Should we go to Alaska this summer or someplace else ?

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone,
We are a family of 4, 2 adults in early 40s and 2 kids ages 12 and 8.5. We are fairly well travelled , take 2 big trips every year. My kids are also well travelled.

We are in the process of deciding on our summer vacation this year. Alaska is one of the places on the list.

But lot of questions though: we want to combine rocky mountaineer train journey with Alaska. At the same time , we are not cruisers. Should we consider big ships, or small ships (like un-cruise) or completely on land ?

I am looking for a memorable trip with great experiences for all of us. We are not traveling on a budget, flexible on how much we can spend.

Any input and suggestions are highly appreciated
