Thank you for the input about Alaska cruises--it's really helped Hubby and me tremendously in coming to a decision. It looks like we'll be giving it a try. What I didn't mention last night is that the cruise was booked for us through my office. Since the firm first started, they've given their employees a vacation trip of some sort when the employees reach their 10-year anniversary. In the past few years, some of the firm's employees have hit their 20-year anniversaries, and the partners decided to add a 20-year trip bonus. I'm one of those 20-year employees and we were offered four or five different trip options. The Alaska cruise sounded like the best idea to us and here's why: Hubby's idea of a great vacation is to drive somewhere and enjoy the scenery from the car, stopping occasionally for food and to check out a museum or a shop. So a cruise sounded much the same except he wouldn't need to keep his foot on the gas pedal! When we learned, though, that there were no cabins available with views, we worried it would make a big difference to our enjoyment of the trip; it's good to know there are plenty of other public areas on board that are quiet, temperature-controlled, and have views. Whether we're cruise people or not, I suppose we'll find out, but I guess we can't know until we try it.
