Default Re: Must visit places in Alaska?

My wife (she has no idea, it will be a surprise for her) and I want to do four main things while on the Alaskan cruise:

1) Dog sledding
2) Whale watching
3) Helicopter Ride
4) See as much natural wildlife as possible

With this in mind, please tell a newbie what cities have the best of what I named above.

Glacier dog sledding is available out of Juneau and Skagway from a cruise, Seward also.

Whale watching, Juneau, Hoonah.

Helicopter ride- if glacier dog sledding will get your helicopter ride.

For wildlife- Denali park and Kenai Fjords boat tours are a must.

Allow at least 5 extra days- independent for touring interior Alaska. Very few cruisetours offer both Denali Park and Kenai fjords (Seward)
