My wife and I (both late 50's), are thinking of making our first trip to see Alaska as a vacation. I was thinking of a combo cruise and land package. I am also uncertain about when to go. I heard that there are months when it rains a great deal, so avoid those. I would appreciate any advise on:
1) A great cruise to consider
2) Land tours or mini vacations that I can work with the cruise
3) Things that I should not miss.
4) Best month to go and what weather conditions would be like.
