2 current itineraries:
One is to take a PWS cruise after debarkation in Whittier. Afterwards we would head up to Alyeska for 2 nights, hitting up the Alaskan conservatory on the way up. Spend a day in Alyeska, going up the mountain, mild hiking and relaxing, hitting anything local, ie, 20-30 minute one way. 3rd day would be a leisurely drive, hitting various points between Alyeska nnd Anchorage, a meal and off to the airport towards evening for a redeye home.
Second choice is to debark, get our rental and some groceries and head towards Seward. We would plan on hitting Portage Glacier and some scenic stops along the way, and hit Exit Glacier on that day as was well. Next day we would do a full day boat tour and relax for the evening upon return. Final day we would get an early start out, maybe 6:30am or so?, and head towards Anch. We would stop in Alyeska for the mountain tram, lunch and scenery before finishing the drive to Anchorage, a meal and airport for redeye.
I was pretty set on the second choice until reading about all the traffic issues. I don't want the drive from Seward to Anchorage to be a pain, I want it leisurely and relaxing. We aren't so much about doing it all, as enjoying what we do. I also don't want to worry about missing my flight because I mistimed a disaster on the road.
