Seattle attracts us because we can either drive or fly from Utah albiet it would be a long drive. I do feel the airfare would be less expensive to go to seattle vs Juneau or?? Thanks
You are right that it is usually cheaper to fly to Seattle than it is to fly to Vancouver. Both cities are great and both have outstanding attractions. In my opinion the better choice would be to sail from Vancouver and be sure and take a cruise that goes to Glacier Bay. Sailing out of Seattle does cut down on some of your time in Alaska. We generally take a one way cruise out of Vancouver but that does add to the cost of flying to or from Anchorage.
At the end of the day my choice would be to take whichever ship that goes into Glacier Bay National Park.
Hope this helps.
I don't know anything about the travel club you mentioned but I would recommend doing a lot of searching on the Internet before finalizing your membership.
