Has anyone ever been on an Alaskan cruise before? What's it like? Weather, ports, activities, etc...??? My family has thought about all going on a cruise. We are all married with kids and my parents (70yrs) aren't really the caribbean type thought maybe an Alaskan cruise would be something they would like.They have always wanted to go to Alaska. It wouldn't be my first choice but I don't really know what to expect , maybe I'd like it. I've actually been to Alaska twice. My husband's brother lives there.
