I”m terrified of cruises!! I have a serious phobia of being on a boat that big on a body of water even bigger.

That’s what I originally thought about Carnival, however, apparently they do Alaskan cruises very well (I know many people who are frequent cruises who tend to use the upperclass ones who have found this one comparable). Although I probably would not take them for any other destination.

Holland America is very good, they actually own most of the hotels up there so if you are planning on staying onshore in addition to the cruise they are the best choice. However, they are also significantly more expensive. I have been told that its worth it if you stay onshore but if not, then although there is a difference, it is not a large one.

Try to find people who have actually gone on the cruises who have similar travel styles to you. I found that helped me the most.
