Decision on May 2017 Alaska Cruise

Jump to last reply

We are looking to cruise in Alaska at the end of May 2017 -- this will be our fourth cruise since 2014. I am overwhelmed with books and ideas and decided to try and simplify things and talk to some experts who have been there. We are interested in scenery, glaciers, and wildlife for this trip as well as interesting towns/cities to explore. We are very active seniors (sports, dancing, bars, theater, comedy clubs and wines) and are not interested in dealing with unruly kids and oblivious parents. If we can only travel R/T from Seattle or Vancouver and have 7 days, what is the DO NOT MISS stops/places in Alaska? Anything I need to be sure to avoid? I also want to know if you can see glacier calving while on the Inside Passage or is that only in the national park. At this point I am considering two ships - Celebrity Solstice and Norwegian Jewel but am not entirely wedded to either one. Thoughts from the travel/been there pros?
