Alaska CruiseTour Aboard the Diamond Princess

We are planning the Diamond Princess EA5 CruiseTour from Vancouver in July 2010 for 3 couples.
1) Who offers the best discounts for booking the cruisetour?
2) Any comments regarding the best & worst excursions?

Hi, we have also booked the Diamond Princess but we are ending up in Vancouver. Did you enjoy your cruise and can you tell me if the upcharges for specialty restaurants like Sabatini's are worth the additional monies?

Thank you.

The specialty restaurants are definitely worth the small surcharge.

You do know that the Natural History tour is a waste of time, IF you are going to Denali park to see wildlife and scenery?

Consider changing this, also, what do you plan to do at the McKinley lodge for 2 days? This is an isolated area, with very few activities. In Talkeetna, an hour away, flight seeing is the most popular touring.

Hopefully, you have fully researched this choice and this is what you wish to occupy your time with? There are many alternatives that for some, would offer much more.

Budget 50% more for meals than you would at home.

Compare pricing through several booking agents.
