Catching a cruise in Whittier

I plan to visit Anchorage for a couple of days before heading to Whittier to catch a cruise. What is the best way to get from downtown Anchorage to the port in Whittier?

I'd suggest the 9:45 a.m train: alaskarailroad.com/Schedules/…Default.aspx . It gets you into Whittier in time for an afternoon glacier cruise with either 26 Glaciers or Major Marine.

You could also take a transfer offered by your cruise ship.

Assuming you are taking a Princess cruise, they offer shuttle service from downtown at the convention center on 5th Avenue. They leave around noon, and the last time we used them (2009) it was $55 each
