Gonna look into their cruise packs that include Glacier National Park, I don't think the Royal Caribbean cruises I saw included this.
As has been said, most Alaskan cruises are for the older crowd or the family crowd. The one I went on had mostly middle aged people with or without families and older people. As was said, we went Norwegian.

Glacier park isn't a package, they drive the ship right up to the glaciers for an entire day. There aren't may places better for photography than this.

You want a wide angle for this one.

Here is my breakdown on cruise lines:

Princess (Acura) = My favorite. Best value overall IMO. Mostly middle age and older. Great food and choices. Fresh water pools, fun but not a party boat.

Celebrity (Mercedes) = High class, best food, old people, best service, slow pace.

Royal Caribbean (Honda) = Middle class, younger and middle age crowd, average food, lots of activities.

Carnival (Chevy) = Youngest and Oldest mix, party, less quality

Disney (Lexus) = High quality, families, no casino.

Norweigen (Toyota) = Average across the board

Research the SHIPS on cruise critic.com
^ This.

Can't stress enough to look and research on specific ships, they are all different and some even offer different foods.
