I would look at Princess, they have a lot of options. Also, talk to a good travel agent, they can steer you in the right direction.

I agree with Donna about talking to a reputable agent, as they can provide as much information as you need in order to find the best one for you. Everybody is different and what one person loves, another will hate. It'm important for you to find the one that matches your requirements, lifestyle, and budget.

With that said, if you don't mind an older crowd, Holland America has been doing Alaska longer than any other cruise line, has the most itineraries, and the most ships in Alaska. Their land tours are absolutely awesome.

If you're a bit younger, then Princess would be my second choice.

Celebrity would be my third choice, but if you want to see glaciers on your sea portion, then Celebrity and Royal Caribbean would not be a good choice, since neither of them go to Glacier Bay.

Again, this is why it's important to talk with an agent, so they can help you find the best cruise for you.

Thank you! We would for sure love to see Glacier Bay. Our kids will be 14 and 8 the time of the cruise.

Really loved our Princess Alaska tour. Wish we had flown into Fairbanks at least a day early and it was tough to choose between the Kenai Peninsula and Wrangell St. Elias.

Would like to go back and do an Uncruise to spend more time in Glacier Bay.
