Actually, my first thought for this trip was to fly into Anchorage, rent a car, and do our own tour -- but since we've been wanting to do a cruise for a long time, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to combine the two adventures. Again, thanks so much for the input -- I can't believe how many cruises many of you on this board have taken, it's clearly an addiction! Very reassuring to have so much experience to call on for advice.
