I think that the scenery does grow more impressive as one travels northward, but the more significant consideration is the day of the week when a cruise begins and ends. It's worth timing one's trip to be in Anchorage over a weekend since that's when the city's street fairs, outdoor market, etc., come to life. Thus, I would be more inclined to choose either a northbound cruise that ends in either Seward or Whittier on Thursday or Friday or a southbound cruise that departs from those ports on a Monday or Tuesday.
