Rather than flying, which is very expensive to Sitka from Anchorage or Seattle (I paid $400 one way last year) and rather than spending a few thousand per person for a cruise, consider the ferry system. You have your choice of the inside passage which starts as far south as Bellingham, Washington or Prince Rupert, British Columbia, the Southwest (the aluetian chain) or a cross gulf trip. Maybe there's more too. But you can choose when you get on, how long you stay in certain towns and your whole itinerary, rather than have is set up for you. It's much less expensive than the other options if it's just you and your family (no automobile) Adding a vehicle, depending on size, does get a little more expensive...you can check the rates on the website. There are definitely more trips made in the summer seasons, but the cost is less in the Fall, Winter and Spring. There are a total or 9 ships that make these trips to 33 ports. It's an ideal way to travel through Alaska. Once you get to Seward, you can take the Alaska railroad and at any place, you can rent a car.
