Haines to Juneau

Is it a ferry boat or a cruise ship? It holds 549 passengers but also 154 vehicles, so it must be a ferry. But it has a restaurant, bar, shop, movie theater and an on board naturalist. Cabins are available for longer trips. Our trip takes 4 1/2 hours with glacier views on both sides, a clear day after many days of clouds. This is the cruise ship route and we get to see it all. We see humpback whales bubble feeding, quite a sight. And we have our Jeep along.  All we are missing is the ice carving, gambling and endless food of a cruise ship.  Fair trade off for us.
