My wife and I are considering travel on the Alaskan Ferry System in summer 2008 but as older folks wonder:
1. Would it be comfortable and safe enough if we took a cabin and went from Bellingham WA all the way up to the train connection to Denali Park?
a. Is there any cushioned seating on the deck?
b. Do we have to eat hotdogs and hamburgers all the way?
c. How are the beds in the cabins?
d. No disrespect but we watched people boarding at Bellingham
last year and it was colorful but also a bit like the bar scene in
Star Wars 1977
e. We don't want the "cruise" experience but we've ridden the
ramblin wreck known as Amtrak in our part of the U.S. and
don't want that experience either.
2. The Alaskan Ferry (Highway) System also offers some package deals which include side trips. Has anybody had any experience with them?
