Any advice for my son, his girlfriend and their black lab, who are driving from Seattle to Kenai, Alaska, leaving tomorrow in a stuffed Subaru. Cautions, cheap hotels, not-to-be-missed sites, route suggestions, something they should not forget to bring (they have duct tape at least) They're 26ish and going to Kenai for jobs.

Thoughts about an Alaskan cruise?

My wife and I want to go on an Alaskan cruise in the latter part of August. We have a couple questions: Is that a good time to go? Next, could we do a week long cruise for under $4000 (airfare to the Northwest included) on a non-sardinish cruise liner? Any thoughts or recommendations would also be appreciated. Thanks!
