I will be going on a cruise with my 69 year old Mom in July. We have narrowed it done to 2 choices and want to hear from those of you that have been on an Alaskan cruise what your thoughts are between our final 2 choices. Few questions I have:
Is seeing Glacier Bay a must?
In terms of Sea Sickness, will the larger boat (Ruby) be a more sensible option?
Since I feel that we will see more on the Holland cruise, is their food and service better or the same as Princess?
Thanks!
