ALASKA CRUISE: Haines or Skagway?

We're choosing between two identical cruises. One stops in Haines, the other in Skagway. If I have to choose, should I visit Haines or Skagway?
Thanks!!

We loved Skagway---rode the White Pass & Yukon RR, took the Park Service guided walking tour, visited a couple of small, but interesting museums, walked the main street and did a little shopping.

There is more in Skagway, but both places worthwhile. Request visitor guides and do your homework. Take a look at shore excursion lists and determine your touring priority, then perhaps choose between the two.

I did a cruise that stopped in Skaygay with an optional trip to Haines. I must say I loved Haines and look forward to visitng again some day. Did an eagle and wildlife viewing/walk excursion, one of my favorite days of the cruise, and the scenery from where our tour stopped was amazing. Everyone seems to rave about the White Pass Railway, but I am so glad we chose Haines instead. Did walk around the small town of Skagway, had a nice time
