DH and I will be on the NCL Pearl, and have been on an Alaskan cruise before, 5 years ago. We did the jeep/canoe excursion, which was fun, but cold in the canoe. I'm thinking of renting a car and seeing some sights ourselves as DH is not into small boats since we had a bumpy ride on a catamaran on the way to Capri. The Salmon Falls Resort is as far north as one can drive, suggestions to drive to Harriet Hunt Lake and to Herring Bay also look nice, getting away from the crowds. Comments? It looks like we'll only have about 4 hours.
