We are doing a Princess CruiseTour with stop at both eye Denali lodge and the McKinley lodge near Talkeetna. Both have many Flightseeing options? Is this a "must do?" We have plenty of glacier viewing opportunities with a further stop in the Kenai Peninsula as well as our southbound cruise going both to Hubbard Glacier and Glacier Bay.
So I think the question centers around Mt. McKinley itself. Are the Flightseeing views that much better than ground based views? I know you can't really get very far into Denali National Park on the road. I thought I had read the mountain views were actually better from the southern (McKinley) lodge. I'm thinking maybe we should hang on to our big spending for another stop.
What's the verdict cruise friends?
