We have never been to Alaska and are considering a cruise/land vacation to see the area. Unfortunately, we have never cruised before and have been to Alaska so we have a few questions to those who have gone before us to get us going.
Essentially we would like to get an idea about which cruise is perceived as the better Alaska cruise experience based on scenery, ports, food etc... In addition, we are interested in what the thoughts are on do a CruiseTour with the cruise company or if it is better (cheaper) to plan our own pre/post land package and if anyone has used the Alaska Tour book offering the 2 for 1 tours while on cruise and how difficult it was to coordinate the tours with the ports etc...
Thanks so much in advance!
p.s. We are planning to take our trip in July of 2013!
