tour stop at Mendenhall Glacier was to short needs to be more then one hour. To many ships at port causing to much congestion. Went up the tram and had to wait 90 minutes in line for the return back. Had I know that would have not taken it.

train trip was excellent and beautiful scenery. Not enough trams to take back passengers to the ship. Had to take the long walk to board the ship. No information was give on which deck to leave ship. it was very confusing and staff did not know either.
