The whale watching was great. The driver to and from the whale watching boat did a interesting narration about Juneau and was very helpful in securing wheelchair for me. His name was pronounced like Philemon from the bible.
The train to White Pass broke down and the company did not have enough motive power to replace the engine. We were not charged for this excursion but I really looked forward to this excursion. Maybe next time.
Glacier Bay and Hubbard Bay were the unexpected highlights of the cruise. The National Park Rangers were very passionate about the need to preserve these natural wonders. Their embarkation and debarkation process was exciting.
See the comments above. I do want add my appreciation for the crew's navigational skills in getting us so close to the glacier faces. The experience of viewing the calving of the glaciers could not have been better.
