I agree with Norm, by all means ride the White Pass & Yukon Route (WP&YR), narrow gauge railroad to White Horse in Yukon territory. If you have relatively clear day the scenery is once in a lifetime drop dead gorgeous!
Another thing I recommend is the helicopter ride in Juneau to the Mendenhall Glacier. They take you up and leave you on the glacier with a naturalist for about a half an hour then come and pick you up and drop off more tourists. It is a great experience. A bit expensive but worth it.
As for the drinks, people have been known to sneak vodka aboard in water bottles -- but far be it from me to suggest such a thing.
Landlocked in Denver, but cruisin every chance we get.
