Took the Glacier Explorer train form Anchorage to Whittier - Highly recommended. The train gets to the ship around 12:05pm, and some of the buses from airport won't get there until hours later. So if you want to get on the ship early - take the train - even if you stay the night before in Anchorage it is worth it. Read Less

also watched from our balcony, was great. If you are going to Alaska or anywhere in my opinion, a balcony room is a must. We watched from the comfort of our balcony in our coats and robes, it was great.

After Glacier Bay, we cruised into College Fiord. That was a far better area to see glaciers. Numerous glaciers with big waterfalls coming down from them. The largest glacier calved several times while we were there. That area should also be a national park. We arrived at Whittier early the next morning where we disembarked and went on our train to Denali National Park. Read Less

Got on the train and the narrator discussed the odd town of Whittier. One building that all residents live in, the military background of Whittier, why cruise ships go there instead of Anchorage...

Small town. Maybe 1 store. We followed an excusrion bus to the national forest where we saw beautiful photo spots. We visited the visitor center (saved $80 for that excursion) where they told you about the parks, the town and different hiking trails. If our parents weren't with us, we would have hiked up the Glacier Trail. Ended up driving to the Alaska Conservation Center where we saw eagles, moose, elk, bears, bison, etc. Read Less

This was a transfer stop for us as we were continuing with land tour. We transferred to Scenic Rail Cars and the trip was excellent. Although it was a 5.5 hr journey we were comfortable seated at tables (like a both) we were fortunate to be able (offered to) move to an empty table so we had room and privacy. Our narrator was exellent and we ordered snadwiches which were nice. All in all the best ti could be for a long train ride Read Less
