It was rainy which is typical here, but we did see many eagles and totem poles at Saxman Village, on a tour we hired at the dock (not through NCL), which cost $50/each. It was on a bus with a too-talkative driver we didn't like. It came with a tour of Dolly's (former brothel) which we skipped. I'm not sure we got our money's worth and wish we'd done a different tour or two.
Heavy clouds sitting on Juneau and rainy. We took the Mt.Roberts tram up to the top ($27each) and hiked around. Good views up there, gift shop owned by the Native people who also own the tramway was interesting. This was a brief port stop as it was also the day we cruised the glaciers in the afternoon.
Skagway was extremely windy. We walked around the town looking at the touristy gift shops, then found a hike to do on our own. Almost rented bikes from a bike shop in town ($14/2 hours) to tour around on except it was too windy. Wished later we'd taken the train ride with the crowds, but at the time we wanted to escape them. The afternoon train we didn't take got delayed at the border by crossing guards scrutinizing passports but the ship held off sailing until they returned as there were 60 of them, too many to leave behind!
Pretty setting, weather unexpectedly sunny. Dreary port town with no touristy shops like the previous 3 ports that we could find on a quick look. Returned to the ship to eat in the main restaurant. Too much time in this port. Would've prefered super-touristy but interesting Victoria as our Canada port.
