    White Pass Summit

    At the risk of being a broken record... (There are quite a number of threads on the White Pass excursion.) Here are the photos... http://alaskacruiseblog.com/photos/white-pass-railroad/

  7. Bring the teenager along. Third person free in a room on most cruises.
  8. The Tanaina had a water jet propulsion system and it rode fast high on plane when going to and from Seward, but apparently the waves weren't so bad on our day. My wife had a sick day on the HAL cruise ship, but handled the Kenai Fjords Tanaina very well. :)
  9. In Anchorage, there is a UPS pack and ship. With our land tour being last, we packed all the cruise ship dressy excess and other extras and sent them home. Very reasonable and carefree. They had a box just the right size for our extra suitcase. Our trip: /narratives/anchorage-a-day-off/ Anchorage: http://www.theupsstorelocal.com/0131/ Fairbanks: http://www.theupsstorelocal.com/3191/

    Land Tour tipping

    It's sad when an employer screws an employee to the degree that the employee must depend solely upon tips to be satisfied with the job. Some of these guides/directors/attendants must be gloating about what they are "raking in" or the job pool would be empty.
  12. Our closest approach to Aialik glacier... Click to enlarge photo. See the whole tour at... http://alaskacruiseblog.com/photos/kenai-fjord-sea-excursion/
  13. The train was a lot more fun than the bus! Check the photos... http://alaskacruiseblog.com/photos/white-pass-railroad/
