My girlfriend and I want to go on a cruise in Alaska in the summer of 2008. Being in college money is a somewhat tight, so we can only fly really too Seattle (coming from Raleigh, NC). Flights to Vancouver and Alaska themselves are so expensive, but a flight to Seattle is only about $250. Given this information I am trying to figure out which cruise line would do the best job on covering some great places given the Seattle is further and time is more limited. To me, I see Celebrity doing the best job as this. Also what are ports that are have to sees? Finally, is there anything else I'm forgetting to ask or check out? Oh yeah, and I don't think we're gonna do a land-tour.
