, we wandered around downtown and Creek Street (which was very nice). And then we took the tram from Creek Street up to Cape Fox Lodge, and had lunch at the restaurant up there....it was great! A very nice day in a fantastic town.
