We did a zip line and challenge excursion, which we loved! We did rock climbing, zip lining and made our way through an obstacle course. I gave a 3 because I wasn't impressed with the area where the boat docked. I would definitely recommend some kind of excursion and save your shopping for the other ports.

We decided to not due an excursion in Juneau. The port was cute and had a lot of places to shop. I did most of my shopping here. Had breakfast at a cute place called the Silver Bow that someone in Ketchikan told us about. Good bagels and cream cheese. We took a local bus to the Mendenhall glacier for $16 round trip. We were only from 7-1 so we felt a little rushed, but overall a good time.

My absolute favorite port! Felt like I was on a movie set for a western. A lot of stores so a good place for souvenirs and shopping. We ate at the Red Onion Saloon which use to be a brothel back in the day. Very cute place and $5 for a 15 min tour. Check it out. We also did a train ride through the White Pass Railway. Was the highlight of my trip! 40 mile round trip train ride up the mountains with awesome scenery. Highly recommend this!

Not much to see at the port. We did a nature walk at the Butze Rainforest that was nice. But overall, not to exciting.
