I know I probably could search the entire board to find some answers on what I want to ask; however, sometimes it's just easier to ask away and hope people will answer My husband and I are debating on taking an Alaska cruise in 2013. We'll have two small children, ages 3 and 1. We're wondering honestly if it's "worth" going on an Alaskan cruise when the kids are so young or if we should stick more with the carribean route. Any suggestions on this would be appreciated. Also, what is the weather like during May/September. The cruises during those time periods seem to be cheaper, but I don't really want to go then if it's still terribly cold. Anyone have any experience with those cruises during those time periods? Another question would be is it best to fly to Seattle and drive up to Vancouver or fly into Vancouver right away. Sorry for all the questions, I'd just like someone's opinion before I book!! Thanks!
