Juneau
Port Rating: Not Rated

Very nice place, we went on the Mount Roberts tram, it was expensive, but offered great views.
Other than that, there was lots of shopping in town

Skagway
Historical Tour Rating: Not Rated

We sat in a parking lot for a while, (Princess was not very organied) then were called to a bus that was nearly full and driven to Carcross in the Yukon, the bus windoiws fogged up, so there wasn't much scenery to see, when we arrived in Carcross, there was no time to see the town, we had to get right on the train.
The train ride was really good, it had less to do with Princess and more to do with how well the train was run.
The busride was bad, foggy windows, and nobody telling us what to expect (the people who booked the tour were all freaking out when they announced on the train that they would be collecting tickets (a small thing, but the people running this tour should have told us this, and that the train would be stopping for lunch).

We arrived early in the morning and left at noon, so there wasn't much to do other than shop here. Nice city though, very pretty.

Victoria
Port Rating: Not Rated

The thrusters on our ship were malfunctioning, so we entered the port, but did not dock, after looking at Victoria for a few hours we left.
