Jacket, Good reminder about St Petersburg.
Thank you all once again for all the information to consider.

Our Baltic cruise was cancelled in 2020. We were scheduled to spend two days in St. Petersburg. We booked a two day excursion with a tour company and they were going to supply wheelchairs and someone to push them at no extra charge. It was TJ Tours.
I don't think you can compare Alaska to the Baltics.
If you are a nature lover at all, Alaska is breathtaking. We started in Calgary and toured the Canadian Rockies which blew me away. We ended up in Vancouver where we boarded our cruise.
I feel a balcony is a must on an Alaskan cruise. Of course you can always go up on deck to see the majesty around you, but we loved being on our own balcony.

Some ships such as NCL Bliss purpose built for Alaska have pretty nice indoor spaces. Observation Lounge gives a wider view forward view than a balcony. But I don't think Bliss goes to Glacier Bay.

I enjoyed it at 25% capacity but even half full was too many people (it's a 4000-passenger ship).

Alaska’s natural beauty surpasses Norway. It is breathtaking!

Book the cruise Sassafras and make sure it includes Glacier Bay. We did not have a balcony but enjoyed sitting on the non windy side of the ship alone with our pick of lounge chairs since everyone else was on their balcony.

Thank you all.
Schmerl, Thanks for the tour information. It may come in very handy.
Deladeb, Thanks for the encouragement. I will let you all know when and what we decide.
We are dealing with a few health issues, should have some definitive answers soon. We are watching Covid numbers, and hoping for a trip during GD’s Spring break in April (short, someplace warm). I am the family planner and already have three itineraries picked out if Covid numbers look good. I would also love to go to Bermuda in Summer, but am totally open to whatever DH and the rest of the family wants to do. DH is really talking up Alaska, so I want to have a plan ready, especially for a place like Alaska, which we are likely to do only once. There have been several good trip reports on Alaskan cruises, so it should be easy.
