We used a Princess motor coach transfer from Anchorage to Whittier and it was very efficient. By completing the Ocean Ready process before we left home, the Embarking was super easy. The services once we boarded and before we left port were plentiful. Our cabin with balcony was plenty big for the two of us. It had a desk and small sofa with the queen size bed. Bathroom was always kept clean. We picked this cruise for the itinerary and were surprised how much we enjoyed the food and the entertainment. Customer service was always exceptional. We pre-booked all our excursions through Princess. They were expensive, but all providers were very good at their specialty. I highly recommend the Hubbard excursion to get close enough to see the immense glacier size and any calving. The cruise ship does not get very close. We did a special photography safari in Juneau and were very lucky with the whale watching. The boat driver knew how to find the whales.The tour size was limited to 14 people. In Skagway, we took the train/bus combo. Best views were from the bus and are fabulous!. The lunch stop is very touristy. The food was good and the dog sled puppies are fun. Disembarkation was super easy with self carry early departure.

Not usually a cruiser, but loved this cruise
