I've been reading everybody's comments and am finding you all so helpful. Here's my question: My husband, brother, sister-in-law, mother (88 years old) and I want to take a cruise to Alaska in 2006. It'll probably be the only one we take there, so what would you all recommend as the essentials to see if you were to go only once? Which ports of call? Which route? My brother and his wife are in San Francisco, and the rest of us live in Indiana.
Thanks for your help.
