Hi, I don';t know anything about Alaska cruises but it sounds intriuging. What are the basics? Is the inside passage the way to go? Sorry if this has been asked a million times but........well I'm too lazy to read through all the old posts ha ha. The truth is, I don't understand half of what they say.I'm trying to get familiar with the ports etc. but so far I'm clueless. Any info will be greatly appreciated.
