I have been on HAL twice to Alaska and therefore have earned 14 days of cruise time. We have about 6 couples (family) that are looking at taking a cruise/land tour to Alaska in 2008. We would have the 7 day cruise, then 2 nights in Denali and 2 nights in Fairbanks. Im wondering whether to stick with HAL or try Princess. I have not been disappointed with HAL. Would like to hear from someone who could compare the two with pros and cons of both. Also, my mom wants to know what nationality the crew would be on Princess as we know most of the crew on HAL is Indonesian and Dutch. I have been on the Princess cars on the train, as well as the Denalia Princess Wilderness Lodge, both are great. Any input would be appreciated.

You won't go wrong with either line. They are the two major players in Alaska and both have many, many cruise/tour packages. You mentioned a group (6 couples). If most are in the 50+ category either line would work. If there are younger couples among your group I'd encourage you to try PCL this time. There will be a little more age diversity onboard. Although, for Alaska cruise/tours both will be predominantly senior. Seems to be the only group with the time and income to do more than the 7 day cruise thing there.

Cheers, Neil

Thanks, we range from 77 at the oldest to 45 at the youngest. Will probably do Hal just so we can build up some more cruise points.
