We are booked for the train from Seward to Anchorage through Princess. I was wondering if I would have any time to tour Seward prior to having to catch the train. Our flight does not leave Anchorage until midnight, so I am in no hurry. I would like to have time to see the Alaska Sealife Center in Seward.
No, you get right off the ship and on to the train. It is a wonderful train ride, much better than taking the bus. Beautiful scenery and one can walk around the train, go to the dining area, etc., at one's leisure. We enjoyed it a lot.
Frank is right. You'll be among the first passengers off the ship because the train leaves Seward at 7:00 AM.
If your flight is not until midnight, though, you'll have plenty of time to see downtown Anchorage -- and it's actually a rather nice town! Princess operates a "hospitality suite" at a downtown location (it was at the Egan Center on my cruise last August) where you can check your luggage while you visit the downtown area. IIRC, the last shuttle from the hospitality suite to the airport is at 6:30 PM so you'll have to claim your luggage by 6:00 PM or so. Of course, you can check your luggage with your airline and then take a taxi to a nice restaurant for dinner....
