We will be taking our first Alaska cruise on Princess Sun deparating Vancouver July 4, 05. Does anyone have suggestions on transportation out of Whittier? We're going to spend 4 days on land "doing our own thing," and want to make the most of our time. I'm debating whether to book the train thru Princess or arrange for private transnportation to meet us in Whittier to get us to Anchorage to pick up our minivan (4 people plus luggage). Thru a websearch I found a company by the name of ALASKA TRANSPORTATION GROUP which charges $40 pp (about half what the train costs). Is the train ride worth it? Anyone have experience with ALASKA TRANSPORTATION GROUP? Any other companies? Can't wait til July.
