That's what we said then we made it happen. Plan a year or more ahead for savings then structure payments to have it paid for by the time you go. Paying the cruise lines, no interest. We rarely take a balcony but consider one for Alaska. Doesn't matter what side. In the inland passage it's same scenery on both sides and in May/June/July always daytime. No balcony cheaper and you can always go up top.
We took land/sea cruise with 6 days land and 7 days at sea. We found many on the sea part (last 7 days) who regretted that after paying airfare to get to Alaska, they didn't take the land part too. (Denali, Mt McKinley, Fairbanks, pipeline, gold mine, Anchorage, much more) We felt, Dream Vacation, do it right the first time because it will be expensive to do it again. To give you an idea, booking way ahead and while on another cruise: $3500 for two. Sounds like a lot but less than a week at Disney.
Make it happen.
