Alaska or Galagpagos - Family of 4

Jump to last reply

Hello - We are a family of 4 looking to piece together a trip in mid June. Considering the Galapagos or Alaska for mid June 2017...both are on the bucket list. The kids are 12 & 14 and have never been on a cruise before. One is shy the other is more social. We would spend most of our time together not looking to ditch the kids in a camp or ranger program.

What are the best cruise lines or tours for these places? Looking for a 6 - 8 day experience but could stretch that a little. Our budget is flexible. Meaning my husband says just book the best you can get and I'm way more practical. I am hoping for some deals since it is close to departure.

Have you gone to either place with your kids? What were the pros/cons? I am concerned that an Alaska cruise may be geared to an older generation but that may be an outdated stereotype.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
