About Whittier (Anchorage), Alaska

Anchorage is Alaska’s take on a metropolis, and its population constitutes more than 40 percent of the state’s inhabitants. While smaller Alaskan towns capitalize on raw, natural beauty, Anchorage is quirky and cool.

Beautiful city, easy to get around. Stayed at the best place Anchorage Downtown. Staff were amazing. Snow City Cafe is a must go! Tram tour also great & the markets were really interesting.

We only went from the train to the ship. One of the highlights of the trip was the domed train that we went from Denali Park to Whittier. It was scenic, comfortable and the food was great

Only there one night Captain Hook is a nice hotel. Walked around town, went down to river and watched them fish.

Not much to see in this town with 187 people. Stop in Girdwood on way to Whittier from Anchorage at the Wildlife Sanctuary if you can.

Did the 26 Glacier Tour here and it was beautiful! A national park ranger was on the boat giving the tour, which was very informative. I highly recommend this excursion!

We actually stayed in Anchorage for a few days prior to beginning the land portion of the cruise, staying at the Hotel Captain Cook (that is basically unavailable if not booked through Princess). I'd stayed there 20 years ago and it hasn't changed (I enjoyed it the first time and enjoyed it this time). Anchorage hasn't really changed much in the interim period so I was able to take my wife to the haunts I visited in my first trip (definitely stop by Humpy's Alaskan Alehouse for king crab and beer). The Native Alaskan Cultural Center was interesting (it's outside of town but there is a free shuttle that stops by the Hotel Captain Cook. We weren't impressed with the Museum that is a few blocks from the hotel.
