  1. Thanks to everyone that posted on this tread. After looking at the various cruise lines and their Cruise/Tours we decided to go with a 11 day packaged tour called GB4. This is a southbound tour that starts in Fairbanks and ends up in Vancouver. Princess was offering a number of incentives and we were able to get a nice balcony room mid ship on deck 12 for our trip in June. I think we'll have a great time based on what I saw. Thanks again for the help and advice.
  2. Thanks everyone for the feedback but I think our plans have changed a bit. We've had a lot of people tell us that if we don't do the Cruise and Denali tour with the buses and train we will really miss out. Since this will probably be the only trip to Alaska we have decided to go that route. Since this is our new direction can anyone tell me if this makes a difference in the cruise line and Denali package we would want to take? We have also heard that it's better to take the southbound cruise and it seems to most of these return to Vancouver, BC instead of Seattle. Any and all info will be appreciated.
  3. My wife and I would like to take a cruise to Alaska leaving out of Seattle. Assuming that the various cruise ships leave out of the same port in Seattle, can anyone point me toward a hotel that (1) would be is close to the port (2) offers a free shuttle from the hotel to the port (3) is a nice, clean, hotel good for vacationers and (4) a hotel you can easily reach from the airport as we would be flying in and we won't be renting a car. Also can anyone suggest whether one should plan on staying over night when the cruise is over prior to going back to the airport? At this point we don't have any plans to spend any time in Seattle other than getting ready for the cruise and/or getting rested up for our return flight home. Any help will be appreciated.
  4. Thanks for the recommendations on which cruise lines to go with. We're both active seniors that work out in our local gym so we're not afraid to get out and walk on excursions but we do like creature comforts as well. We like to gamble on the boat and engage in other activities. We would never take a Disney cruise anywhere as we would be more inclined to be around adults more than children so perhaps RC or Celebrity would work best. What about Princess? Where do they fit in the mix?
  5. My wife and I would like to take a cruise to Alaska leaving out of Seattle. Assuming that the various cruise ships leave out of the same port in Seattle, can anyone point me toward a hotel near the port that (1) is close to the port (2) offers a free shuttle from the hotel to the port (3) is a nice, clean, hotel good for vacationers and (4) a hotel you can easily reach from the airport as we would be flying in and we won't be renting a car. Also can anyone suggest whether one should plan on staying over night when the cruise is over prior to going back to the airport? Also, can anyone suggest which cruise line is better for a couple in their mid-sixties? We've been on Carnival and Princess before and each was OK but those were cruises to mexico and Caribbean and since this Alaska I would appreciate some suggestions on which line would be more enjoyable for us. Thanks in advance for the info.
