Wife and I cruised last year on the Golden to Alaska, nice ship and I'm sure you will enjoy it. Unlike the warmer regions that have ALOT of excursions that are based on water. Alaska has a lot less to pick from. Riding a train to a remote area and back or visiting a glacier, that sort of thing. I didn't really see anything different at the shipboard exursion desk that I didn't see on there website. Make sure you pack a sweater,even being summer it may still be chilly. Have a great trip and happy anniversary.
