I know this a really difficult question but I have only cruised on RRCL and am planning a special cruise for hubby and I for our 25th.
Which cruise line is the best for Alaka? Any feedback would be GREATLY appreciated

In Alaska Holland America and Princess. They have been up there the longest. For most people seeing Glacier Bay is a highlight of an Alaska cruise. HAL gets the most permits into Glacier Bay, then Princess. Both these cruise lines have pull and know the ropes in Alaska.

If your budget will allow it, look into Cruise West. They're a small-ship line (100 passengers or so per ship) and doing Alaska on them is beyond excellent! My hubby & I did our 30th anniversary on them - wish we could afford them every year! (I have a review on cruisereviews.com about it, if you want to check it out.)

Congrats on your 25th!

We took the Holland America Ryndam from Seeward to Alaska on June 25, 2006. There was a lot of sewage problems and sickness onboard ship. Be careful here.

I would strongly recommend Regent Seven Seas - click HERE for a list of their Alaska cruises on the Seven Seas Mariner an all-balcony, all-suite, 700 passenger luxury vessel. I've sailed several Regent (was Radisson) Seven Seas ships and have quite pleased.
