The Disney Wonder is not a luxury cruise ship, or anything approaching a true luxury hotel. It is very nice and we loved our Alaska cruise on the Wonder, but if you're expecting real luxury (a la Four Seasons), you're going to be disappointed.Luxury hotel on the sea with view of wilderness sounds good to me , but wife and daughters not sold on the chilly weather and small town ports.
There are many beautiful sights to see in Alaska. The point of visiting there is to appreciate nature, rather than to explore a big city (although home port Vancouver, Canada is a great big city to explore). The closer to the peak of summer (July) your cruise is, the warmer the weather will be. We cruised in early June and it was always too chilly to comfortably swim on deck, if that is any indication. But it wasn't bitter cold, and we even had a rare day of sunshine in Ketchikan.
Bottom line, if your family isn't enthusiastic about visiting the Alaskan ports or cruising without warm weather, then I don't think this cruise is a good fit for your family.
