Main concerns: intinerary (noticed Victoria stop is quite short at four hours), meal quality and variety, entertainment, how busy the spa/pool/gym/etc. is....thanks a bunch.
That's not a bad itinerary, but I would recommend a "Voyage of the Glaciers" cruise between Vancouver and Whittier (Alaska) with a couple nights in Anchorage instead. Most of Princess's "Voyage of the Glaciers" itineraries visit both Glacier Bay and College Fjord, and Anchorage is a really great city with unusual shops, excellent restaurants, street festivals and an open air market almost every weekend in the summer, and many points of interest. If you rent a car, you also can take day trips from there to see some of Alaska's magnificent interior.
