and south cruise of the inside passage and then outside cruise from Vancouver, CA to several Alaskan ports and back in 1999 as my first cruise - beautiful views, the food was great (but not 24-hour back then), and being treated like I was somebody... Great way to travel.
My husband and I went on this cruise for an early 25th wedding anniversary gift. We had a wonderful time. Alaska is a wild and beautiful place. The glacier's were simply amazing to this Southern girl's eyes! It's just amazing how HUGE Alaska is!
I spent two weeks in Hawaii and then we cruised to Alaska from there. It was a great trip.
As requested I am posting a few pics here of Alaska... I will post more after Christmas if I get a chance.
