NTA - Wife's suggestion is unreasonable, did you compare options?
NTA and a couple of this i would like to add. 1) unless you got refundable tickets for cruise / airplane, you are not going to be able to change them without losing a ton of money. 2) Cruise lines use they smaller ships for Alaska cruise because biggest ones won't be able to dock in most of the ports, so even the one she found might be bigger, it won't be like a huge difference in classes. Also, Alaska is so beautiful that if the kids are "bored" take them to the top deck and look at those mountains!. Alaska is beautiful beyond words / pictures. I am confident you all will have a great time with the right mindset 😊
