A popular cruise line polled its Facebook fans to learn which destinations and travel experiences top their bucket lists in 2011. Respondents answered that their No. 1 destination choice for the coming year is Alaska. One-fourth of respondents resolved to travel to the 49th state in the coming year. Other survey highlights:

- More than one-fourth of consumers chose a U.S. destination over an international location, citing Alaska as their first choice. The Caribbean (15%) and Europe (14%) also made many people’s lists this year, with fewer folks choosing Hawaii (8%); Panama Canal (7%); Africa (5%); Australia (5%); Amazon (4%); Asia (2%); Canada/New England (2%); Mexican Riviera (2%); New Zealand (2%); South America (2%), and India (1%)...

Even fewer people want to travel with their siblings (3%) and parents (2%) this year.
