My husband and I just booked our first cruisetour to Alaska and we are soooo excited! We sail on the Dawn Princess on 7/19/04, then head to the Princess Copper River lodge for 2 nights, the Denali Princess lodge for 1 night, and then Fairbanks for a night. Anyway, I see some really great ideas and suggesstions on this board, so I thought it would be fun to challenge you all to help me plan the perfect vacation. We are going to be in so many ports and there's so much we want to do, but we don't know which port is better for what. It would be great if you Alaska veterans would give us your opinions as to what activity you recommend at each port. We really really appreciate any advice you can give us and we thank you in advance for taking the time to help us plan this lovely, eagerly anticipated journey!
