We did the exact cruise, same ship, 3 yrs ago. We booked the transfer with HAL Seward to Anchorage. It's quite a ddistance, probably over 2 and a half hours not counting the stops. We stayed a couple of days there and then flew home. We have cruised the inside passage 3 times now, Van-Van twice and Van to Seward once. The trip that stands out was the day into the Yukon, fantastic day. Obviously we have done quite a few different excursions over the years. The Mendenhall glacier is a popular one as is the side trip down Tracy Arm. Sitka is a lovely town[you can walk this one yourself] and Skagway is the gateway to the Yukon. We have yet to fly the Misty Fiords over Ketchikan 'cos it's too misty and the flights have been cancelled. My son and I kayaked down one of the fiords in Ketchikan the last time we were there and it was an outstanding experience. The husband went to a lumberjack show! Too much information to give in one account. Anything more specific, do ask. It's a fabulous trip. We will go again in a few years time.
