    depends on what you like to do. Denali for sure. Ask for car rentals that can drop to Seward.

    For cruises in Alaska, it all depends on your style and budget.
    -- Small ships (with lecturers, up-close-to-shore abilities, but fewer on-board amenities): Cruise West.
    -- Medium-sized ships, luxurious, and more high-end: Seven Seas Regent Cruises.
    -- Big ships (thousands of passengers, so crowding in ports is a problem, but very good on-board amenities/activities): Holland America, Princess Cruises.
    -- Cheaper options: Alaska Marine Highway ferry boats.
    Hope this helps!

    1. Definitely rent a car for at least part of it. Lots to do within driving distance.

    3. Depends on what your interests are. Wildlife viewing (land and/or marine)? Glaciers? Hiking? Fishing? Rafting? Goldpanning? Flightseeing?

    4. Again, what are your interests? Any particular port of call you are most interested in seeing? And what time of year are you going?
