If you go to Mendenhall glacier, check out the bear trail early before the tourists scare them into the brush.

Don't Miss: Check out the glassblowing experience, it included a nice garden and a tearoom that also served Alaskan IPA!

Avoid the ship-promoted jewelry stores, walk to Creek Street.
Don't Miss: Eagles and Creek Street

Pros: Entertainment

Cons: Cigarette smoke pervades the ship, couldn't escape it even on the balcony.
