Subject: Alaska by road
Hi Ziners,

We are booked on a cruise up the Alaskan coast in June, but are a little concerned that a cruise ship could be a good breeding ground for the new flu bug. Our doctor was telling us just the other day that a cruise recently had to be abandoned as 260 crew and passengers went down with a flu.

Is it feasible to travel by road up the coast and still have access to some of the scenery, excursions etc. We had allocated a week for the cruise.

*I have a feeling this may have been covered on this site recently but I have deleted the messages.

Any help would be appreciated. We have paid a deposit on our cruise and this week they are asking for the rest of the money######

Thanks for you help Elizabeth and David, New Zealand
