We visited Skagway aboard the Celebrity Infinity and planned this excursion months in advance. The conductor told great historical stories as we climbed and climbed and climbed through the mountains. We rode the train to Canada and then came back to Skagway via motorcoach with other stops. I loved that you could go out on the car platforms and take photos, and our family bought the train's CD to have for future views. The CD includes even more history and photos about the historic train and what it meant back in gold mining days. We visited in September 2010 although I didn't have that date choice for this review.
