Just found this excellent site. Haven't cruised since 1990, but just booked a Cruisetour for Labor Day Weekend 2008 on the Diamond Princess. This will be my travel companions first cruise.
Any helpful tips would be appreciated. We will be traveling from Chicago and returning from Fairbanks. We have not booked air or shore excursions yet. Any ideas would be appreciated, especially shore excursions you really enjoyed.
Lastly, I am a collector of art glass. Has anyone found any glass makers in port?
