We had such a great time on our cruise the year before that my brother & his wife took our parents, who are in their mid-80's last June. Everyone loved it.

We took the Princess lines, went from Vancouver to Seward, then up to Fairbanks and Denali. We did the extra leg in 3 nights, they did 4.

Our feeling was that we were only going once, time was limited and we wanted to see as much as possible. We do not ordinarily favor going as part of the herd, but felt we couldn't have covered the same area on our own.
We took the side trips that appealed to us, and left the usual cruise stuff to the folks that enjoy it while we spent most of the time watching for wildlife.

There was plenty to be seen. The whales were great, but we'd have missed the grizzlies, moose and caribou if we had only done the water portion. My folks got a picture of the grizzly who stopped their bus so he could amble down the middle of the road in Denali Park. That was worth the whole trip for them. Reminded them of the family bulldog.

Hope you enjoy your trip!
