It's much easier to book through the cruise line and there is not hat much difference in price. Don't know about the bike and brew, but the Helicopter ride to Mendenhall glacier is extremely good but expensive. they actually leave you on the glacier with a naturalist for about 45 minutes then come get you. If you go to Skagway the train to White Pass is a once in a lifetime must do thing. Sitka is a walk around place. If you have never seen sea otters that one would be really great they are wonderful. If you are from California forget that.
Landlocked in Denver, but cruisin every chance we get.
