I am looking for some help in choosing which line, in your valued opinion, is best to use for Alaska Cruise at the end of June 2013 (preferably around the 20-25th as need to be back by 3rd July). Have previously travelled with NCL in a suite (so cannot downgrade now!!) 2 adults and 1 child (6), and need to take into account kids club facilities. We are travelling from Ireland so a roundtrip will work out cheaper for us (dont mind what port). Looking to do inside passage, and either hubbard or glacier bay, but open to ideas on what else we really need to see. Disney is totally out of our price range (unless we swim the Atlantic first!)
Our budget is $5000-$5500 for the 3 of us.
What we liked best about "suite" life was the priority boarding, and use of restaurant for breakfast and lunch (no queueing). This i would like have again! The butler and concierge come third to this! Decent sized balcony would be nice, no preference to forward or aft of the ship.
So over to you guys, i know you will do your best to help us out!! thanks in advance for all your posts.
