Re: Alaska cruise photography

I worked on the Alaskan iteneraries on Princess Cruises for several months and took my D300 everywhere I could. I’ll second everything people have said so far and add a couple:

Ketchikan: the city itself is really unique. Take some time to wander a bit. Some cool things to see.

Juneau:  I did a whale watching tour exclusively for photographers. The picture of big fluke I caught is still hanging proud in my living room.

Skagway: White Pass Railway without question if you can only do one trip through Skagway. It’s just iconic and beautiful. If you ever get a chance for a second option, I did a helicopter glacier tour that yielded a lot of good pictures.

Finally, stay on deck whenever it’s light, especially for the sunsets. Stateroom and interior time is when it’s too dark to get any pictures. Otherwise, unless you’re at sea there’s always something cool nearby.
