My cabin-mate has been before, and she recommends seeing Misty Fjords in Ketchican and the Helicopter tours in Juneau, any old one, plus everyone recommends the White Pass Rail in Skagaway.

We'll also be doing the whale watching in Juneau. If there's not time for both, I'm taking whale watching over the helicopter. Guaranteed to see a whale or 100 back.

I've heard there's not much in Valdez, we may just hang out on the ship there.

I got back from an Alaskan cruise on June 10th on the Sun. The whale watching in Juneau was PHENOMENAL!!!!! You are going to die when you see the humpbacks in Stephens Passage. We also saw a bunch of Sea Lions, bears, eagles. We took the excursion thru Princess. I heard its even better when you talke the private Orca Enterprises one with "Captain Larry". Its a much smaller boat with less people. But I was very very satisfied with the excursion from Princess.
