What are some things you would have liked to have known before your first cruise to Alaska?

I have to give a talk to my local senior center about cruising in Alaska on April 22. I am trying to gather a list of things that people wish they had known before their first cruise to Alaska so I can pass them on to those that have never cruised before. Any tips, suggestions for shore excursions, or things not to miss will all be greatly appreciated.

Alaska has some crazy scenery and wildlife. I agree, a lot of stops are tourist traps though.
