Default Glacier Bay or Sawyer Glacier?

Thinking of sailing to Alaska in May 2010. I have been on both the Star and Pearl, I liked both of them! In May 2005 I sailed to Glacier Bay on the Star and had a wonderful time. Should I try a new route? What is the biggest difference, from what I see is Cruise Galcier Bay vs Sea Day, Victoria vs Prince Rupert.

It seems like a bot longer in ports on the Pearl (Glacier Bay). My sister is now hooked on cruises (she just returned from her first one with me last week to Bermuda!) and would rather go Saturday to Saturday. For me it doesn't matter.

Any input appreciated!

In terms of glacier viewing, I would say Glacier Bay is better. However, if you have already been to Glacier Bay then go for something you haven't seen before.

There is so much to see and do on an Alaskan itinerary that it would take many cruises to do them all.

Take care,
Mike

Glacier Bay is amazing. The other Alaska and South America glaciers are interesting too, but nothing compares to Glacier Bay, especially on a sunny day if you are so lucky.
