Hahaha! Ask 100 people for their opinion, and you will get...100 opinions
I really appreciate the view point of each of you. All have a valid point, and each point helps me form an "educated guess" as to what will work out for our family. I'll have to let you all know how it turns out for us - maybe I'll be able to help the next new cruiser after my cruise with a personal account with one more opinion
Thanks again - maybe I'll be seeing you in beautiful Alaska soon!!
