The white pass railroad is a must do in Skagway. You can book this before the cruise either with the cruise company or with the railroad itself. The main advantage of booking it through the cruise company is it picks you up right at the terminal/ If it is raining this is a big plus. I also like what is called the bike and brew. You go on a nice 9 mile bike ride and then they take you to the Alaskan beer brewery. This is in Juneau. Do not book the Mt Roberts tram because if it is rainy or very cloudy, then it is not worth it. But if it is clear, then this is pretty cool. You can get off the cruise ship, walk 1/4 mile and then go on the tram on your own and save a couple of dollars to boot. In Ketchikan I liked going on my own and walking to creek street where you can shop like crazy, see a fish ladder and maybe lots of salmon too. I’ve been on 3 cruises to Alaska with the last one this past May. You will love an Alaskan cruise.
