Just the scenery will be worth the cruise. I would do something like a whale watching excursion and salmon bake in Juneau and/or Ketchikan. The Whit Pass Railroad train, in Skagway has beautiful scenery.
I would save up for one big excursion, such as: Flight seeing, helicopter tour where you land on the glacier or dog sledding. You will never regret it.
Enjoy your cruise and I know others will have some other ideas for your time in Alaska.
