Alaska with seniors - cruise plus land trip

Jump to last reply

Hello guys. We are a three-generation family of six persons, aged from 25 to 88. Our oldest family member is, unfortunately, walking impaired. We want to travel to Alaska in July/August 2014. We will fly from Germany to and from Vancouver. Our rough idea is that we fly into Vancouver, board a cruise ship and sail to Seward. There we rent a car and drive to Denali, spend a couple of days there and drive to Anchorage and fly back from Anchorage to Vancouver and then home.
My questions are:
What else would you recommend for such a trip? Actually, we have a couple of days more, and what sidetrips would you recommend for our crazy party? (Since we have the two seniors, hiking and kayaking are out of question.)
We like to drive by ourselves. But would you recommend any tours (e.g. wildlife viewing tours)?
Do you recommend an additional small-ship cruise into some fjords?
For the main cruise from Vancouver to Seward, which cruise line would you recommend? (Our seniors tend towards the Holland America cruise with Ketchikan - Juneau - Skagway - Haines - Glacier Bay - Seward, but maybe there are cruises which include College Fjord?)
Thank you for your tips.
