Help with Glacier days on Alaskan cruise

Jump to last reply

I have finally given in to my husband's wish to do an Alaskan cruise. I know it will beautiful and I will enjoy it (everyone tells me so), it just has never been a dream of mine to see Alaska. We are in our 60's and have done many cruises. We are apparently “atypical” cruisers; we do not particularly enjoy days at sea. We choose cruises that have one (at the most) “sea days”, which of course is one reason I have not chosen an Alaskan cruise. We tend to enjoy exploring different cities and countries more than we do shipboard activities. We are also “atypical” in that we do not care which cruise line or ship we are on (within our budget...which is the Carnival, Celebrity, Princess, RCL, NCL lines). We have been on all of them and have always been more than satisfied. Enough background..my problem is picking an itinerary. I am not concerned about which ports we see...I am sure we will find something of interest at each. My problem is picking the days at sea, or the “Glacier Days”. When I read the cruise lines' descriptions of the different “Glacier Days”, each one seems to be described as a “don't miss.” So, my dilemma is picking an itinerary that will make those days memorable. My research has shown the following choices: Glacier Bay National Park, Hubbard Glacier, Inside Passage, College Fjord. I would just like to hear of your experiences on your Alaskan cruises. I know everyone is different and we all have difference likes and dislikes. I would just like to hear of your thoughts on these areas, to help me determine which cruise to pick. I am also concerned about too many “Glacier Days”. Is this the kind of thing where each of these places is truly different and enjoyable? Or is it just of the same scenery over and over again. Thanks so much for your help.
