Loved the Mendenhall Glacier and also went to the Gold Creek Salmon Bake. Great place to eat and check out the waterfall and the fire pits for the marsh mellows to roast! Love the town of Juneau!

small town, free WiFi in the library located on top of the parking garage located across from the Marine Park and Red Dog Saloon. Musher Camp excursion offered by cruise line is the same one they offer in Skagway (on dirt). There are tons of booths for sight seeing tours if you don't purchase on the ship, they are located on the docks. If interested in Jewelry, Jewels by Kris were super friendly and not so pushy.

Make sure to visit the Mendenhall Glacier and Nugget falls. It's only a $12 shuttle which you can get right outside the ship. No need to prebook an excursion. It will take only 2-3 ours back and forth. If you want the additional experience, do the dog sledding either on land (via shuttle) or on the Glacier (via helicopter).

GREAT port ! Beautiful. Whale watching and Mednhaul Glacier: ok, first, the glacier - NO reason to spend huge sums to see it. a short bus ride leads to the park where you can walk 5 minutes to see the glacier or walk one (VERY EASY) mile to see the glacier AND an amazing waterfall - WELL worth the EASY walk. Whale watching - it's a hit or miss. You'll see them elsewhere, but, if your looking to see them feed, again, they dont do it on command. The port is GORGEOUS and the shopping is decent....although MUCH better prices in Ketchikan.
