White Pass Scenic Railway Rating: 4.0 out of 5+

We did the White Pass / Yukon trip. White Pass railway was great (5). We sat on the left side going up and got the full, breathtaking view. Narration was very good...learned a lot. Princess then bused us up to a First Nation village, about an hour north. The scenery along the way was great, but the village was...OK. I give this part a 3 to 4. Enjoyed the bus ride back with some great views of the railroad as we came back.

Photo Safari Rating: 5+ out of 5+

We did the Mendenhall Glacier Photo Safari. WOW! David is great. The boat is very comfortable and very photo friendly (obviously). We saw bald eagles, seals, sea lions, humpback whales and a large, active pod of orca's who put on quite a show. At Mendenhall, we didn't see a bear, but he was nearby (half eatten salmon and plenty of scat). Oh, the glacier is awesome as well! This tour is limited, so it isn't crowded at all.

Misty Fjords Wilderness Cruise Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

It's maybe a 4.5 - loved it, view is great, naturalist provides good information, and the boat is very comfortable. By this point in the trip, I think maybe I was a little numb to all the beauty. Still enjoyed it, but very little wildlife.
