I'm sure you have the option to purchase transportation, but normally is not included. You'd need to check the package you bought. Takes about an hour, AFTER you get through the tunnel. Cars and the train share the tunnel, so depends on the timing about how long it takes. There are shuttles, one way car rentals and the train as options to get to Anchorage. Just depends on what you want to do on the way and how many are in your party to figure out which is your bet option

yes, NCL does have transportation to Anchorage. I didn't use it, so don't know the cost. IF you have time, I highly recommend a Prince William Sound boat tour, which is grossly superior compared to the cruise ship transit. This then easily hooks up with the Alaska RR to Anchorage.

With which company did you do the Prince William Sound boat tour that you recommend?

Phillips and Major Marine are the two that operate larger boats. There are a couple of companies with much smaller boats as well.

Pauline: You can purchase a combination ticket that includes the boat tour in Whiittier and the train to Anchorage after the boat tour is done.

If you love scenery, esp. glaciers (main focus of tour) and wildlife you will truly love the PWS tour even though you have cruised the inside passage. Being on a small boat, up close and personal with nature is far better than seeing things afar from a deck on a cruise ship. If you love the beauty of Mother Nature and never tire of seeing more and more, you will love this tour.
