since this board seems to be very savvy re: cruises, thought i'd ask if anyone has taken the inside passage through alaska? my partner and i and sister and brother-in-law are taking the norwegian star from seattle to alaska, and will have port of calls in ketchikan, juneau, skagway and prince rupert. if anyone has taken this cruise, or has been to one or more of these places, please let me know what you think is a sight/excursion not- to -be- missed. i've never been on a cruise before, nor have i been to alaska, so i'm really looking forward to this trip. (be happy to give a shout out to sarah palin for anyone here!) i just learned, however, that the ship has poker games, which is a mixed blessing given my love of this sport. i just don't want to be up half the night playing, and then sleep through all the sights-- like whales, and glaciers in the morning! what a waste that would be!!
we're leaving 7 august, back the 18th, so will probably be off line during this time (unless i can check in at an internet cafe along the way, which i may do, since it will be difficult to not be in touch here for that long).
