We did almost the same thing Norm, back when Island and Pacific Princess were the latest thing in cruising. We went everywhere. Loved Alaska so much we've done 7 cruises there and will be back on number 8 next year. We're doing the Northbound gulf of Alaska cruise on Celebrity, then are making private arrangements to go down the Kenai peninsula to Homer, one of the most beautiful spots on earth, IMHO. So much beauty in Alaska you almost can't go wrong.
