I'm trying to plan my 2009 vacation, I'm looking for some feedback to help make my decision. We are debating a week long Alaskan cruise or two weeks in Maui. My math has me leaning towards Maui, but I'm still not sure. We can't seem to pick a time although we are thinking that around Thanksgiving of next year might work. Last time we went it was Oct and it was great. Was how does everyone else weigh out their vacation plans? The price is coming out pretty close.Still searching for cheap flights, that could also make a huge difference.
