Thanks for the info guys.
Donna, I will be stopping in Ketchikan, Juneau, and Skagway. After getting to Whittier I will be continuing on the land portion to Mt. McKinley, Denali, and Fairbanks. I am wondering if anyone took the helicopter excursion to the Arctic Circle. I want to land on the glacier and wonder if you take the Arctic excursion if you also get to land on a glacier. The website descriptions are not very informative. I like talking to folks who have actually done the trip.
I am only 45 years old, but have cancer and this will probably be the last trip I get to take. I want to do the best! I am not into Hokey, disney-like excursions. I want to see the unique and awesome. I have done the whale watching off the coast of the Azores. Probably would like something different this time.
What is the Island Princess ship like? I know it is not brand new, but maybe has been upgraded since its inception?
