I Like a cruise with interesting ports of call.The Caribbean has nice weather but the ports are not very interesting to me.I am curious know why you prefer those? This is my first cruise ever, I want to make sure we are thinking through everything since the cost is not cheap. Thx!!
Europe is great. So glad I got to go to Vienna this year but the things my wife and I enjoyed about it (read: the rich history of the area) would bore our kids to tears.A European cruise will provide the opportunity to see some of Western Civilizations top sites. Alaska has wilderness and an awe inspiring landscapes. The Caribbean for most people brings beaches and animal viewing ( turtles and dolphins ). The Caribbean will probably be easier, more Disney immersive and save you money. My kids love Europe and like the Carribean for the Disney thing, they don't love beaches.
We would like to do Alaska, but the total cost slows me down and I love Europe!
