Welcome to Cruise-Chat. Our Princess ship docked right next to the Pan Pacific Hotel, which is where we stayed. We walked from the ship terminal into the hotel. It was a post-cruise package through Princess. The hotel was rather expensive but very high on the "WOW" factor!
In Anchorage we stayed at the Captain Cook. It was also very nice and arranged through Princess.
I'm just jealous of anyone going on an Alaska cruise. We had such a great time and plan to go again within the next couple of years.
