This was a relaxing train ride into the White Pass region of Alaska. The round trip took app 3 hrs and the tour guide in our car was very informative regarding the founding of the railroad and why as well as the history of the region.

The one we booked was called White Pass Railway & Klondike Highway Journey. This required our passport as we crossed the Canadian border and a couple of border patrol officers had to see our passports.

Everyone does this shore excursion. It's the same whether you buy it from RCL or when you get there except that those who buy it from RCL can board just in front of the ship while those who don't have to walk into town and board it there. This usually makes a difference (it did for us) because it's pouring rain. Read Less

This might have been our trip highlight. This railway take you through very rugged terrain, and gives you an up-close feel for the challenges that Alaskan prospectors faced in search of gold.

It was enjoyable, but overpriced for the experience. We were disappointed with the inability to take pictures of particular highlights because of the speed of the train and trees that interfered.

The scenery was breath taking.
Sail Date: July 2019
The scenery was breath taking. Our bus driver (Candace) was great. She shared so much history about Skagway and made the bus ride fun. The railway however, was very very long and not too comfortable.

Great train that took us in the mountains and saw a lot of the glaciers. We crossed over into canada for a brief moment. At the highest of the train ride I was afraid to look down. A lot of history i learned on this ride.

This trip goes up and back on the same track so it doesn't really matter which side of the car you sit on. Unfortunately, the weather was overcast and misty so the views were not as good as they would have been on a sunny day. The story of the rush for gold in the Yukon was fascinating and our host made the trip very interesting. They easily accommodated my oxygen equipment. Skagway itself is a colourful town with lots of shops and tourist attractions. Read Less
