Default Need help with picking ship & itinerary

When was the first sail date of Island Princess? We are wanting to take an Alaskian Cruise but cannot decide on the ship or itinerary. We can do only a 7 day cruise because of lack of time. There are about 6 of us and many had a bad experience with cruise ships. My husband and I love sailing and have sailed Royal Caribbean and several Carnivals. All have been great experiences. We are wanting our friends to have the best experience possible. Through my searching I have come up with Island Princess. The Diamond or Sapphire look outstanding, but I think we would miss not sailing through Glacier Bay National Park. Any comments?

I would recommend either Celebrity or Princess lines to Alaska. Most ships go to generally the same ports (Ketchikan, Juneau, Vancouver, Sitka or skagway and cruise some glacier area). Often the only variance is Sitka vs Skagway, both good ports.

The time of year is from May to Sept. I have a place in Ketchikan, and I can tell you that September can be a nice month to go and cheaper too. Fog or rain is always iffy, no matter what month. Alaska is a must itinery for anyone who will make several cruises. It is beautiful. The only down side now is the large number of ships calling on Alaska. I counted 7 cruise ships in Ketchikan one time!!! But thats another story.
