Default Which cruise ship to Alaska do you like best??

I just retuned from Alaska (May 27th,Mercury).I LOVED it ! We are thinking of going back next year.For those of you that have been to Alaska many times...Karen16..others?? I know a cruise/land tour is in my distant future,but can only do another 7 day cruise next year.

We enjoyed the Mercury,although my hubby didnt seem to mind,my brother says he and his wife are not that interested in doing the formal dining every night.Since we travel from Houston,they dont want to bring as much luggage this time.

We loved the scenery and the Glacier treks,helicopter and float plane tours were wonderful.I know we would be interested in the glacier again.Not interested in doing the WP train this time.

Any suggestions on a cruise ship or itenerary? Dot

I suggest next time go to Glacier Bay. We think it is even better than Hubbard Glacier.

All of the ships have buffet options if you don't want formal.

Also, Cruise West and other smaller ships have wonderful itineraries and are all casual.

Food is a VERY low priority for me sailing Alaska, all the ships have the alt. dining.
NCL and Princess have freestyle/personal choice. But Princess doesn't go to Glacier Bay and their routing is not my preference for all the outside passage sailing. I give a big edge to Vancouver HAL with some including both Glacier Bay and Tracy Arm. Plus some "smaller" ships.

I cruised Alaska in June on Island Princess and went to both Glacier Bay and College Fjord and they were spectacular. Dianne
