First Alaska Cruise

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are in our 60's (Ok..I'm not quite there...but close enough!) and this will be our first cruise. We want to take one of the 7 day round trip cruises. We are leaning towards one that leaves from Vancouver and does the Tracy Arm, Juneau (because we have heard good things about the bus trip to Mendenahall Glacier), Skagway (because I want to do the rail excursion), Glacier Bay and Ketchikan. We've been looking at the ms Zuiderdan (Holland America Lines) because it has the date late in July that best fits our schedule this year and there are some really good last minute deals on rooms with a balcony.

Any experts want to comment on this itinerary, ship or excursions? What to take on a cruise and what not to bother with? Do we need a travel agent or can we do this on our own? How soon would we want to book the excursions?

Thanks in advance,
Utahtea
