A whole lot of ships go to Alaska, but very few go to the Chilean Fjords. If you are going to "splurge" on Silversea then you might consider going to one of their exclusive destinations as well because you can always find another ship to Alaska. However, if you take Silversea to Alaska you are not going to find a lot of alternatives going to to the Chilean Fjords.
Well my wife & I went on our first cruise this past January to the Bahamas with friends. She has been everywhere & done everything & I'm still pretty new to all of this. We generally don't do first class travelling but I would like to do something special with her. The cruises have wound up being anniversary gifts.
I see your point about Alaska...
