Easiest disembarkation ever! If you flying out of Anchorage we highly recommend booking your travel to the airport on Alaska Cruise Transportation. They were amazing! We booked the package that included a couple of scenic stops on the way to Anchorage including at the Wildlife Park where we could get out and see some of the native animals to Alaska. The drive and tour guide were both amazing and made the somewhat long journey go by incredibly fast.

We have been to Alaska 6 times. Once you get to Whittier, take the 26 Glacier cruise aboard one of the Catamaran 's . It is a 4-5 hour cruise out in Prince William Sound. Lunch is included I have done it twice and it is truly AMAZING!

It was fine. People have to realize Whittier is simply a port, not a shopping mall. You don’t have much at any port. Transition from the train to ship was easy. They had cruise personnel on the train before we got to the ship explaining things to us and checking us in before we got to the ship. The train ride was beautiful. You get to see God’s handy work before you!!
