Default Best Cruise Line for Alaska

Need some help and opinions, please. Two of my co-workers are planning to cruise Alaska (one is in her mid-fifties, the other is in her mid sixties, and they will be travelling with their husbands). They want to go in May and do the cruise tour. I told them I would post a message and get some opinions. They have it narrowed down to HAL, RCL, and Princess. They want a newer ship, lots of activities, and they want the cruise tour to take them into Denali. Any suggestions?

Thank you,
Angie

Sounds like any of those lines would suit your needs. I have done Alaska the last 2 years on HAL, but I do feel that all the "big names" would do a great job with Alaska. One thing to consider is price, since it has been my experience that shopping around can save you money.

They need at the earliest late May for their Denali Park option with a Tundra Tour. Earlier won't get them far enough into the park,, Skip RCI as they don't go to College fjords and have them look at the longest tours they can afford. Consider transit times so to not have all the time on buses or trains. Have them post their tour choices for more info.
