I did a similar itinerary on the Royal Viking Sky a number of years ago and absolutely loved it! Since most of the crew were Scandinavian, at many port calls families of the crew members and officers would gather at the pier to weclome them home. I loved that as the crew were very happy to be going home.
You will not be disappointed having been to Alaska last summer. Don't get me wrong, Alaska is beautiful and I loved my cruise there on the Sagafjord. However, IMHO, you will be blown away by the grandeur and beauty of Norway and her fjords! In fact, in about a coupe of years, I would like to do the B2B Baltic and Norweigian Fjords cruises on Seabourn.
You will have a great time! Bon Voyage
My favorite cruise is ALWAYS the cruise I am on. My Next favorite cruise will be:

I am not sure why you think you will be disappointed. I did Alaska last summer on Cruise West and did the Pride itinerary the year before. The itineraries are completely different. Fjords are stunning, Alaska glaciers are monumental. I wouldn't trade either cruise.
And thne, there's nothing like the Seabourn experience.

We did the Seabourn Pride last year, Copenhagen to London, via the fjiords and loved it. As stated before, the scenery cannot be compared to Alaska or Chile. It has its own special feel and is most beautiful along with charming stops. Do take it.
