Seward would be a must on my list unless it just became too inconvenient to get there and include it in everything else. Kenai Fjords tor, Exit Glacier, kayaking.

Another gem is the Spencer Glacier Whistle Stop. You wonít find many that have done it although itís a very good experience. Saves some bucks by catching the train at the Portage Station that is about 15 minutes south of Girdwood.


As mentioned, Tripadvisor is a better place to get trip planning info for Alaska. Another option would be Cruise Critic. There are many who, besides cruising, are planning land tours.

The ferry would be an option between Whittier and Valdez which allows you to complete a loop without backtracking.

I want to thank everyone for all of your suggestions and help. You have been great

We have to cancel cruise and trip due to medical issues. Nothing life threatening, but no flying for a while and we sure don't want to drive from Ohio to Alaska

Hope to pick it up again next year (2019)
