Juneau....a helicopter to one of the glaciers....AWESOME
Skagway....the Whitepass Railway trip...also breathtaking
Hubbard Glacier....not a port....it's an up close and personal view from the ship of the glaciers.
Ketchikan.....just walked around there....can't help you...sorry. Mgram

Yukon and White Pass train in Skagway (or do the bus one way and the train the other); Helicopter glacier landing out of Juneau (or if you don't want to spend big bucks - I did the Juneau Explorer by Land and Sea - was a great time. Saw the highlights of Juneau, the Chapel by the Lake, Mendenhall Glacier and then did a wildlife viewing cruise - worth every penny!); Ketchikan you might want to consider a float plane trip to the Misty Fjords National Monument.

We are scheduled to go to Alaska on Sept. 1.

The whale watching excursion in Juneau is widely recommended on these boards. When I booked our tour with Carol of Orca Enterprises, she was wonderful.

The website is:

Wishing you a GREAT Cruise!
