It was a rainy day, but we hiked to the falls regardless. The views of Mendenhall Glacier were beautiful, the trail very well maintained and the falls spectacular!

Yeah you can take it, but you have to take it outside the cruise. Right there in the pier there some drivers that can take you over there.
