You need to broaden your horizons. Just back from a trip to Canada and US that included 10 nights cruising from Seward to Vancouver that took in amongst other places, Glacier Bay.Yeah I have nil interest in playing canasta or shuffleboard on a boat
However a trip like this, around some fjords or down to Antarctica might just tick a box
I have now planned that availability levels will be low this week post away
This was my first ( actually only ) cruise experience. Was initially reluctant to go on a cruise but loved it. Van to Seward, Seward to Anchorage by train, drive to Denali.You need to broaden your horizons.

And not a shuffle board to be seen.
we did a Hurtigruten mail boat run from Bergen to Kirkenes a couple of years ago. Kinda like marine camping, the cabins are pretty basic but the food is good. best part is the new port every 3 - 6 hours (if only for 10 minutes), worst part was the fat af German tourists taking all the nice seats up front all day long.
We looked into doing a Northwest Passage with Ponant, with whom we've been to Antarctica and The Kimberley (and are going back to Antarctica with in 2021). We thought we were immune to sticker shock, but the price caused us to do a deep breath inhale. We will look into Adventure Canada as a potential alternative.
