I’m taking Pete and the family on our first official Alaska cruise next Thursday. It’s amazing how much positive feedback we got from people since I booked the cruise. Brad has always been the biggest Alaska fan; he spends almost all of his summer there, but virtually everybody we met who visited Alaska and/or did the cruise raved about it. So, I’m now starting to get really excited.
We’re going to Seward, Ketchikan, Skagway, and Icy Strait Point on Royal Caribbean’s Vision of the Seas. We’ll be doing some helicopter hopping, salmon fishing, whale watching, off-road jeep riding, and we’ll also enjoy plenty of “downtime”. My kids love cruises and so does “my better half” Andrea. She’s really happy that they have some form of kid entertainment on board for a few hours/day (hey, if Mama ain’t happy, nobody ain’t happy).
