one way or R/T to Alaska on Princesss

Jump to last reply

Trying to make my final decisions before booking a family cruise for 7 this July coming from NY. I have been getting such great info from the forum that I wanted to ask a few more questions.
Here are my options:
1. Seattle/Seattle on the Crown Princess to Glacier bay stopping in Juneau, Ketchikan, Skagway.
2. Vancouver/Whittier A/k Northbound on the Island Princess.ports the same
3. Whittier/Vancouver Southbound on the Star Princess.ports the same
My questions.
1. The Crown is a much bigger ship holding I think 1,000 more passengers. The others much smaller. Any pros and cons to that or did anyone like one over the other?
2. The flights into Seattle are a little cheaper and more nonstop than the others but the one way trips have more opportunities for glacier viewing. In Seattle we would be flying in at least a day or two in advance. Is it worth the air travel troubles to cruise one way?
3.Could we do a flight plane excursion on the R/T Seattle cruise and see the same Glaciers?
4. How easy it to fly into and get to the cruise from Anchorage? If we wanted to stay over to make sure there were no delays are the hotels expensive there and in Vancouver? Seattle we found one for about $120 a night. I need 3 rooms.
The price of the cruises are about the same with the one way being a little cheaper, but the airfare is a little higher so I think price wise it's about the same I think.
Last question :-) Is there any benefit to booking your cruise with the cruise line directly or a travel agent? We are planning on getting travel insurance through a separate company.
