Our room is right behind one of those lifeboats. Yes we are going back to Alaska,this will be our 3rd trip… but what can I say. We love to cruise, love Princess Cruises and you cannot beat the luxury of being able to drive to the Port of Vancouver to start and end the trip.

We are on the same ship as our last cruise to Alaska and in the SAME cabin. This is great as we liked our cabin last time and we will have no trouble finding it again… Welcome to our home away from home for a week.

We are looking forward to returning to Mendenhall Glacier as seen above but hope for a sunnier day… last visit was cold and rainy. This trip we plan on going on a bus trip to the Yukon… haven’t decided if I am brave enough to walk across the Yukon Suspension bridge!

We are traveling with our good friends Ben and Kerri, this will add lots of excitement and fun to the trip.

As this is one of the last Alaska cruises of the season, prices in the gift shops will be at clearance prices. We plan on shopping in Ketchikan, Clark will be looking for Christmas ornaments and shot glasses for his collection and I will be checking out the quilt shops.

On the to do list… pick up cruise documents and boarding passes, organize clothing for the trip and stock some food in the house for my son Michael…lets see , a few pizza’s and plenty of cereal should hold him…lol
